Never have. I like to avoid needles.
I chose "not suitable for transfusion". I'm not sure if that's entirely accurate, but I am on anti-seizure medication and I'm hypoglycemic. I'd really like to donate blood but I don't know if I can because of that.
Also, because of my hypoglycemia (and vagal response), I pass out when they draw blood samples. I don't know if my system could survive whole units.
-sj loves kevin spacey
No - I pass out at the sight of blood
No, bisexuals are defered from donating blood.
no for four reasons
-i have an iron deficiency
-i'm afraid of needles...
-i'm too young
-i don't weigh enough
EDIT: i also take a substantial amount of flak about the fact that i don't and probably never will...
No, but I plan to donate some in the future.
No i haven't but i do want to. But i think i need to be a year older before i can do that. Either way when i'm old enough to do so i certainly will.
I'm too young, but I wouldn't mind when i'm older.
If the donation age in Canada is 17, then I will be soon.
Not interested at all.
No, I'm not interested in donating blood.
Probably not; needles freak me out.
Yep, regularly, but sometimes I get ill right before I can go again, it's not up to four times a year, which would be the maximum in Germany.
I can't, unfortunately. I'm anemic, which means I can't. I would though. My dad's donated for years (he's O-).
I last donated in June and can do it again in August. I think it's such a rewarding thing.
A couple times. I just did yesterday, in fact.
More than 3 times a year! In the US you can donate platelets every 7 days and I try
and go as often as I am able. Packed red cells it's a few weeks in between donations so I don't do those as much.
I've been rejected every time I tried, due to high blood pressure, low iron and flu. But I'll keep on trying. Someday I'll break them.
I've donated a few times but the last two times I was lightheaded and dizzy. The floor is your friend.
I've been rejected a few times because of anemia, but I just have to eat right on the day of the donation and I can pull it off.
What disappoints me is that there's a blood drive for the release of Stephenie Meyer's Breaking Dawn and it's 5 days before I can donate blood again.
No but I plan to in the future.
I tend to pass out, so I've avoided giving blood.
