  • I do. Every 56 days.

    And Anon: my aunt is nearly 300 pounds and donates as often as I do.

  • I donate platelets...usually once a month. Due to my blood type, they prefer me to donate platelets. I can go every two weeks but something usually keeps me from it.

  • I have never donated blood. I want to though, but when I was able to, i was too young, then I had a son and now I just haven't gotten a chance because I don't drive. My mom has donated over 3 gallons total

  • I always have, but I am worried now that I got fat that they won't want my blood.

  • I don't....i'm a type 2 diabetic and even just a vial for blood work causes my blood sugar to drop really quickly to the point of passing out. I've been told to not donate
