Donate Blood (Text)Blood DriveI have only ever been able to donate once, the last time I went. This time, and all times before that one time, my iron levels have been too low. Sometimes just barely, like this latest, or sometimes badly, before I started taking vitamins and fish oil for it. I still try though, in the hope that I will get lucky like I did that once, and be able to.Everyone who can, should. Or at least, attempt to, like I do.It generally doesn't take very long, and the brief pain is over quickly. And then you get to drink orange juice and eat pretzels! And the people are usually nice.What are you waiting for? Go Donate!
