Help! The vampires are coming to get me!

...or more accurately I've made an appointment to give them a pint tomorrow. Eeek! *cowers in corner*

I'm no good at giving blood. The only bit I seem any good at is avoiding doing it, which I seem to have managed for about 2 years now inspite of the fact that they ring me religiously each month to ask me to make an appointment. *hangs head in shame*

I mean, who's bright idea was it to make me both O negative and ridiculously squeamish? I'd laugh at the irony if it didn't make me feel so ill. I don't seem to be able to even walk past one of those lorries without my stomach attempting to impersonate a world champion gymnast anymore. I thought this was supposed to get easier?

Yes, I'm being a coward, but it's an evil blood sucking lorry of doom. *nods head to make the argument more convincing*

Perhaps, if I'm lucky, I'll go down with some rare tropical disease overnight?


*runs and hides quivering in the corner*

I know I'll be fine, but that doesn't stop me being irrational about it...

At least I get to get my own back by going really pale and worrying all the nurses.

May have taken your advice a little too excessively.

Wouldn't have been surprised if my blood had come out clear as a result (it may well have done - I didn't look)

Good luck! And try not to go too pale, they withheld my tea afterwards once when I tried that *scowls*

I'm guessing this is a bad time to tell you I'm reading "Dracula" for my Gothic module???

Strangely enough, I could cope with dracula. Just skimmed over certain bits and let my imagination metaphorically look away...

At least it sounds like you haven't passed out after giving which was what I did last time (albeit due to the heat rather than squeamishness. Still.)
Hope it all goes well.

I don't think I've ever passed out over anything (except anestic, but it would be a surprise not to)

Needles, blood, whathave you, no problem at all and I'm highly resistant to most anaesthetics and sedatives (really hope I never need surgery again!) but one mildly warm day and I'm flat on my nose.
