    You shouldn't be able to donate blood within three months of each other though.

    Plasma is the only thing they will allow you to donate within weeks of each other.

    donating is good but the vampires will never cease to call you once you're on their list :whistling:

    Did it before, you get free drinks, food, and lots of tasty candies afterwards.

    You also get a comfy sofa to sit in.

    They used to have a thing every year at school here, where seniors can donate blood on campus. I personally hate needles and all that....so weird what if they hit the wrong thing x.x

    @bean, good luck on the surgery I'm sure it will go well

    well its bad if u r ... ehem fat :razz:

    i am a bit over weight and the last time i donated was more than 10 years ago or so when dad was in the hospital. the doctor strapped my arm to make the vein come out or get exposed
    and it just didnt want to coz of my fat skin :razz: so he kept waiting and slapping my arm untill it barely showed and he then stuck the needle haha

    and yeah its not that bad just weird at first

    and good luck with the op mr.bean hope it goes well

    well I'm 5'7, 135 lbs, and basically a walking muscle with heroin veins but I've met nurses who can't get the IV on the first try :confused:

    I have donated blood, but legally I shouldn't be allowed to, hahaha.

    I lie about my weight, so sometimes I do get some real nasty side effects for a day or two (light headed, queasy) but it's all for a good cause!!

    The worst experience i've had with it, was a trainee who couldn't find my vein (they never can), and where usually they then ask for a senior member of staff (who always finds it) this lady just stuck the needle in anyway and started... "rooting around", It was so painful, and I had a massive bruise there for weeks...

    Still, I like to think that maybe my slight discomfort once every few months could potentially save someone's life =)

    Your situation is kinda different though, and I wish you well in your surgery and recovery thereafter!

    Hahaha thanks to you all :smile:
    hopefully my surgery will go well!

    its in 11 days :frown: scareddd

    Hmpf, I haven't, and probably will never donate blood.
    Mainly because I'm dead afraid of needles and they make me faint. :\
  20. Feb 20, 2011

    Deadly afraid of needles too, 3DG you pansy [IMG]
