I can't say I've noticed that u can literally feel the blood draining out of u... it is kinda cool watching the bag fill up with blood tho heh heh.

The only thing u can feel is the needle in ur arm and it kinda starts to hurt once its been in there a while. I actually have these like tiny scars at the point where the needle goes in.
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.

seriously, i have a problem with it! everytime i've had to have a blood test i lie there thinking, right, don't be ridiculous, it's ok.. but as soon as they put the needle in i pass out!! they even called the emergency team once cos they thought i'd gone into shock!
Funnily enough, i don't seem to have the same problem with injections.. Weird huh?

That can't be nice...

Maybe it's because with an injection they're putting something in, not taking something out?

Loopy, we're both weird, then - I can feel myself going faint just thinking about having blood taken...Yet I don't mind injections, either!

Luckily, I had a serious illness as a child, so I don't have to feel guilty about being too much of a wuss to give blood now! Phew...!

It's on my list to starting getting my blood tested from 2005 onwards. I don't even know my blood type! And considering diabetes and heart conditions run through my fathers side of the family tree, it really should have been prioritised a long time ago. So, no, I don't give blood.
