Who gives blood? :)

Just got called to give some of mine; even though I hate the needle, they say it helps to save lives, and I beleive 'psychological desensibilization' (ex. touching a cat that you fear) is the way to go, so I'm guessing it would help my case.

So I was wondering how much people here takes the time. Thanks!

Noooooo thanks.

They had to give me a small dose of horse tranquilizers to calm me down so they could insert an IV for removing my wisdom teeth.

Re: Who gives blood? :)

its ok to have THC in your system and give blood. I had to run it by the guy running the blood drive he said it was fine that I smoked a little pot I just wanted to get out of class so I did the blood drive back in high school. Liked it so much i did it again when i had the chance

I used to (like 4 years ago) but I haven't because of tattoos... and I don't weigh enough to donate now.

The needle the red cross uses for blood donors is a 14g needle :shock:

**not on this forum and not unless its in a for sale thread.

Re: Who gives blood? :)

I do. Usually only takes 45 minutes out of my time. Red Cross always calls and tells me the names of the people who I helped save.

Get free apple juice and pretzels out of the deal.


I've done it so many times now I don't know when they have inserted the needle. The only thing I hate is taking off the clear duct tape they put on my arm. I rip all my hair off every time. GRR

I mean no hard feelings for what I post on this website. Anything I type/write/post/say on this forum is only that of general debate and discussion. I am not biased toward anyone or anything. I am neutral in everything I do on this website. Only those facts that are presented to me sway my thought process and siding of each discussion topic that I post about.

I used to, O+ here. I haven't in a while, since the last lady poked my arm about 30 times... had to get someone that knew what they were doing and got it in one shot.
