Blood  

Any doners onboard?

If not, why not?

I've tried. They don't like my blood.. Too anemic.

You know they are doing field research studies now on a synthetic blood called Poly-Heme. If it works, blood donation could become a thing of the past.

Re: Blood new [re: Strawman]  

The first time I donated blood, it was GREAT! And I mean great. I had a good friend with me who was making me laugh, the cookies were great afterwards. No sickness, dizziness, or nausea. I was so happy to do it too. BUT, the second time I did it, it was just horrendous. I nearly passed out three times, I had to breath with a paper back over my face, the needle hurt like a bitch due to the roughness of the nurse, and I was dizzy, weak, and blacking out for two days afterwards. It was truly traumatizing. I get a severely gross feeling when I think of donating again, so I've told the Red Cross to take me off of their list. On the one hand, I feel bad, but on the other hand, I can't even imagine getting blood taken from me ever again, at least until my memory of the last donation goes away.

I did get my sister to go and donate though, and she enjoyed it, so she'll be donating again in my stead.

Nope. I would like to but apart from low blood pressure they refused to take my blood because they think i have a higher risk of catching whatever. which is nonsense. but as long as they tell me that nonsense they probably have enough anyway. as long as i get my share when i need it, it really doesn't matter to me anyway.

Are you bad enough?

I would willingly give blood, but alas I cannot as a teenager I had kidney failure and jaundice plus glandular fever, but I am always urging people to give blood.

Being ill and spending so much time in hospital is what made me chose my career.

Re: Blood new [re: Strawman]  

I gave several times many years ago but it was such a hassle......I have small veins and the nurses have trouble getting the needle in, plus I end up with a big bruise and a sore arm for several days afterwards. I have also felt sick and dizzy a few times.

So I decided it wasn't worth it in the end, though I would have continued to donate if I didn't have any problems.

Something in my veins ... bloodier than blood new [re: Strawman]  

Thank you for reminding me. I've hit the 5-years-past-cancer mark, and may resume extracting my B+ nectar.



what's the point of cracking up all because of shepherd's pie?

No, i'm not a donor. Not only do I not live in an area where you can't donate blood, but I faint ridiculously fast at that sort of thing (have fainted in doctor's surgeries when they've taken out splinters before!). I wouldn't mind giving blood but I'm not going to put myself through the hassle.

It's okay people, I've never donated blood either - Fuck that for a bowl of strawberries! Besides, my blood spends most of its time en route to my hampton, of which I shall be posting a photo of here later.

Be warned -- It'll be a board stretcher.
