I know donating blood saves many lives but some people are against it. I wanna ask you if you donate blood. And how do you feel after you've donated

I wish I could! Will be more than happy to do that! I was actually asked several times by my friends to join them but i cannot because of my busy schedule. Hopefully I'll have time to do that very soon.

Yes, I have donated blood before and none after that. Our blood banks need blood for their supply and for those who need it. I feel good after I donated blood because I felt that I was doing something good for those who might need it. My son is regularly donating blood. He always goes to these blood-letting events and have his blood extracted. He does not worry about being extracted blood because the body has the natural tendency to replenish it.

Yes, blood donation doesn't harm us but instead helps others

I think it is a wonderful experience though you feel faint for a little while, ultimately it feels great to be able to do a little something for others. I have done it a few times and would do it willingly every time I am asked to, but it has to be properly done and properly preserved.It is often that roadside camps gather a lot of blood which is not properly stored and gets wasted.I am unwilling to donate in such camps but would do it when properly in a clinic or a hospital and kept in a proper blood bank.

I once planned to donate blood when I was a college stuent about six years ago. Our shcool appealed us to donate blood and I was one of them that answered the call. I passed the physical examination without any troubles. It was kind of exciting. I waited in the queue. When it came to me, the doctor told me she was sorry they didn't need type B any more because the type B blood bank was full then. I felt so disappointed. But they gave me a small heart-shaped gift with a character B printed on as the consolation. After graduation from school. My life became very busy and I ofen felt worn out. I'm afraid the blood donation will affect my working effience. So up until now, I haven't donated blood yet.

At least you came forward to donate blood once. That is a great thing, as for me, I am under aged, so I cannot donate blood

Yes i donate blood as donating blood is serving the human, so I donate blood after every 5-6 months, also donating blood does no harm to our body so it is a good practice to donate blood. It saves the life of people which gives me a satisfaction that I did something for humanity.

Oh i donated blood a month ago. Because my friend please me to do it, and i'm willing so save people lives. Well it was a memorable experience then, A big gauge of needle that goes in to your skin just to get blood is really a sccray thing. It took 5 minutes to 10 minutes to take my blood. Hmmm after taking your blood you should rest a bit, for 10minutes and i didnt do that. I stood up and walked around, then i actually fainted. And my friends got panic, because they don't know what to do. lol. after few minutes i woke up, and asking where i was? And they just laughed at me.

hi,apples! I have donated my blood just for once.I felt thirsty when I had exported 200cc blood,the nurse stopped it after I told her about it.when I got home ,I felt a little faint.but I thoutht it just because I was a little nervous.sure enough,I felt better after lying in bed for a while.I believe it's no a big deal to donate 300cc or 400cc for a health man or woman.and if no one were willing to donate blood,a number of people would die of the shortage of blood resource.what a pity!I think I will donate once again some time later. have a nice day!

You are a very generous person, cathy. I should say you are kind too. 200cc is a lot and I hope it will save someone's life one day
