First Pint Given

I’d been looking to donate blood for a little while now. Seems like something simple to do and it would make a difference.

I just hadn’t found the right time. Once it was storming, like Tornado warnings. Another day something for work came up.

Last week I had an open morning and there was a blood drive happening not far from me.

Signed up, went over and got it done.

It’s a fairly simple process. Answer some questions. Have your iron checked. Get hooked up and go.

It didn’t take long to fill up the bag. I felt fine afterwards but didn’t workout that day. They recommend nothing strenuous the rest of the day so I adhered and took a rest day.

I plan on giving regularly from here on out. If you are able, I’d recommend that you try giving some as well.
