have you ever donated blood? i know some of you might be to young to donate but in the future when you are able do you think you will?

i have, even though i have a major fear of needles. its not actually as bad as i thought it was going to be. the only bad part was i was dizzy the rest of the day and kept having to sit/lay down.

I don't mind needles at all and I actually find it fascinating to watch blood being taken out. Which is weird, but I suppose it's a good thing for the person who gets my blood. Anyways I haven't donated blood yet, but next year when my school has their annual blood drive I'm pretty sure I'll sign up. Besides saving a life you also miss class time! That sounds like a win win situation to me.

I actually have really small veins, so it's always hard to get any blood out of me.. xD; so nah, I've never donated blood. One time I tried to, but apparently they couldn't let me do it, because I take a bunch of allergy meds. If you have any medication in your bloodstream then it's a no-go.

I haven't though I would. Every time it comes up I think about doing it, but can't for one reason or another.

The last time I could have I was riding my bike home and it would have been a bad idea to try that while dizzy from blood loss.

Yep.

I do rather often. I am O-, meaning I am a universal donator.

Fun times.

Try driving or getting someone to drive you |D

also how do you know it's three hours if you've never done it :o

Also no, my blood is mine and if someone else had it it'd be creepy 8|

I would like to donate blood, but I rarely get a chance.
Besides, I have fear of needles..and blood.

I haven't since I don't like needles and I believe I'm still under the minimum weight you have to be to donate blood. The minimum weight is somewhere around 120 pounds and I'm only about 110.

I don't donate blood. ><; I'm fine with needles, normally, but for some reason I really don't do well with having blood drawn. D: I've yet to outright faint but I come very close to it each time. When I get blood drawn at the doctor's (or the few times at the hospital) they've always made me stick around for 15 minutes to watch me closely, haha. So that makes me... very hesitant to donate. I'd like to, just for the sake of donating blood, but I don't know if I could willingly go get blood drawn even for a reason like that. :(

I would, but I have a pretty bad phobia of blood. The sight of it makes me sick... :/

I am to young to donate blood. But, when I am older I will.

I want to, but I'm too young and I'm scared of what's going to happen to me afterwards. XD;

I don't even know my blood type.

But I did check 'organ donor' on my license. I mean, if I die, I won't be using them. ;3
