    What Do I Do?

    I gave blood at a college spring event at school. I Did it for the free t-shirt & cookies. Plus it gave me the "I did my good deed for the year!" feeling. Well when they came bac the next semester I donated again. I didn't really want the "junkie" hole in my arm cuz it takes me...

    O-

    while not the rarest of rare blood its still not very common. I am a universal donor. I live in a small community so i have never donated blood. The nearest center to donate blood is an hour and a half away. I am a registered bone marrow donor.

    Ab+

    I'm AB+ and I think I'm an alien. I had AML Leukemia when I was 16, thats how I found out my blood type. Some weird things have happened with my blood. I know we're a small part of the population, but I have a close friend who's AB+, and my boyfriend is also AB+. Just joining...

    I'm Ab+

    It's rare, not as rare as AB-, but still rare. I find it amazing that I can take any type of blood, but it makes me feel greedy considering my blood is really of no use to others. I'm just proud to say this is one more thing that makes me a little different from everyone else...

    AB+

    I have AB+, not quite as rare as the AB- variety but still quite rare. We are the universal recipient of blood types, we can receive any type of blood A+, B+, AB+ or O+. However, we can only DONATE to people who are AB+. And so I think my blood is not gonna...

    AB-

    I have AB- blood. It is, as noted in this group, the rarest type there is. My mom nearly died giving birth to me, and received over 4 pints of blood. I consider it balancing a little karma to donate, and I do so whenever I can. I once received a Thank You card from the family...

    And I'm An Organ Donor

     AB- here.  Anybody ever read the book about eating right for your blood type?  I haven't, but I really hope it doesn't say that rare blood types shouldn't eat tasty things.Most of this entry is superfluous verbiage, but my first answer was deemed too brief to be...

    I don't remember what blood type I have

    but my parents have always told me it's rare. I think it's actually super cool and I love it but if I ever got cancer or needed blood I would be in some trouble because it would be hard to for me. I am not sure if this is a result of my blood type but I have never had a problem...
