    Just wondering if there were any other blood donators out there. Just got back from the company blood drive, they had to try both arms today....I'm sore. But I managed to give so I'm happy about that

    I've sold plasma when times were tough, but never donated. I'm probably to much of a chubby slob to be worthwhile. Now, if I had some O Negative to hand out....I'd consider.

    LOL. Have not been able to. When I was younger I was too young, or too light. Then recently I was with baby... now I am just too busy. I should next time they do at work.

    Re: Do you give blood?

    I've thought about it but one of several problems is that I'm on several medications due to my disability. I am also anemic (been on iron pills once before as a teen, came off of them, and my levels dropped again. Last year I had to go back on them never to come off them again) and had a transfusion last year while I was in the hospital with a bad wound and urinary tract infection. I am not sure I can donate now. I don't have Sickle Cell Anemia, just plain iron deficiency anemia.

    I'm not certain if they allow persons who have received a transfusion to donate or not
