I am going to sign up to donate plasma, and wondered if there are any experienced plasma donors out there? What should I expect? I have already heard that when the blood goes back into your body it feels really wierd. I would like more info, please...

I've donated plasma and its really not that big of a deal...you basically sit in a chair for about 90 minutes. Interesting that you mention that the blood real weird when it goes back into your body...I found this to be true as well and a nurse told me that its just because the temperature of the blood is reduced a bit, so its just the fact that the blood is returning chilled a bit. Anyway, I found a ton of good information on the whole plasma donation process and where to donate here: http://bloodbanker.com
