I can’t say how many times over the years that I’ve thought about donating blood. I mean, there’s an on-going need for donations and I know that it takes no time at all and I know that there’s no reason for me not to…….yet I haven’t done it. However, a friend has posted on Facebook about how she’s donated for the first time and it really made me think ‘just do it’! So, I’m booked in for 23 November. I’m not too bad about blood tests but this might sound silly…….the thought of a finger prick feels FAR FAR more daunting than having a needle thrust into my arm! If I can do that, the second part will be a doddle.
