My 1st Blood Donation!

At the start of this year, I told myself I’d find an opportunity to overcome my fear of giving blood. Some opportunities came by but somehow the timing wasn’t right. So when I saw some nurses setting up deck chairs at the Masjid Jamek LRT on the way to work last week, I went ahead and just did it.

Expecting to feel faint, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was fine, just with tingly fingers after a few hours, nothing serious. So how was it? It felt great! To be able to contribute, to experience a great nurse who left hardly a scar and really, that it wasn’t as painful as feared! Just don’t look at the needle, it’s larger than the normal jabs you get.

Yay! Maybe a yearly affair?
