I gave blood for the first time today. I have to say, I was very impressed with the whole process. The staff are friendly, they explain everything clearly and make you feel so relaxed.
I really, don’t know why i haven’t done this before as there really was no pain. Didn’t feel a thing, and it was over in no time.
I had some black current squash and a penguin chocolate bard afterwards.
I’m already looking forward to my next donation – I have to wait 12 weeks.
Seriously, though, please consider giving blood, if I can do it (and you are talking about someone who hides behind a pillow watching Casualty), anyone can!
