Do you donate blood? Or did you do it at least once?

I personally do it regularly and if you're not afraid of it, I don't see why you shouldn't do it.

  • I have several times. I actually enjoy it. :) I haven't done it in over a year, though, because I'm very anemic. Sometimes I take iron supplements for 2-3 weeks before my donation and I still don't meet the minimum requirement.

  • I have done it yes. Do I do it now; nope. Real shallow answer too, I just hate needles. I have like an unhealthy phobia of them. I've put off surgeries and other medical procedures just because I didn't want the IV or whatever. Heck I was supposed to have my wisdom teeth pulled for the past 10-years and I just keep putting it off because I know they'll need to IV feed me to put me under for it. Ripping the teeth out doesn't bother me one bit; it's just the needle man.

  • Did it like twice before and always wanted to do it more but my dad wouldn't let me. Now that I'm 18 I'll probably start doing it often when I can.

  • Nah. My older brother donated blood / plasma a lot... and now he looks like a drug addict when he wears short sleeves, the small scar tissue looking like he injects.

    That, and you can't choose who your blood goes to. Maybe your blood goes to help save some poor sap who got t-boned by a drunk driver and would've bled out... maybe your blood goes to help save a thug who was getting into it with a rival gang.

  • No. There have been instances where people would get infected with AIDS or Hepatitis and with my luck - I would most probably be one of those people.
    Medical professionals are still people. It happens.

    • What would you do if you needed a blood transfusion, but there's not enough, because too many people thought they would get infected with HIV or Hepatitis while donating? 😯

    • Lucky for me, not everyone is as paranoid as a child of a doctor. xD

  • I haven't because I can't :( I'm anaemic so doctors wouldn't allow me to do it but I received a blood transfusion once and it probably saved my life so I'm really grateful to all the people who donate blood if they can.

  • I've always wanted to but never been able to.. The first time I tried I was 17 and they had trouble finding a good vein in my arm and gave up saying they didn't have time, had to move on to next person. After that I turned 18 and got my first tattoo. They have laws here that you're not allowed to donate blood if you've been tattooed in the last year, and since I turned 18 I've been tattooed at least once a year, I have 11 tattoos. So I will someday, just haven't been able to yet.
