    Default Do you donate blood? How often?

    I do. I don't remember how many times (5<x<10). The mention of needles in the thyroid thread got me thinking about this.

    I have never been allowed

    I have always been too thin or have had a piercing or tattoo too recently

    I think I could right now though. perhaps I should.

    I take ADD meds though. can I donate?

    I'm AB-. Therefore, it wouldn"t be of much use for me to donate blood.

    blood, sweat, and tears.


    really, though, no. I've only given blood once, I think. I don't really remember.

    i finally donated for the first time when during my winter break! i ran into the same problem where i either had tattoos or piercings too recently. so i donated, and then got another tattoo a week later. it was a fairly good experience, but they never called me back about my blood type, so i still have no idea. i love the questions they ask you though. it cracks me up. "have you ever had sex for drugs or money?"
    "no"
    "have you ever had sex with someone who has had sex for drugs or money" "no"
    "have you ever had sex with someone who has been to africa?"
    "no"
    "have you ever had sex with someone who had sex with someone who has been to africa?"
    "ummm no?"
    crazy questions. all the embarrassing ones they say really quickly too. made me laugh. okay, the end.

    they should ask "are you a whore, prostitute?"

    "will you put out now, in the back room?"
    "paper or plastic?"

    I'm ashamed to say I haven't given blood. I am A+. A family member of mine is O-, so she gives blood all the time being the universal donor and all.

    I've never given blood. The thought of blood gushing out of my veins evokes too much anxiety. I would do it, but only if someone else urged me to.

    I like the idea of giving blood, but I get so stressed when having blood taken...

    Plus I don't trust people who want to take my blood anymore! There are too many doctors and nurses who are incompetant in that area. I have rolling veins and in theory that should be no problem but BAH! they can't do it and I get so stressed (heart rate more than doubles as soon as the needle comes out, we proved this when I went to hospital and they took blood while I was hook up to the ECG machine, lol) that if it takes them too many attempts I will faint. Blah

    That is interesting. I have donated blood some 3 times - 0+ for the record - but that was before I spent some time working in South Africa.

    I wonder if now my ex gfs since then are having problems donating blood, and if I would be allowed to donate blood?

    I can't give blood because I have been to Africa? hahaha

    It's okay, they don't want me. I have a really rare blood type. And I have anemia so bad that I some times have to get plasma! Yay!

    I've donated about 4 times but can't anymore. I just find I feel so ill afterwards. Probably has something to do with my thyroid, it seems everything does.

    There are shortages sometimes for my blood type though so I feel bad about not donating.

    I'm A pos. Not the most uncommon but not the most common either. I seem to know a lot of A pos. peeps though so seems weird to me that they have shortages of that type. Until I stopped donating they would call my A pos. father and I up to come in and donate.

    I'm such a waste of an O-, because quite frankly, I believe that my blood is just as important to me as it is anyone else. So you can all fuck yourselves.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...
