the vampire diaries

Dear Diary, Today I visited the World of the Vampire. And they promptly turned me away. Your blood is not good enough, they said, making me feel like a complete and utter failure. I wasn't sure whether to feel relieved or tearful. I'd psyched myself up to donate my valuable red stuff for the first time ever, and they practically threw me out of the building. I made that last bit up. My haemoglobin level is too low. It needed to be at least 125 and mine just scrapped into the normal range at 115. So leave I did, tail between my legs. I am allowed to try again in three months though, so I will have to psych myself up once again. I am a failure. A tired and sleepy blood-keeping failure. Ho-hum.

At least you tried. I donated regularly, but once I got past 60 they didn't want it any more.

@Poppylicious Really - perhaps they've changed their policy.

I get the impression that you have to be very special before they like your blood!

@Poppylicious I completely agree but not even mosquitos like my blood

I wonder if they would like my blood, for sure the "small vampires" (mosquitoes) love my blood a lot. Even too much.

If we got all the mosquitos together and retrieved all the blood, I wonder how many lives we would be able to save!? Random thoughts ...!

@Poppylicious That would be something to consider, because there are so many around.

I hate blood suckers like mosquitoes etc. I have never given blood before, I get faint when I have blood tests

Me too. I felt really sad and deflated when I found out I would have to wait.
