    I'm not allowed. Apparently they're not desperate enough for blood that they can turn me away just because I'm South African, I've lived here for 10 years now, if I haven't died of some african disease by now. They won't let my wife donate now either.

    Would love to do it but can't face needles, they inflict sheer terror into me when I see them, fainting some times too

    I gave blood once, years ago. They only took half a pint, cos my blood was so stubborn to leave me!

    Fainting works, it makes it easier for them because you aren't squirming :)

    just given my very first donation today, i am no longer a virgin.

    must admit it wasn't half as bad as i expected it to be, once the needle was in i could feel a little discomfort but nothing that i'd call pain. wish i'd done it years ago, i feel as if i've done something worthwhile for a change.

    well there was two Merc drivers on the A1 last night that i could gleefully have ripped an arm off and beaten them to death with the wet end but they'd have probably tried to save them with my blood knowing my luck, lol
