In all my forty-five years I have never donated blood; not being a fan of either pain or needles, I have always shied away from doing so.

Today the WP Blood Transfusion Service is holding a donation clinic at our offices so, knowing how important it is to be a donor, I decided that today would be the day of my first donation.  I filled in the forms and presented myself to the “vampires”, only to be told they didn’t want my blood.  Seemingly the fact that I had my gall bladder removed in January means I can’t donate until August.  Great, now I have to go through working up the courage to make my first donation another time.
