As I mentioned in my last post, there was a blood drive at my office today. I signed up with every intention of giving blood, but I failed. The good news is that they didn’t even stick me this time. The nurse who was taking my information rejected me. It’s probably just as well because I was feeling really shaky and probably would have passed out when they stuck me. But, I still feel like a failure.
I really feel like, and think, giving blood is something that every able bodied adult should do. Not a day goes by without some kind of emergency where the hospitals can use it. In theory, it is an easy way that anyone can help save a life. I am now zero for four in my attempts, though. I guess I’ll have to find some other way to make a difference.
