i have gotten a form for blood donation for tomorrow... since i am under 18, it is cumpulsory for me to take the consent form... sad... just a few more months before i turn 18!!! i think these rules are good, but it is rather troublesome!!! anyway... so do you think you will like to donate blood? and if you did, was it painful?!?!? tell me soon please!!! hopefully before tomorrow!!!

Well, I have tried so many times to donate blood. But the problem is I have a low blood pressure. Its not actually that low since it is still considered okay. But unfortunately, they always tell me that they could not get blood from me unless my BP reaches 120/80. Fact is my highest blood pressure is 110/70 and on the average its 100/80. I keep explaining that its okay but I guess they have this policy to take blood only when the BP is on the 120/80 range.

Hello,raclie! blood donation is good for you.you are doing noble work,as your blood would save a man's life.once i had the occasion to donate blood but i felt sick before the process was completed.i felt head reeling and vomiting.so the doctor in-charge of collecting blood stopped and advised me not to venture for the said purpose in future.since then i have not donated blood.thanx.

wow... that was what i am scared of... being so scared that i will vomit and have to stop donating blood before it is completed... i mean, i guess it is ok, but when i help someone, i want to help them the whole way!!! so i guess i will have to wait till tomorrow to find out!!! thanks for the response!!
