Donating blood - 1st time

Unread postby decipha » Wed Oct 28, 2015 10:48 pm

so im not one to do needles, i do not like needles one bit, just the thought of a foreign object protruding from my vein is rather unsettling

So the mortuary a fabricated haunted house here at the new orleans cemetaries does a blood drive every year and as a result you get free admission to the haunted house a $20 value and you dont have to wait in the 3+ hour line

my mother and aunt her sis do it every year

this year my mother wanted me to join her, so being the caring person i am i figured it was my civil duty to help out, after all one donation could potentially save 3 people

all went well, took about 7 minutes to fill the bag, about 5 minutes in i got light headed, i finished up and went to get refreshments, my body was shocked and i got very cold, the symptoms were all too familiar, i recognized the early signs from when i lost a significant amount of blood in an almost fatal accident being ran over by a walmart truck in my teens

In any case, i have a great respect for those whom do, i on the other hand am just not cut out to do such, i can now say ive done but unless its life threatening prob wont ever again

Good for you Mike. Not my favorite way to help humanity either. I prefer to participate in benefits and such.
