..... and giving blood. I know, I know, I know, that there are thousands of others out there who give blood on a regular basis. The thing is, that I have always, always wanted to give blood but when it came down to it, I just chickened out. Now the thing is, I'm not scared of blood or needles, I was irrationally worried that they would test my blood and then turn round and tell me that I was going to die due to this, that, and the other. Anyway, as I came home from town today, there was this big GIVE BLOOD lorry outside my local community centre and I thought "what the hell" and just went inside (the community centre, not the lorry) and did it. It wasn't traumatic at all and I'm so so so pleased with myself. I know that giving blood is all about helping other people but knowing that makes me feel good about myself. As Joey said on "Friends" .... there are no selfless good deeds!!
