    No I haven't. Every time I work up the courage to do it (it makes me vomit and shake) I get sick.

    I have needed several transfusions after a nasty car accident a few years ago.
    Which is why I want to donate... I just haven't been able to yet.

    I have donated but haven't done it for a while. I used to do the full donation including plasma etc. I was meant to receive a transfusion after my c section but the decided against it at the last minute as I was recovering better than expected.

    I have donated in the past ...

    but am unable to donate now due to a blood disorder.


    I have needed blood transfusions, and vastly appreciate the blood donors who make those transfusions possible.

    I used to donate blood regularly until about 1.5 years ago when I became badly anaemic. At last check I was back up in healthy levels, but I'm too scared to start donating again incase it happens again. I miss donating blood though, I used to really enjoy it.

    I have never needed blood.

    I have been 'banned' from giving blood as I always faint. Tried several times though. I have never needed blood.

    I used to donate regularly, I've planned after having DS but I got a staph infection (which I'm STILL fighting to get rid of!) and have no idea if I can donate or how long I need to wait.

    I've never needed blood before.

    I would love to but can't because my veins are too small and even if they weren't because of my job I can only donate plasma.

    I'm from the UK so I'm not allowed. I had to have some after my csection and my DD had to have loads when she was born.

    I use to give quite regularly, but ended up having a lot of collapsed veins so was told to stop.

    I had a number of transfusions during my pregnancy due to continual bleeding.

    Also my dad has leukaemia and needs very regular blood products.

    I intend to start donating again (thanks for the reminder).
