Way to go, friend......... bringing a noob to blood donor clinic is so cool. Get 'em hooked on giving. Nothing more honourable than that.

Let's hope your friend hasn't been handling any monkeys or been to any of those forbidden places.

And hope they don't get frightened off by all the questions.

Booking an appointment tomorrow!

Went first thing this morning. Not a good idea for me. Too much caffeine from night before and not enough water. Took a long time to fill the bag. Nearly had to abort. Caffeine dehydrates you and causes shrinkage - not something guys want to hear, LOLOLOLOLOL. The veins, that is.

Blood donation gone wrong today at oak Centre

I have super small veins. Lots of nurses told me that.
Today I got a trainee. First one said she didn't feel confident.
Second one did it and pinched my nerve multiple times. It hurt like a fucking bitch Holy shit.
Most nurses pinch my nerves initially so I'm pretty used to the pain but this one was omg my arm felt like it was tearing apart
Body went into shock and I couldn't stop shaking like a retard for an hour.
never going to that location again. Staffs are super nice and friendly there though.

Did you drink a lot of water and stay away from caffiene? I had problems last time and it was due to taking water too late. At least one day before drink lots of water.

As for the nurses, there are good ones and there are bad ones. When I go, I make sure to tell them about my rolling veins - only the best nurse in the house to poke my veins.

BTW, Blood Services finally sent my my 25 donation card. Really nice........

Bringing this up from the dad files..........


I stopped giving blood after 28 times. After my wife passed away, I really didn't want anything to do with the health care system. Recently and all of a sudden, I realized how selfish that is. My wife went for blood transfusions a few times during her fight with cancer and I thought to myself, "What if, people just stopped giving blood?" I'm going to start donating again.''

Please consider giving blood, RS. All of you young ones.......... if an old fart like me can do it, so can you.

i used to consistently do it every 56 days, book a time Friday and I get work to give me the time off to go donate blood early. It's awesome

Do drink tons of water the morning of.

As for now, I stopped giving blood as I'm constantly on medication. Can't wait to give blood again. It's free!

Yes, donate blood. It seems like a taboo thing to do for people in my age group (19-25) - but people react to incentives. I donated after seeing my grandfather in the hospital for blood transfusions.

Making it a quarterly routine now; costs my body nothing since I am young and healthy, and its for a good cause.

I wish I'd donated more before being put on medication. My only real regret in life

^Thats totally fine. You know RS will more than make up for it. It was a RS blood drive thing way way back that pushed me to start donating. That's when I met a lot of RS members, right, Orgasmic Donor? Saucywoman, just to name a couple.

Which reminds me, you can donate under the Revscene name. Can someone confirm this?

I used to go to those, pretty sure I helped out with the arranging of one of them... I think it was when I first joined
