I gave blood today. And have the sticker to prove it! Twas only the second time ive ever done it so it still gets me excited :D
My friend donated for the first time and managed to get dizzy and went very white and was put into the recovery position. Typical!

    *shudders* i had blood taken yesterday, i hate it! Well done you though!

    Well done! Good for you - you should feel proud of yourself. :)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I used to be sooo brave around needles (voluntered many a time to be the first one to get injections in school :lol: ).
    But now it's icky.. I don't feel much but it's just icky! So yes, I'm scared of donating blood. :(

    My dad did once or twice though.. they kept pestering him about returning for a year when they gave up (I think, perhaps they started emailing him instead).

    I wanna be a sperm donor - that sounds much more fun tbh, and you get paid money!

    I'm impressed :) well done faerie. I'd like to give blood too, but I'm too scared! Maybe when I'm a grown-up and I'm big and brave...

    Yeah how much is it? Not for me obviously. :)

    I'm going to donate blood as soon as I am old enough :) not that my blood would be overly appreciated, I'm just a common O:(

    theyre pretty picky who they take blood from, not everyone can do it.

    Not in britain they don't.

    However, if you're female and give eggs, they give you up to £8,000.

    Anyways - there's a possibility that a little (half) you would be running around in a couple of year time. Wouldn't that make you think twice before donating?

    But, yes. I'm going to give blood in August, i really want to but can't before then - i had a piercing done at Reading last year and you have to wait a whole year before giving blood in case you got something.

    I swear that it is possible to undergo medical experimentation in return for money.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    yeah, it is, but i think sperm donation (as in 'here, create little people out of my DNA') doesn't get paid for over here, though in the USA they get about $15 for it.

    It is because my biology teacher told us that in uni most men live off the money! - its very well paid something like £50 a time ;)

    My bio teacher also said he could never do it as he may be talking to someone some day who is his little version ewww:p

    :lol: That was my mates excuse for not giving blood! He said his pint would end up like a pint of guinness- straight from his veins would ooze a tar black liquid (from all the fags) with a head and a similar alcohol content. I think i'd have to agree with him.
