No Need To Be Kind, I Failed To Give Blood Today

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.
