let me know what you think... really.

i just tried to donate blood and the lady couldnt find my vein so she kept ripping around inside my arm with the needle. i was afraid she would poke through the vein, through my skin on the otherside and i'd start gushing out tons of blood. ugh.
then my super blood clotted on the way into the baggy and it all stopped. so my blood and pain was useless.

but i got a cookie, juice, a bumper sticker, tee shirt, AND a swollen arm. yay nj blood center!

why are people that get paid to take blood so incompetant? The first time I gave blood I got a bruise the size of... I don't know, but it was atleast 6" long and 3" wide. And then the second time... *shiver* they tried to do something fancy and take double packed red blood cells which means taking blood out, centrifuging it, putting plazma back into me and takeing more blood and doing it again. Anyway- that failed miserabley, adn while they were trying to fix the machine they forgot about me, with a needle stuck in my arm and no blood flow.... YAY
