Hope she gets better Adie. I donate every 3 months. Been doing it since I can't remember but there was a big gap in between. It's a good feeling knowing what your doing I'd not just helping someone but probably saving their life :thumbsup:

So get onto it if you have never done it before. The needle don't hurt - I honestly think its just a numb warm feeling - and everyone at the Red Cross is all smiles and professional. Like my fellow fat bastards have said - get a feed od sausage rolls and milkshake etc afterwards. Plus all the candy you can pocket :nod:

Hold off on the beer the nite before though - not only will you be dehydrated but you might be adding "extra" unwanted value :roflmbo:

Nurses at blood banks have to be good. If they weren't people may have a bad experience and never go again.

giving blood is a great thing and only takes a little time.

I've had to delay my donation, but for good reason. Have to go have a blood test to see if I'm a compatible bone marrow donor for my sister.

Blood test + donation too close together would brig back my anaemia :(

Was hoping everyone who donates could do my sister a favour...shes putting together some photo collage thing of people donating, so if you happen to be in there can you get a photo of yourself giving the thumbs up, while donating?

Cheers.
