It seems as if the Red Cross has different rules across the country. I was
a regular blood donor before and after GD.. Since I have started anti-depressants
and mild relazation drugs I do not donate any longer. But I have never been
turned down for donating with GD. As long as my levels were stable they were
glad to take my blood. I was one pint shy of my 5 gallon pin,. I am also an
organ donor. I wonder if they will take them now??? I have a living will that
states my organ donor wishes. I have told my doctors and family if there is
anything left of me bigger than a postage stamp I will be dissapointed.
After we are gone we are just but a shell and I would prefer to give someone
life or sight than feed the bugs if you know what I mean. Don’t want to appear
to be morbid but after I am gone my shell should be put to good use.
Talk to you latter,
