Things that make you go...

BARF.

I would love to donate blood. I would love to donate platelets. Unfortunately, after simply reading a blog post about donating platelets, I almost fainted.

I can't even handle giving blood for my own purposes. I've fainted nearly every time that I've had to. I try to warn the nurses ahead of time, but most of them ignore me and leave a vial of my blood up on the counter.

Vial of blood in viewing area = Ashley is out for the count.

Can't we donate other things, less vomit inducing, to others?

I have plenty of calories to donate.

I can't do it either. I cry whenever they take blood.

You read about what I did when I gave blood. Passed right out.

No, I didn't stay home today.. I had a training that went until 12:30, so I got a full day sub! It was totally worth it.

I can't donate either. No veins. I'm like a lizard or something. But it sounds noble!

I have some ass fat I'd be glad to donate if anyone is interested.

I'm so happy to hear that i'm not the only one deathly afraid of blood donation.
