Blood donation
A blood donation occurs when a healthy person voluntarily has blood drawn and used for transfusions or made into medications by a process called fractionation. In the developed world, most blood donors are unpaid volunteers who give blood for a community supply. In poorer countries, established supplies are limited and donors usually give blood when family or friends need a transfusion.

Well. Actually not done. I'm not eligible to give blood unless I don't have sex with my husband for three months - because he once had sex with another man, like 13 years ago. So. Yeah.

I became a blood donor a few years ago and have just donated my 19th pint. It's something that I spent way too long thinking about before I actually did it and to anyone who's 'thinking about it' just do it. It doesn't hurt, it's easy, you get free biscuits, or crisps, orange squash (or a hot drink) and damn it feels good to know that you might just have helped to save a life.

I went to give blood on Monday January 8th for the first time. However, my iron level wasn't high enough and I wasn't allowed to. The nurse told me that I will be allowed to try again on March 5. I hope it will work out next time !

Are you supposed to know your blood type first?

I'm not currently allowed to give blood in America because I lived in England for more than 3 months (I was actually born in England and Immigrated to America a few years ago) 😭😭
There was a mad cow disease break out in England and at this moment in time, you have to be dead and have a section of your brain removed to be tested to see if you carry it. So, until there is a screening for it for the living, I can't donate here.
While I'm a bit gutted, I'm happy I at least tried!

So it's been a while since my first donation! I just came back from Japan where I had lots of meat, fish and tofu so figured my iron levels would be good right now and I could take advantage of it. They were - 131 grams of haemoglobin per litre. My blood pressure was 135/87 and my heart rate was 94 (a bit nervous again). This chocolate milk was my reward, along with one of their famous cookies, a small milkshake and a keyring with my blood type (O+) on it.
