Now I have an etiquette question. At some point after being stuck, I complained of the pain. Now, this is not the worst pain I've ever experienced, not even close really, but I have a low tolerance to certain types of pain. The nurse said, in response to my complaint, "You've never had children, have you.""No," I said, "No I have not."Now, at the time I was a little preoccupied, but now that I think about it this really pisses me off. No, I haven't had children. Does that mean every other type of pain is insignificant? Of course not. I resent that she implied this though, because even though it was a momentary pain instead of lasting 12 hours, it was quite different from giving birth anyway. There was no adrenelaine and no epidurals or any painkillers. I'm not saying giving birth is easy, but you just can't compare the two. The most important part is mentally, these two types of pain are completely different.
If I had some ham, I could have ham and eggs, if I had some eggs.
But I told myself if I did that I would have to come here and get DottyG to take my name off the front page, so I stuck it out.
and I think I convinced one other person to give blood.
Good for you whylime13! You rock! *cheering* *applause*I'm glad you had steak the night before. You're not allowed to donate if your iron isn't high enough, and that steak helped you!I have low iron, but not too low (I pass the iron test, but I'm always pushing it). It was a good thing I had also had a nice steak the previous night!They test your blood by putting a drop of it in a solution. The faster it sinks the more iron there is. My husband's blood sank like a rock.
