Poll: Do you donate blood? - Page 2Register Today!
- Aug 24, '10 by C_perugiaeI've been told not to; both times I've donated blood, I've passed out afterward. I tried to donate plasma, too, and ended up sick and "out of it" for the rest of the day. After the second blood donation, I was told not to try it anymore.
- Aug 24, '10 by dandk1997RNI *attempt* several times a year. Typically, my HH is too low, but I try anyway- sometimes I get lucky! I'm taking extra iron right now to prep for a drive coming up in about two weeks.
- Aug 25, '10 by sunnycalifRNI donate platelets every month along with 2 units of plasma. 133 donations and counting. (I used to donate blood but they wanted my platelets more!)
- Aug 26, '10 by vamedic4I used to sell my plasma for money during my college years, and now donate whole blood during drives at my employer every 4 months or so? My O neg gets me calls at least once a month from the local blood banks, too.
