Quoting emtgirl885:

I donate plasma, not blood

Who takes donated plasma?  I was told its only SOLD and its only for research at pharmaceutical companies.  The red cross and memorial blood center do not take just plasma.

Sorry. In clarification, I do not donate blood. I do get paid for my plasma.

Aww .. thank goodness for those that do :)

I use to, but can't anymore due to a type of fungal lung infection I got while living in AZ. I have also been the recipient of a transfusion, so thank you all who do donate...if it didn't save my life, it sure felt like it did.

I can't. I have MS and that is on the list of things not allowed since they don't know what causes MS.

I have O-, so I started donating again this summer. It had been a long time since my last donation since I'd get rejected time and again for things like being anemic or taking antibiotics. So I finally got to donate, only to discover that I go into shock afterwards. I tried twice, just to make sure it wasn't a fluke. It wasn't. I'm too delicate to donate, I guess. :(

I have tried, my veins will not give out a full pint. They had to stop early both times. They now won't let me
