Did it weekly from age 18 to 25. Cannot now due to too many overseas trips. If I don't leave the country I can start again in two years.

 I've done it twice. Both times about half way thru my blood pressure dropped and they told me as much as they would love my blood please don't come back.

Yes, but I haven't done it since I had our daughter. She is 9 monthes old and I have not been able to get away when we have had our recent blood drives.

Yes every 6 to 8 weeks.  My Hubby and I have been giving blood for many years. We gave blood for my Dad when he had his knee done. My whole family have always donated blood with the Blood Bank but when there is a Special Blood Drive we do that.  Such as 3 different Blood Drive for 2 kids  and 1 adult that we knew had Cancer.

Nope, nor do I want to and now they wouldn't take mine anyway.
