Asking Blood and I Cannot
January 6, 2022 3:12am CST
One of my friends is asking for my help and that is to donate my blood. As far as I know, she is undergoing a blood transfusion while being surgically operating her right fractured ankle. I cannot do this because I do not want to see blood. I explained to her the situation and she felt bad for it. Am I a bad friend? Image Credit: clipartstation.com

@Shavkat If that happened to me, it would depend on what I already had planned whether I'd drop them to help her out... I'd guess she is scared and hoping you'd show up as much for comfort to her as for your blood. I could be mistaken but kinda doubt I am.
Giving blood is a donation, it's voluntary so no one should be coerced into doing what is against their will . It's similar to donating an organ like your kidneys. If I were in your shoes and I have hemophobia but honestly care for the person, I would most probably just give money to buy a bag of blood through a blood bank. I don't think she has the right to feel bad since she's the one asking a favor.
