My son's school had a blood drive today, I went and donated blood after dropping ds off and didn't have breakfast before :-/ it was my first time so I thought I would just get a little dizzy WRONG, I passed out! It was awful they had to wake me up with towels of cold water, but next time I know i have to have breakfast first lol

 Passing out will certainly make giving blood for the first time memorable.

I ate before hand but I guess didn't eat enough after. I passed out 3 times. Worst part? I was a junior in highschool and it happened during my english class and we were testing that day. My friends were mortified for me and my bff was crying (she was at lunch at the time). I haven't attempted since.

Oh gosh! Good for you for giving, I hope this doesn't turn you off. Definitely eat and drink some water next time, sometimes you can feel dizzy, etc even when you donate on a full well-hydrated stomach.
