    Donated Blood Today

    I just donated blood this afternoon. Had Lunch at 11:30 Dontated at 12:45 got back in the office at 1:45. If I was smart and came in at 6:30 this morning. I would be able to go home, but I'm stuck here until 5:00. Does anyone else frequently donate blood?

    I'm too young to do it anyway, but even if I wasn't there's no way I'd be able to donate blood... I get sick at any form of knowing that my body is not in its regular state. It's odd, like, I had surgery on my knee recently, and beforehand they were supposed to take blood, but I refused to let them. Umm, so, I had my surgery w/o doing that. After the surgery, like two weeks later, I had to go have my stitches taken out, and when I did just feeling them taking them out of my leg made me sick and I totally passed out. I'm a panzy when it comes to that stuff. I can't count the number of times I've passed out at the doctor's office from something so simple.

    Yup, every time I donate, I make an appointment for the next time, so I don't put it off. That way I donate every 8(?) weeks, and it's all good. I have O+ blood, so mine is very helpful, because it's the only type that any blood type can accept.

    I'm not laughing at you, but it reminds me of the first time I donated. I passed out from the smell, but I got ragged so bad. I had to prove everyone I wasn't scared or faked it, and I have been doing it every since...

    I am also O+

    LOL!!! that is funny. i've always thought you had to upload blood.
    you know, i'm not even sure what me blood type is... have to find out.
    they will tell you when you donate right? i never have before, but i suppose i should.
    i just recently had me locks cut off (went down to the small of me back) and had them donated to cancer kids to make wigs. there is something about giving a part of yourself to somebody else. very taoist.
    just like water off a duck\'s back... I AM HERE.

    for CMOS help, check out my CMOS tut?

    I'm suprised at how few people really donate. I am the ONLY one from my office that donated blood today, and from our conversation at lunch, when I mentioned I will be donating after lunch. I don't think anyone in my office has EVER dontated.
