I need to book in. I'm O- so they love me and I can get special appointments apparently. Didn't miss one for about first eight years from 16 but then had jobs where couldn't book in as never knew what time I would leave work. Know lucky enough to have them visit a football stadium 5 minutes from my work so book in around lunchtime


I love the appointment scheme, I realise it's hard for those with less predictable schedule as you can't get a walk in anymore but means I can allow and hour and it takes less rather then sometimes being around 2 hours

I like the text you now get a week or so after donation.

It's more than 12 years since I gave blood. Rheumatoid arthritis means they don't want my blood any more. Autoimmune disease.

When I was at college, there was a very poor juxtaposition of visiting vehicles one day: the blood service, asking for students' blood, and the Scottish & Newcastle Brewery's mobile bar, giving away free beer. I gave a pint of blood and then had 5 pints of something. Not to be recommended.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

Blood given today, but, currently the coffee they are doing is de-caff

all went well this time except for the  hb level that was on the low side (140g/l). could that still be the effect from a 240k ride six days ago?

I had a lowish hb once (137 I think). That was the week after a 600.

No hot drinks at all today  >:(

Was informed that my blood goes to the neo-natal unit cos I don't got cytomegalovirus
It was a day like any other in Ireland, only it wasn't raining
