I've bungee jumped...sky dived...eaten bugs as a delicacy...even performed stunts like lighting myself on fire briefly as a human torch, but for some reason this is one of my worst fears, and I really don't have a good explanation as for why. But, I want to conquer this fear, at least once, since I believe it's for a much better cause than simply "crossing it off" my bucket list.

First time I donated was at Michigan State my senior year! I was pretty nervous, but it was really as relatively painless as I hoped it was going to be. Was only light-headed for a little bit too, which was one of my bigger fears since I've had issues with that in the past... All good!

It was my first time, so at first I was very scared to do it, but it ended up fine and not that scary at all. 

Also not my arm.... It's not that hairy

I donated for the first time this morning! The man who drew my blood, Julian, was really excellent-- I hardly felt a thing when he poked me. I was expecting to become faint or at least dizzy, but it really wasn't a big deal at all. I'm a little tired now, but that probably has more to do with staying up until 2 AM last night talking to friends. I got there right when they opened, so I was the second person to donate. While we were waiting, I got to know the other girl there who was donating, whose name was Liliana. She was much more nervous than I was and actually ended up fainting. Personally, I wasn't really that afraid going into it, so think it was brave of her to do something that scared her so much.

I got my photograph taken for a blood donor card so next time, I can skip some of the paper work. It was such an honestly painless way to help people :)

  I learned my blood type in 5th grade and that was when I was told my blood was important. Since then I have willingly been a blood donor whenever I can although usually I find my timing and theirs doesn't match up well.

 This was in my final year college. I was apprehensive at first, but then felt completely at ease. Once you get done it feels like you have done something good for the society. I recommend it for all.

Cheers 

P.S - Waiting for my next opportunity to donate blood.

I decided to donate blood in honour of my my Dad who passed away unexpectedly two years ago. He was a blood donor from the age he was 17 and continued on through his life. He was a great man who would give, often at a significant cost to himself. By donating blood I am given the opportunity to help other people and I can acknowledge one of the numerous ways Dad helped others through his life.

Thank-you for setting such a tremendous example of what a good person is, Dad.

Well, it was pretty uneventful, surprisingly rewarding though. Plus all of the volunteers were super nice and gentle. The needle going in was a little painful, but nothing more than a pinch.

There were only a few people there, really, more people need to give blood. If you see a bloodmobile, just walk in and ask for an appointment.

I've always been so afraid of needles, but I finally faced that fear and donated blood. It was the most amazing thing ever, and I'm so proud of myself. The thought that my blood will help or save someone else's life is simply wonderful. I plan on doing this every single chance I get!
