    Just a random question, do you donate blood?

    I personally never have, because ive heard all the stories about people fainting and shit. I think that its a LARGE amount of blood to give, and I seriously think id either throw up or faint. I get light headed when I have to give blood for blood tests, and thats a small amount!

    I don't even like getting blood test, and I get suspicious of the people that take blood

    Ive never heard of people getting money. My fiance's brother and his girlfriend gave blood recently and they didn't get any money.

    I've never donated. I'm stingy with my blood I guess.

    But when I've had to have my blood taken at the doctors, I like to watch it fill up the vials. It's fascinating.

    I can't donate blood. The medication in my system won't allow me.

    I've done it a couple times.
    They basically give you a free blood screening where they let you know your blood type and if you have AIDS, so there are selfish reasons to give too.
    My type is O negative (universal donor), so I feel obligated to donate more often than I'm usually comfortable with (I'm pretty queasy around needles), but so long as I don't watch the blood being taken, it doesn't bother me.
    They typically take half a liter of blood (the average person has about 5 liters) and the loss of blood has never made me dizzy or lightheaded, but I also tend to take it easy for the rest of the day.

    The thing is, donating blood is just not as fun as donating sperm

    (and on a serious note, yes i have donated once, didn't really like it.)

    Edited : i donated blood, not sperm!

    Same here, nobody wants blood diluted with marijuana resin and liquor.

    I wish I knew my blood type. Last time I was at the hospital and they drew blood, I asked what my blood type was (I was curious) and they said "We don't do that here", I was like WTF, what if I needed a blood transfusion?

    I get nauseous and dizzy really quickly when I get even a little blood taken. After four vials of blood, my lips turn grey and I can't see straight. After 12 vials, I pass out and don't wake up for about 20 minutes. So I don't even want to imagine how I'd feel after having to donate a pint or two of blood. That and I hate being stuck with needles...I always end up with some dolt who stabs me at least five times trying to find a vein and then I want to fuckin' throttle them because I can't stand pain.

    The Red Cross does a great service with blood drives, but they'll never get any blood from me. They can find another B-type donor.

    I've donated blood twice, and I turned out okay both times. No fainting, no throwing up, whatever. My mom used to donate a lot back in the day, but it's left her with collapsable vains (yes, it takes forever for a hospital nurse to find a vain to stick a IV in her), so I'd keep this in mind.

    That being said, it's been about three and a half years between donations for me.

    I am too, although I should probably donate more often. The last time I tried, they wanted me to write down all the countries I'd been to within the past five years, including the exact dates. I couldn't remember, so I left.

    I did donate blood every time they called and asked, but I came down with mono a couple of months back, so I don't think I'll be able to give again for quite awhile.

    when I was in the hospital 4 years ago(which was because of a "seizure" and pt me in a coma) as soon as I woke up I had to do some many test and because I had so many blood samples taken, my body just started to say no and started moving my veins around so I would get stuck various times because it was so damn hard to find a vein and get it.
