    Re: Do you give blood?

    You give your blood to the Red Cross and they sell it to Hospitals! I don't like that too much but I still give. O negative here. 2nd rarest blood and is the Universal blood time. No matter what your blood type is or your RH factor, you can use O-.

    Re: Do you give blood?

    I dont know what blood type I am. I dont mind needles I guess, but makes me feel weird when they stick me! I guess I would donate if someone asked me to, but to take the time to go...Im not sure. Here, I promise the next time a bloodbank or bus comes around I will donate some!

    Re: Do you give blood?

    I'm giving blood every 3 month i'm AB+ so my plasma is universal and i'm lucky one because i can take blood from any type if I come to need it (touch wood!) but it's very important to do so and them you can think that somebody may live thank to your blood working hard in his veins.

    Re: Do you give blood?

    I wish I could donate. I can't because I lived in Europe from 91-94. Something about possible mad cow disease exposure. When I asked how long before the ban is lifted I was told probably never.

    I tried to donate once, but passed out after about 5 minutes. That was the end of my blood donating experiences.

    My last experience wasn't the greatest. They said, you have a nice big vein there. Then it moved on them, they stuck me 4 times in my left arm before finally moving to my right arm and hitting it on the first try.

    Re: Do you give blood?

    I have donated plasma in the past (everyone remember those flat broke days of early adulthood?), but it's actually against my beliefs to accept blood transfusions, and therefore also donating blood. Though I have to say I understand those who are totally for it.
    I have two very rare photographs. One is a picture of Houdini locking his keys in his car........

    BTW no I'm not a Christian Science person, a Jehovahs Witness, or a Mormon, just to cover those bases.

    Re: Do you give blood?

    I live in Cali and can't...you gotta weigh at least 110

    I did when I was in Florida for work though, b/c you can give less depending on how much you weigh
