Yeah. I've got a blue card, beyatches.

Enjoy mate, it's not as bad as anyone says it is. Although after the first occasion, I recommend if you go back for a second time to leave the establishment with haste. If you do so quickly enough, you'll get a nice head rush. Do not do this on the first occasion though in case your body reacts badly to withdrawing blood.

Nah, they don't care about that I do believe. You'll see what they do mind though as you have to do this questionnaire which is basically ticking mostly nos. You'll see what they don't like there.

i was planning to, but my piercings are too recent

i would like to though, it's nice to share
#10
I do it everytime they drop by here. I always **** myself when the needle is about to go in but it's worth it to help people but mostly for the biscuit
#11
My whole family used to (except me - underage) but my mum can't cuz of pills she takes now, my sister can't cuz of being underweight, and my dad can't because of malaria.
Picky bastards
Have you checked that you're within their guidelines, I heard they're quite strict..
Hey Meg.
Proud of you.

How is this possible? The English are bloodless, soulless monsters.

I've done it multiple times in Canada.

Hospitals really need it, I did part of my Paramedic training when we had a shortage, and saline/hextend=/=a proper blood replacement.

I tried to give blood, but my housemate had been ill a few weeks before, and they decided it was too risky.


Just because he has no immune system, doesn't make me a sickly child too.

I don't think I'll ever give blood just like that.


I give my mind, ideas and physical effort to other people - giving bodily fluids is a bit over the line for me.
#17
I went to town with the intention of doing it once.

By the time I had made my way from the train station and up New Street to the place, I had raged to the point I couldn't be bothered (mainly due to people walking without due care and attention).

I think if I had gone in, the blood would've squirted out like a hose, such would be my blood pressure.

However, I still have the intention of doing it at some point.
#18
Good for you, buy yourself some cookies, or donuts to eat after your first time giving blood to celebrate. Really, it's recommended.

Yeah, I know - one day I'll be lying on a bed needing blood, and I'll see a mirror image of myself walking by with my bloodtype but too much selfishness to give some to me.


Eh, it's just something I have a problem with.
#23

In fact, it's kind of the point where you decide what your body is to you.

It's not an emergency situation where your little brother needs one of your kidneys or anything.


Is blood a fundamental part of your personal body, or a commodity for human minds to exchange with one another to continue their mutual existence?

I know some folks that just can't do it. It's not that big a deal though.

I've got a good friend of mine who commonly receives blood transfusions as if she doesn't, she'll pretty much die. Receiving them is an essential part of her health.

You don't need all the blood that is in your body while it is healthy, so why not donate it?

I would if i had the chance, say a blood drive or something.
#30
Yeah, i'm a regular as well. You get a free cup of tea and a biscuit!

All that people worry about is when they stick the needle in, but that only takes like half a second and is tiny sting, you cant really feel it when its in there, not even when they pull it out.

It's really not scary at all and you get a great sense of acheivement afterwards. Plus you can brag to people (girls) that you give blood.

I probably should. I've been over age for a few months, quite a few of my friends have done it, and all I have to do is go up town. Yet for some reason i'm still here ... i'll pretty much force myself to do it someday.
#32
wow a fair few people have given blood
i want to get a few of my mates to come down with me but they will think i am crazy and wont give any =/ worth a try

They won't let me I had to receive blood when I was about 8, and there's something about if you've received blood after a certain date you can't give it.

I've done it once, was definitely worth doing. Going back again in October.

Yes, I'm a regular donor with a red card.

When you do this for the first time, you go in and fill in a personal details form and then you'll be given a questionnaire to fill in and a folder containing information. After you fill that in and hand it back to the desk, you'll then see a nurse who'll go through your questionnaire and if you've ticked a 'yes' to a question, ask you to clarify it. I had to clarify my diabetes with them as I'm on medication for this. They'll then test your blood with a fingerprick test (which doesn't hurt that much).

You then wait until a bed is free and a nurse will come and get you. You then get taken to a bed which you'll lie on, and they'll ask you if you're OK and if you're nervy/scared, give you a local anaesthetic to numb the arm. Then they'll put the needle in and attach it, firstly to test tubes for blood typing and disease testing, and then to the bag which collects the blood. You'll be asked to keep pumping your arm to get the blood flowing.

After 10 min or so you should be done and they'll usually give you a few minutes to just get your bearings back, and also to dress your needled arm.

They'll then usually ask that you have a drink and biscuits, and I got a free keyring and one of those pom-pom things to stick on a surface.

You'll feel funny for a few hours but it's worth it.
