I gave last October, and it was kept a secret because I wanted to surprise my best friend with a photo book documenting my blood donation journey for Christmas.
We have a strange relationship.
I was going to post the picture of the needle while in my arm, but I didn't want to make anyone woozy, so I posted the picture of my looking a little out of it.
The nice lady gave me a pink bow on my purple bandage. I liked it.
Giving blood was not as terrible as I thought it was going to be. I almost passed out, but still. I'm looking forward to donating in college with my best friend...we can race to see who fills the bag first.
