Today there was a blood drive at my school, and I signed up and gave blood. I was just wondering what other UG'ers have ever given blood.

Also I searched real quick and didn't see anything.

I haven't, but I've always meant to. I'm 20 years old and my blood type is undocumented. It'd be nice to figure that out. They should tell you your type when you do it.

I donate at every chance. I have type O+, which is apparently somewhat in need around here.

A buddy of mine had to go through cancer treatment and blood transfusions saved his life on a few occasions.

I'm English, living in Australia. Hence, they think I have mad cow disease or foot-and-mouth, so I'm not allowed. Considering how critically short of blood they are, you'd think they'd test to see if you had mad cow disease or something

Yea, I'm 16. I had to get a conscent form signed. And they do give you your blood type in the mail after you donate. 6-8 weeks I think they said.

Edit: They didn't ask any drug or alcohol questions, only about sharing needles, going out of the U.S., and sex.

I had a blood test to assess whether or not I was eligible to give blood and the levels of THC in my bloodstream combined with my slight anemia meant that I wasn't allowed to actually donate any blood...

Gave it twice just to get out of school, but I don't anymore, just cause it's boring.

They had a lot of questions on the pre-test thing about going to Europe, but a bunch specifically talking about visiting or living in England. They told us it was because of the mad cow, like you said.

Yeah, I passed on an opportunity to give blood because I was hung over, and therefore probably had pretty good level of alcohol in my blood. The lady came up to me and asked me if I'd be willing to donate and I said "you don't want my blood" and walked by. In hindsight it was probably not the best thing to say because I think she thought i had TEH AIDZ or something.

Sadly there are still some old prejudices woven into our collective medical systems.

I took a day off because my first and only blood test scared me that much. I want to but I don't know if I can. Also you have to wait for a few months to pass by after tats or piercings.

I did two days ago. Really easy to do, just lie back and relax. AND i got chocolate!

Never have, but i would. However, on my last blood test, it took the person ages to find a vein, so i could be waiting a while even if i did.

Lucky bastard. All they gave us was orange juice, water bottles, and pretzles. They were out of cookies when I got done

I've given three times, but Red Cross kept calling and it got a little annoying. So I went to Africa this summer and when I got back they called again and when I told them I'd been to Africa they were like, "Have a nice life!" and that was that

Our school donated a ton. They'll probably say how many units tomorrow, but I do know that there wasn't enough time in the school day to get everyone. The red cross people say that we donate the most in the area.

Yeah, that's the same reason my Mum can't give blood any more

I do though, regularly. It makes me feel good about myself

i love giving blood. it makes me feel good to know that my contributions could possibly help someone in the future. its a very good thing to do. i do it every chance i get
#36
Always. Being O-, they pester me whenever there's a blood drive going on.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.
#37
I give blood. You get free food and drinks and a cool bandage to wear, plus it saves lives. Why not? And I'm O- as well, so its always in need.
