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!
