Rejected by the Red Cross. Even vampires don't want me...OH THE SHAME!

Darn low iron count. I'll have to eat a bunch of spinach and try again in a little while.

Hey if anybody doesn't read over the weekend, I answered all of your questions on saturday. So if you're curious, go check it out!

I also did the Race For the Cure on saturday, and it went really really well. Pictures and stories to come, when I find time...busy day today. Even without the blood donation.

Yeah, I know. I respect that you don't lie. They have a lot of really restrictive rules -- like my sis can't donate, because she spent a year in Europe 10 years ago. It is a real shame, especially when blood is so needed. I understand their need to be careful, but still.

Darn low iron count.

Low iron is one of the huge reasons people feel colder than they should.

Hey, maybe if someone is habitually cold it could have something to do with low iron?

I don't know WHAT you are talking about!!!

And the fact that I'm currently wearing a hoodie is completely irrelevent.

Yeah, I have the same problem. Feeling especially tired is also a sign for me. Altho my tendency to feel cold is b/c I have almost no blood pressure. I try to find out in advance when there will be a blood drive I can get to & start on a daily iron supplement (I read local newspapers alot & notice them). It werked for the last time I gave blood, I'd gotten my iron level just high enough.

Me too, I usually take vitamins and/or iron supplements before giving blood -- the problem was that I'd forgotten all about my company's blood drive until I saw the Red Cross trucks parked in our lot this morning! Bummer.

Probably just as well, not wise to give right after a trip, even if just europe.
