Big AL Darn Sarf, United Kingdom Posts: 2,573 Speed Triple 955i (99-01) 16 Feb 2012 23:21 Well I did last night for the first time
http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q133/... After my little lad needing, several transfusions last year , Nurses all said the best thing you / your family can do is give blood. Bugger all to it , Just a little prick Took 7 mins to fill the pint pot ? Mine must be watered down or something ! I hate needles, so couldnt watch that bit .. Should have done it years ago really, sat in waiting room chatting to an old boy who was on his 86 th donation ps .. why did they tape a fag butt on my arm after ???

Koro Severn Valley, United Kingdom Premier Member Posts: 2,558 Speed Triple T309 17 Feb 2012 07:36 I got up to 25, then had to stop due to a serious illness that needed a transfusion. Its a great thing to do

I think you need to go back and check . They started taking blood from people who had previous had jaundice years ago. They ask you a load of questions and you sign a declaration - none of which ask if you had jaundice previously, so you're fine to start donating

ONCE I'VE FINISHED WITH IT
speedyian Northants, United Kingdom Premier Member Posts: 1,368 Sprint ST (05->) 17 Feb 2012 19:58 There's a coincidence. I gave donation No 74 today and apparently for No 75 I get another badge, another certificate, a different colour card (its gold at the moment) and a nice wall plate.
RuthKat Swindon Wiltshire, United Kingdom Posts: 107 Speed Triple 955i (02-04) 17 Feb 2012 20:00 I would really like to give blood but I am terrified of needles.... and im not talking about just a bit squeamish...
Last time I HAD to have a blood test, people had to hold me down
