Giving Blood

Posted on: November 4, 2009

Since today’s blog from our series can not be found, I’m going to talk about giving blood.

Which I am doing this afternoon.

Which despite having done it before makes me a little nervous. Even though it doesn’t hurt that much. Even though it’s perfectly safe. Even though I have had no adverse effects from passing out (which is mostly uncommon).

Still – it’s a little nerve wracking. But the benefits outweigh the risk. I’m an O Positive blood type, which is a pretty good blood type to have in my opinion. And you save three lives. I always think about if I was injured or needed transfusions or someone I love was injured or needed transfusions that there would be blood for them. That’s why I give blood.

I hope if you’ve never given blood you’ll consider it because it can be quite rewarding. I hope you have a good day as well. Wish me luck 🙂
