Yes very regularly.  Not at the moment because I'm pregnant, but lifetime I've given 16 times.  That equals 2 gallons of blood, which for some reason, really grosses me out when I think about it in gallons...

But yes, it's a great thing to do for anyone who is able!

I would love to, but I don't for a few reasons. Number one: I only have one good vein. I've tried and tried and tried to have blood drawn from my other arm, but it always ends up in a painful mess and they give up and go back to my good arm. So for my own personal health, I would like to try and poke my good arm as little as possible so it's in good condition for when I need it. Number two: I've heard conflicting info on donating blood while on my (probably life-long) medication. And number three: I've also heard conflicting info on the possibly negative reaction a recipient can have after receiving my blood.

.Nobody.
