Well this Bank Holiday Monday I have booked to do my first blood donation. It is my New Years resolution this year. I feel so proud of myself. Anyone else give blood?

Other previous New Years resolutions that I have acheive was giving up s moking (given up 7 years next month) go to the gym(been going nearly 2 years) Lose weight ( lost 3 stone in 2002) also give up the booze (given up 4 years in July) the oldest resolution was pass my driving test which was my rsolution from when i was 17. I passed 6 days after my 30th birthday so it was 13 years before i did it but i did. LOL

I would love to give blood but I am so scared of just having blood tests that I really could not go through with it :( I got to go for another blood test today and I am scared - I hate them so much!

My mum gives blood loads and they have really messed up her arm and last time she went I have never seen her arm so bruised - it is because they put it in then keep taking it out trying to find another vein!

I give blood regularly. I couldn't for a while because I was dangerously anaemic because of the coeliac disease - this was before my diagnosis. There's nothing to giving blood.

I also carry a donor card.
