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.
