I'll have to check my schedule when I get back home, but I'm going to try to actually make this!

Have you ever donated before?

If you're a first time donor, they'll walk you through the process but you'll do fine. There's still a chance it could happen, but it's not a common thing. I've donated every year at the Rock and never had a problem...I've also donated quite a lot so I don't pass out.

i've had issues donating, and the trick is to be well hydrated. drink a ton of extra water before you donate and you'll be fine

I enjoy donating blood. They never let you watch them stick the needle in your arm. It literally feels like getting a shot.

They always make sure to have snacks and whatnot when you go.

There is very little chance of you actually passing out, unless you actually THINK that you'll pass out. The mind is an amazingly powerful thing.
