I’m a regular donor priding myself in donating whole blood four times each year.
Since December, however, the flu has come and returned a couple of times. Maybe it was simply a reaction to the lack of sleep but I had to be safe and fit.
I’ve finally clocked two symptom-free weeks so am I’m off to the blood bank for my long overdue 104th donation. There is an hour more before the blood bank closes – I logged in to the appointment booking system at HSA and there isn’t much a of a queue.
It’ll be a timely donation since since the blood bank’s blood group ‘O’ stocks are low. it’ll be nice to do something useful today!
