I went down to Carter Blood Care today to do my first platelet donation. It turns out that I’ve got enough for a double donation, but I just couldn’t do it. I got most of the way done, over 3/4 complete, and started feeling pretty funky so we stopped. I’ll definitely be going back to do it again, but it’ll be a single instead of a double.
Read up on platelet donation, and if you’re able, please think about doing it.
