I cannot give blood frown and have to admit this is better than some of the aggressive techniques which make me feel like crap because i can't.

things like people are dying for donors. I had a nurse at school have a go at me for not giving blood calling me selfish and evil...

Until I pointed out WHY my blood wasn't suitable.

I support blood donations and am a registered organ donor... although I dunno if that is affected by my inability to give blood.

Well done loki clap


A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.

Posted:I want to but can't because I only weigh 7 and a half stone (I'm a scrawny git) and have had piercings and tattoos recently. In a few mnths I might go back and put weights in my pockets. I'm a registered organ donor but also ride motorcycles so the likelyhood is that they'll be useless due to the splat factor of a motorcycle accident frown

Posted:I don't think that its because people can't be bothered. In fact i expect there are a lot of people that would really want to give blood but the strict rules mean that they can't

In the hop community the percentage of people who are tattooed and pierced or have been to countries that mean they can't give blood is very high.

Posted:Star is right. The rules for giving blood are very strict and that means that lots of us can't for one of many reasons. The rules about countries, tattoos and weight are understandable but there are some others that seem a little daft.

Posted:wait... why would you not be able to give blood if you had a tattoo or a piercing? O.o.... it just seems strange unless theres some kind of life threatening thing about having them when you give blood. i mean there are people your trying to save and they worry about small things? O.o... anyways if im being stupid put me in my place because i dont know what im talking about ^_^ Enlighten me oh Home of poi Citizens that mostly consist of pyromaniacs that twirl/spin and eat fire.

Posted:I think its because getting a tatoo or a piecering increaes the chances of you getting an infection alot, and if you did get one then you would pass that infection on wich can be seriouse to people who need to recieve blood because there in a very weakend state if there getting a transfusion.



Well I imagine its something like that anyway.

Posted:to be honest i think all the rules are silly i know they're in place to protect the people who need the blood but if they took blood from everyone and did a full screen on every pint they took they would still be able to protect the people they are trying to protect and they would also get a lot more blood

i have given blood before but am also now not allowed to give blood ever again i think it sucks,

i know full blood screens are expensive but some people who give blood lie on the questionnaires about things that would disqualify them from donating so i think it is necessary anyway.

i myself know that even though due to the rules i can't give blood there is nothing wrong with my blood as i have had a full blood screen recently however this still doesn't allow me to donate its censored ridiculous.

all you HoPpers that are able to give then please support loki in trying to organise more blood drives as one day it may be you that needs the blood.
