    When They Tell You To Eat Beforehand...

    They mean it! I almost passed out after I gave blood recently because I hadn't eaten lunch yet. Stupid of me, but I thought I could handle it. I only didn't pass out because I told them I wasn't feeling well quickly enough and I laid down and...

    Faced My Fear of Giving Blood

    Since I was a little kid, my greatest fear was giving blood. I almost passed out just being in the same room as someone giving blood when I was in 5th grade. I did pass out when I had a minor blood test at age twelve or so. I used to cry getting shots. My mother and older sister...

    O Positive, CMV negative.

    Valuable blood. My local blood bank harasses me every single week, asking when I would like to donate next. I prefer to give platelets as apposed to whole blood, as it doesn't send me into mild hypovolemic shock.

    Give Till It Hurts…………

      I’m a blood donor been doing it for years. Although I haven’t done it this year, I really should fix that, blood donation is essential if you can give blood I really think you should. I don’t understand why people who can do it don’t.

    Regularly

    One of my good friends is a doctor.  She makes sure that every time there is a big blood drive that she notifies me and all of her friends to give blood.  I did and felt happy to do it.  I even got my gallon card for donating so many times.  It is a wonderful feeling to know...

    Yup. I Do!

    So far I've only done it once. I gave blood at school. I was awesome at it. It only took like 5 minutes, for the blood to be taken out. I'm an excellent blood giver.  I'll probably start doing it on a regular basis.
