I did it, I gave blood! *potentially triggering picture of old scars*

On Friday I did something I am soooo proud of. Despite being nervous around needles, I did something I have been meaning to do for years and gave blood. It was pretty bad but I am going again in 3 months. I hope my blood saves somebody!

Photo evidence!

  1. Good for you! I want to work up to doing that but even blood tests make me pass out 😦 xx

    I gave blood once, but now I can’t due to an iron disorder I have, they will take it but wont use it, so I just keep it now.

  3. Big step forward! Gain strength from what you have done and use it to make more progress. 🙂

  4. Cool. I sometimes wish I could give blood. *sigh* it’s such a good deed to do . x

    1. How come you can’t? x

      1. medication and weight I think. S went to give blood and couldn’t because she’s on meds, and I can’t because my weight is too low as well. 😦 xx

      2. 😦 . I’m only on Escitalpram now and that was fine, although they did ask about my scars and whether they were done with a clean razor!! Awkward.com!

      3. The stupid thing is, I can say all this positive stuff about being healthy etc, but the immediate thought that ran through my head when I read you comment was ‘Wish I was too thin to give blood’. Gah. Guess this isn’t going to be an easy road to change my head as well as my body…
