Used to do it, now I have so many prescription drugs in my blood it would be positively dangerous to do so. :((

Congratulations Portside,

Up to forty odd pints now. Been giving since 82, but had a spell overseas when I was on the emergency list but never called. Next due 24 Feb 2010.

Cheers

when you get to whatever the number is (cannot remember) you get invited down to London for a meal and a presentation. It was great fun as you do not know who will be there!

I did it for years until I was knocked off my bike and one day when I was in hospital they said my bloods were low so I needed a pint. They plugged me in to the drip (I reckon from the date on the bag it could well have been the stuff I'd given the week before) and half way through the bag the nurse came and told me yesterday's bloods were back and mine was perfectly ok and I didn't need the transfusion but there was no point in stopping it half way through. When I came out of hospital I got a letter saying I couldn't give blood ever again because the transfusion might have given me BSE. I think this was the thing that most upset me about the accident. But the NHS were marvellous - from the moment I got to the hospital I was treeted like a king. I used to work in the MoD and when the van came round all the wimpy civil servants who gave were fine - it was the rufty tufty soldiers who passed out in rows!

Thanks to all donors :-)) :-)) :-)). In the past I have had to receive some of the good stuff and without donors like you, people like me would have not survived. Once again THANKS.

DickyD....we can all have fun remembering past times..........when I was 200 ft from the blood bank door & found my arm leaking BIG RED  drops of liquid...went back along the terrazzo corridor & reported the leakage to the senior sister who simply said.....we are not worried about your arm...... >>:-( ...but who will clean all of those blood drops from the floor?

However I suggest DickyD ......your latest posting here is an absolute & total disgrace in the representation of a blood Doner.... >:-o...  ....very disappointed ....I am also surprised that the Global set of Moderators did not question this same posting.........Derek

Derek we have long realised that you have no sense of humour.

I put that on in responce to Daz's posting.

I would also like to point out that I have given blood on a regular basis for 40 odd years and I don't find it at all offensive.

Still if it makes you feel good please report it to the moderators and I will abide by their decision.

Happy now ?

klunk says ......"Its a bit of a cheat cos I was matched to a baby for platelets for 3 years and you donate every 2 weeks"

I think most would disagree with you here 'klunk'....the only cheating you did was against the condition of the child & conseques of the not having the platelet support of a dedicated donor  :-)) ....Derek

Being a blood donor is an admirable thing regardless of how often and how much is given.

Acknowledging one's indebtedness to the Blood Bank is also worthy.

Let's keep it to that, please folk and maintain both a sense of humour and a sense of proportion.

This thread is being watched, closely. If it gets out of hand it will be locked.

Portside asked Martin for wrinkly smiley, Dicky was just doing his best to oblige, in his usual helpful way.
