Do you give blood?
Simply put, just wondering who gives blood here and if you don't why not?

Also, blood types if you know yours. Can I give a big shout out to the O+'s?

Once or twice a year depending on how much of it I can spare.

RE: Do you give blood?
I used to give blood for years but due to a recent medical condition I had to stop. If I can, I hope to give blood again some day. I makes me feel good to do it and as Hitchens used to say "it's something you can give of yourself that helps people and costs it you nothing in return."

A positive.

RE: Do you give blood?
Yes, and platelets as well
this is on demand. They told me I have a certain rare substance in my blood which makes it useful against certain types of leukaemia.
How cool is that Smile

RE: Do you give blood?
I give, it's a win / win kinda thing.

Shy I don't remember my type -it's on my last card, wherever that is.

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

I don't but I do wish I could. Needles are just not something I can handle. I've tried though.

dude.... needles are nothing... just don't think about it...

everytime I get pricked... for a blood test or donation... just think about other things.. somthing positive that brings a smile to your face.... past good times with family... or you can think about whatever... seriously ... man the fuck up.. it's just a needle .. they not cuttting off your arm or anything... just a pin prick.. it's all in the mind really. If you convince yerself that the needle posses no threat... you can overcome it.. Just think that your superior to that needle.. your in control.

Your a beast ... you've got the balls or what? now get yer ass down there and let them suck you dry of blood damnit! Move it... someone's life is depending on it!
