That's just disgusting for people to lie to get out of a good deed. I feel sick now. You know, your dad was always a prick. I like Dave better.

20 yrs ago - Thursday 10/3/02 - 11:32:44 PM EST (GMT-5)

if you don't want to give blood, you don't have to. Simple.

hmm, that is pretty pathetic adn evil cos if he didnt want to give blood, he could at least have had the decency to come straight out with it
19 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 10/18/02 - 12:32:40 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah..at least be honest...man I went through hell to be allowed to give blood, I had to have my Dr's permission, then my blood count was too low, then my Bp too high..in 5 tries I've only given twice..but I keep trying..

When I get old enough, I probably won't, for selfish reasons. It makes me sick. The way it feels, teh blood getting sucked out, makes me sick. Just giving a lil tube for a test at teh docs makes me sick. I couldn't do it. They'd have to knock me out first.
19 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 10/22/02 - 5:30:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I have a legitimate reason. Although I have helped organize and volunteer at them.
19 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 10/22/02 - 5:45:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
bleh, same here, matt. and i agree, it's selfish. but i get so sick at that stuff. i visited my mom in the hospital when she was sick once, and just seeing that she had a tube going into her arm made me nearly pass out. i had to leave and sit in the waiting room for a few minutes. anyway, you can just say you don't want to. no reason to lie.
19 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 10/22/02 - 7:10:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
no why on earth would you lie to get out of it.
19 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 10/22/02 - 7:12:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't have to lie. I'm just plain not doing it, how about that? No way in hell am I ever giving blood. Ever. It's mine, all mine!
19 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 10/22/02 - 7:14:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
i hope you never need blood artic.
19 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 10/22/02 - 7:16:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
I hope I don't ever need it either, Morgue. I don't want anyone elses either even if it means my life. Stupid? Yes. Selfish? Yes. Oh well.
19 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 10/22/02 - 7:48:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
GET OUT of giving blood??? HAHAHAHAHA I TRY to GIVE AWAY my blood every month and they just won't take it!! Seriously, I want to give blood so badly (I have this fixation with giving a gallon of blood. Oh, and I want to help others in a simple yet effective way) but every time I go, "they" turn me away. "Not enough iron," they say! Bah!
19 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 10/22/02 - 7:49:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
Eat more red meat.
19 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 10/25/02 - 12:47:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
Liver especially Rayn.
19 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 10/25/02 - 12:56:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
Take iron tablets..I have to..I take them every day and still I have lowish iron, but it is high enough to donate....some people are just genetically low in iron..
19 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 10/29/02 - 3:58:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
They wouldn't want my blood mate. The person they gave it to would probably get off their face on the shlt.
19 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 10/30/02 - 11:36:42 AM EST (GMT-5)
I can't give blood because I carry a cancerous gene in my blood and I wouldn't want to give anybody what I have and that is the truth so i wouldn't have to lie.
19 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 10/30/02 - 11:38:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I give blood given the opportunity. Although my blood runs slow so I've been having problems the last 2 times with coagulation so it's too much of a pain in the ass for me, because it ends up going to waste.
19 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 11/10/02 - 11:11:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm not allowed to give blood, I don't weigh enough. I tried once but i passed out a bunch of times, it made me really sick.
19 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 11/13/02 - 9:50:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
I like to give blood, they give you Coke and cookies and a tee shirt.
19 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 11/13/02 - 11:55:40 AM EST (GMT-5)
I used to give blood regularly. Now, they won't let me; because I was stationed in Italy during a time when the U.S. military bought beef from the UK. They say I am permanently disqualified from giving because of the fear of Mad Cow (thank God we don't have to worry about that in the U.S.--note sarcasm). And people wonder why I'm a vegan.
