Aaawwwwyeah, I'm talking about blood. Giving blood is one of those things I decided I should do more of in the new year. So when the opportunity presented itself, I decided to make a donation today at work.
It didn't hurt at all. The tape they use to keep the needle in place hurt more when they took it off. Rachel was great and a shout-out to Inova Blood Donor Services for coming to the Government Center and making it so easy to give.
Plenty of studies show that it's healthy to replenish your blood by giving. Your body produces more and it's fresh, it's like changing the oil in your car, which reminds me, I need to get the oil changed in my car.
