they screen the blood accurately and you can get anything from other places besides blood would you eat a hamburger if they told you the cow had aides think about it nothing is 100 percent safe, but you gotta do what you gotta do and i say give blood and if you ever need blood you may as well accept it.

I am anemic too. But I really want to give blood. Would something serious happen if I did give blood? I don't think so. If I ate a lot before and after the blood drive, wouldn't that be okay?

Sorry Amber but you must not donate if you are anemic. You should check with a doctor before you take a serious step.

I have been turned down in the past for giving blood just because I have a heart murmer. For those who don't know a heart murmer is just an irregular pulse. Other than that I'm perfectly healthy. My wife has O- blood which anyone can use so she tries to give as often as she can. Although lately she has been hesitant to give because most of her experiences giving blood have been bad ones. It seems that some of the people who work for the blood drives have very bad attitudes and don't act at all appreciative for your donation. And I'm sorry but if you don't hit a vein the first time it is much less painful to just pull the needle out and try again but they seem to like to dig around inside you until they find the vein which can be very painful. has anyone else had experiences like these as well?

I think that is ridiculous. The number of times I have donated they just tapped my hand with the fingers to find the vein. Mostly they take from left hand but in my case its the right, so sometimes they had difficulty in finding the vein. Now but I have never had an experience of pushing in and pulling out of needles like that. Better you visit some other blood donation chamber if your wife to donate at all. It is harmful the way she has been treated.
