I’m O positive.
I have never donated cos i fear
that they will reject my blood,
maybe because it’s infected.

I was never able to. You gotta be 110lbs, and I’ve only ever reached this weight recently.

I said no but now I’m having distant memories of me donating blood one time a long time ago.

But I don’t trust my memory.

No, but I want to. I’m O I think, but I don’t know if I’m negative or positive.
Hoping for O- because I have a few loved ones with negative bloodtypes who will need blood and spare organs if their bodies deteriorate further

I’ve given plasma before a long time ago. You make money on plasma donations so I don’t know if that counts as a “donation” or not but I put yes.

Isn’t’ it dangerous to donate blood with all the various meds floating around in our blood stream?

Back home, I was going to donate blood but they said I couldn’t because I was on a AD at the time.

I donated to the Red Cross two or three times, and I donated money for plasma a few times, but then I got a positive for hepatitus, and I couldn’t donate blood any more. That was bad for me, because I could make a decent amount of change donating plasma. I’m pretty sure that I never had hepatitus. You can get a false positive for hepatitus from doing the Haldol decoate thing.

I’ve donated blood many times. They frequently email me or even call me to help out.

O-Negative here so yep.

Tried to sell plasma once but they didn’t like my creatnine levels so they differed me.

I donated once when I was in college. The gal couldn’t get the needle in and poked and poked. Another nurse came along and jammed it in, It all made me sick. I decided, then, that there were other ways for me to be a good citizen.
