Need Not Apply.

i gave blood once at a blood drive at work. they have blood drives every few months. but shortly after i gave for the first time i developed a fever, which i've now had for a year. i went on the internet and read the red cross's rules for giving blood. they don't want mine. rather than being turned away at the door, i haven't tried to give again. i hope that one bag they got out of me has done somebody some good.

not quite ok yet, but hopefully on my way there ;)

That is scary. Thank goodness you are OK now!

no, i've been tested for all that stuff. i think it just happened to be close in time.

OH MY! Was there somehow some cross-contamination with the needle? Should that even be possible?
