I did for years as a teen-ager and college student. Then when I got in my 30's I went to donate and they found I had tainted blood platlets. This would never have been discovered if they had not tested the blood. I feel bad that I can not give blood now.

I would as well but I have problems when they go to take it. If I go to the blood mobile they can never get the vein. They use those new velcro bands and it won't work on me. They need to use the old elastic style bands and it will work, however to do that I have to go to the main office. I often to forget to go there because it's way out of my way.

Thats just wonderful. I wish that i could but i have high blood pressure and they dont think its good to do it. Giving blood saves alot of lives and the hospitals need it. Giving back to life is good and even if you have not accomplished anything you have still given back to siciety. Make sure you remember to go on Wednesday and ,yes, your daughter will keep you company.

I can't because they won't let you donate blood around here if you have gotten a tattoo in the last 12 months (and I always get one tattoo a year, at least :P)
