I gave blood today for the first time in a long time! Usually my blood floats! But this time it didn't, I don't know if it's because I'm menopausal or because I've been eating my spinach! Anyway, it's such an easy way to do something good and helpful to people. It took about 15 minutes to do the paperwork and the initial blood test and about 6 minutes to fill up the bag with blood. I refused the juice and cookies which was a mistake, because I had a headache for the rest of the afternoon, but I'll be back to normal by tomorrow. You can't give if you weigh less than 115 pounds, but if you're that skinny, I hate you anyway (haha!)!
