NO.
FULL STOP.

I'm sorry, I have a needle phobia too. I just can't bear having it jabbed into me regularly. Jabs (shots) are alright, because I know it's doing me good. *shivers*

Can you not make references to cutting and emos again? I have big problems with stereotypes being associated with certain health problems, especially a serious one like self harm. </sorta-rant>

I can't give blood because I'm iron deficient, though I wish I could. I think giving blood is a great thing to do and I'm sad that a medical condition keeps me from doing it.

Yah my mother is anemic so she can't donate blood either.....

In florida you have to be 16 or older to be able to donate blood and If you are under 18 then you need a parent signature....

My mom would always be ask why I'm always donating blood and when I say its for a good cause... She furrows her eyebrows with skepticism until I say I can be excused form 3 periods of class....then she laughs at me!

But Its good to donate blood (when you can) .. I feel like Im saving someone's life....even though I feel drained and tired after the procedure but Its worth it (at least I think so)

Youre actually not allowed to donate for 12 months after getting a tattoo (or piercing) because some strains of hepatitis take 12 months to show up and if the needles used werent sterilised correctly its a risk of passing on the disease to the recipient, if someone told you 72 hours you need to report them to which ever state you live in's medical board, its false information which could be a public health risk.

I would love to give blood but 14 is too young , I know.. I also don't see why more people donate organs , whats better in your death than giving someone else life? Its also a sure fire way people don't forget you when you die xD


There is a theory which states that if ever
anybody discovers exactly what the Universe
is for and why it is here, it will instantly
disappear and be replaced by something
even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

- Douglas Adams
