It’s the least we can do…#GiveNow
My blood donation tips:
1) Always eat a banana before giving blood and
2) Eat your free snack and have your drink before you give blood!
Most, I repeat, most, of the time this keeps me from passing out. Today, not so much lol
Lucky for me though, a co-worker friend and I pretty much passed out together. If you’re gonna pass out, it’s always better with a friend! After we recovered, we decided that we had eaten breakfast and our bananas too early. Our appointment wasn’t until 12:30 and we didn’t squeeze lunch in there. Next time, we are going to meet for a good breakfast, lunch and then have a banana and snack right before! That ought to do it, but even if it doesn’t, with the sudden onset of sweat, nausea and dizziness, it’s a small price to pay to help safe a life!
Wasn’t my best blood donation day, but with the help of my “pass out” friend, we made it through! You will too…
