Hello raydene, I don't donate blood because I'm scared of needles a.k.a. injections and very very scared of blood. I may sound so sissy but I'm even scared of my own blood, that is why I really am careful in my movements and actions. I don't want want to cause unnecessary accidents that could lead to wounds and the sort. My friends do donate blood during on campus blood dantions by Red Cross at school, they sometimes encourage me or tease me to experience donating but I just tell them I pass. Also, I am very thin, and I think I do not have extra to donate. Someday perhaps I'll be ready to experience helping through blood donation.

They said there are many requirements before you can be able to donate your blood. I think I can't be able to give blood since I am very stress and I always sleep late. If I will be given a chance I want to donate, because as the doctor says, it is healthy to donate blood. I like to help that comes from deep inside me.

I have tried once as my adventure club were donating blood at hospital. But i was denied the reason being my weight was a little bit lower than the requirements at that time. Since then i have not tried or given yet

No, I don't give blood. The few times I tried to when I was younger, the techs were afraid I was dying because I would blanch and my blood pressure would drop almost as soon as they hooked me up. I'd assure them the same thing happened even if I just pricked my finger with a pin but they didn't want any complications, I guess. And now with taking various meds, it's probably not a good idea.
