It takes me about 4 hours to get to the point where I can get myself home.
I go to bed and sleep.
The next day I feel like I have been softly bruised all over and have a headache (still think there were injections of alcohol!)
What they didn't ask me was; 'what's your blood pressure like'.
If your blood pressure is a bit low, it may not be such a good idea to give blood if you haven't eaten or drunk anything for a while.
They think that was what happened to me, and I don't want anyone put off by my tale of woe. I am just feeble and useless (the more you read of the blogs the more you will realise this to be true!).
Normal healthy people give blood with no problems at all.
Do give blood if you can, it save lives...My one measley pint might make all the difference to someone and that makes all my nausea and embarrassment worthwhile.
I just might give it a miss for a while, and probably not do it at work. (And watch those nurses..syringes with alcohol, I tell you!!!!)
