    Default Are you a blood donor?

    Having just come back from donating an armful (thank you Tony Hancock), I thought this might be an interesting question.

    Have once, and probally never again, the process didnt agree with me.
    Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.

    I used to donate regularly, until they looked a little deeper into my med records and discovered I had an allergic reaction to an opiate based pain killer and shut me down straight away. Apparently, there is a slim chance the allergy could be passed on.

    No, probably because im just a wimp.

    Do you have to be in good health to donate? Cause im not usually that healthy (wacked ammune system, but that wouldn't effect blood would it?)

    They are usually very cautious and if there is any doubt, they don't do it. Why not go along and find out?

    Nope, The scientific community have come to the conclusion that mixing Metla blood in with the general population would cause a widespread outbreak in Super humans, Muscle bound warriors with the intelligence of...uh...1000 really clever people, and the charm of a rabies infected 3 legged dog.
