blood tests

So which is true?

How To Order Your Own Blood Tests : You do not need a doctor to order blood tests for you. Several Internet companies offer routine blood tests that you can order yourself.

Genova Diagnostics : Only healthcare providers licensed in their state may order laboratory testing.

Quest Diagnostics : Because of regulations in every state except Arizona, patients must have their doctor request lab tests. To get tested, you’ll need to contact your doctor and find out your options for getting a lab order through him or her.

LifeExtension.com : Life Extension/National Diagnostics, Inc. contracts with physicians who will order your tests, but will not diagnose or treat you. It is highly recommended that you show your physician or healthcare professional your blood test results.

I suppose that last one explains it. But how can I know if the results I would get from ordering a test myself from those online companies would be as reliable as the results if I had a doctor to order it for me?

I wrote down the following, after waking from a dream. It was something I had been thinking (or maybe telling someone) in the dream. I remember that at the time, after waking up, it only made half-sense, though in the dream it had seemed very significant and true, in a sad way. Now it makes even less sense.

"I feel like I'm living life from the outside in." (like I don't really have a life of my own.. just ~pretending/reacting...
