    I'm giving blood for the first time on Sunday.

    And I'm feeling really good about myself for it.

    Aparently if you go out on the lash after giving blood, you can get pissed reeeeaaaalllllyyyy quickly :teeth:

    man i have been meaning to do this for such a long time. they test your blood and let you know if they find anything dodgy. even that is reason enough to do it.

    I do it often, must have given about 15 or 20 pints in the past. I have a rare blood group so its good to do it, plus if you give blood your body has to regenerate more, and so its healthy for your immune system.

    I used to give platelets but mine aren't 'harvestable' any longer so I have go back to whole blood. It's pretty rewarding.

    I've done this. Somebody in my family was in a car accident and needed a transfusion but they have a funny blood type and they didn't have the right blood in the hospital. So, they had to wait for it to be rushed down in an ambulance from some university somewhere. She was fine in the end but it was a real nailbiter and I'd rather other people didn't have to go through that.

    Anyways, I don't have the same blood type but the whole experience was enough for me to stay sober for 2 weeks so they could siphon off a bit of my blood.

    Didn't really enjoy it that much, but it's not unpleasant or painful or anything.

    I wish I could.

    I'm cool with needles, i'm fine with bleeding & with other peoples blood.

    Just the physical process of having blood removed from my body, sends me into a spiral of passing out, followed by vomitting, migrane & turning various shades of green.

    Bleak.

    this may be a silly question but can u still give blood if yours is infested with thc?
    would they still want it?
    we can give blood at work, ive always wanted to even if its just to escape the office for an hour but not sure if they would find mine of any use to anyone!

    All they said to me was no drugs or alcohol, so the weed went an' all :(

    However I'm pretty sure THC stays dissolved in your fat lipids and gets released constantly and slowly over time, so 2 weeks wouldn't help much. Guessing you can probably blaze.

    No way I could do this. I hate needles, I hate seeing blood coming out of people, and see it go up a bloody tube?!?!

    Urgh I'm like moskit. I'd be sick on someone.
