So if I lived in England between 1988 and 2000 does that mean I can't donate due to mad cow disease? Forever or just a specific time period?

When I worked at a hospital that had a blood donor centre close by I donated blood regularly (approx 10 years ago). I even did plasma donations for a period. When my first daughter was born I had a 2.2L PPH and needed 3 units of blood.

I've donated twice and fainted both times so they suggested I not return. Mum is the same, we both have low blood pressure and get light headed standing from sitting etc so not sure if that's why.
I've never needed blood.

I'm not allowed to donate here as I'm from the UK and there is the mad cow disease risk apparently. I was raised vegetarian though.
I needed a transfusion after my daughter's birth. Very grateful for it. Felt so much better afterwards.

I used to donate semi regularly. I don't know why I stopped.

I can't donate blood because I am a Britski, otherwise I would in a heartbeat.
I have needed blood once - I had three units after my PPH. Weirdest feeling ever...

I'm going to bump this one. With a few hubbers having some bad news lately. A reminder that one of the biggest needs for blood is for cancer patients.
