Do you donate blood?

Postby sparkly_star » Sat Dec 18, 2004 6:21 pm

I just remembered this one....

Who here donates blood?
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

It's recommended that as a pilot, I don't donate blood. So nope, I don't.
Remember how the runway lights looked one night long ago when you were lost and found your way, and how-you still dont know?

I've tried to donate blood twice since I turned 17 and both times I couldn't.

The first time I was told that I couldn't donate blood because I was anaemic. That was how I found out I was anaemic. If I hadn't have gone to that blood session, I would never have found out. LOL.

The second time, I had a fresh wound on my arm and they said that I couldn't donate for a year, because the wound looked infected, and they didnt want to risk it.

Third time lucky, eh?
