View Full Version : Yahoo! Blood donation number 1 down!!

Wow, am I thrilled to have that behind me!! As crazy as it sounds I have never donated blood due to my irrational fear of needles. So when the doctor said that I had to donate some units I just about started in a full blown fit on the spot. Those breathing lessons during child birth came in handy all over again. Well after talking myself through my fear I didn't pass out, praise God, and feel ready to donate again on the 27th. I guess the count down has begun.

Hi Peachtree,

Congratulations, you cleared a hurdle. Nothing compared to child birth, was it? ;) Keep your positive attitude. Don't ever feel gulity of being scared. We've all been there!!!
