Exactly. They’ve stopped the mobile clinics here in Canada too and that’s where most of the donations come from.
I donated "power red" the last time and it kicked my ass! I am not in the shape I used to be.
They should have frozen it , but they are ones to waste , buy new machines because it has cup holders , while the older model still works , then ask Government for money and charge $3000 for an aspirin. Sorry , medical community are not heroes tom me. More like parasites.
@KrakenAttackin I guess because it is taking 2x the amount of red blood cells out of your body. It’s a massive depletion in oxygen levels until you start regenerating cells. I’ve never donated blood but yeah, it can tire you out I’m sure.
@888thegreat I don’t know what point you’re trying to make there. Machines? The only machines used are the rockers that keep the bags moving at all times, to keep the blood from coagulating. Frozen blood really is not useful for transfusions because it weakens the cells, and it’s not an efficient way to store it. The healthcare system in the US is all about money and insurance which is why you have all these problems in the first place.Good to know that you think so little of medical professionals. You’re talking to the wrong person about this. My parents are doctors and my brother is a paramedic, and they are working harder than ever right now. What would you say about them if you needed medical attention?
In the Trump era, everything is political.
@RolandCuthbert It’s such fucking three ring circus there, it’s not even funny. It’s a circus with Pennywise as the ringmaster.

Liberals use crisis to get stuff , like paying for sex changes and now wanting the Federal Government to bail them out.
Ah. You have it backwards. What liberals do is dwell on reality when conservatives actively neglect it. A crisis is just what happens when reality is neglected too long. Sort of like if you closed your eyes while driving. You can get by on what you imagine the car is doing for a little bit, but eventually the choices are open your eyes or crash. We are mid-crash, here, and the reason it seems like people are getting "stuff" is because getting back on track is extremely expensive after a wreck as impressively bad as what the trump administration has done.
You know he got the numbers switched around.
@RolandCuthbert That would be comforting to know.
Because it’s not true lol
