I was excited to give blood today
My iron was too low.
I'm so FRUSTRATED about that! It happens every single time, but sometimes I get lucky the second time they prick my finger and it will be the absolute minimum number that you need to donate. I DON'T GET IT! I eat lots of fruits and veggies like the paper says! The only thing on that list that I DON'T really eat often is red meat. I think next time I might just take iron pills a few days before I go!
I think it has SOMETHING to do with my poor circulation and being cold. (and today definitely fit that bill EXTRA time because it was POURING rain when I walked to class this morning and after, so my socks were soaked and that made me even EXTRA COLD, and I couldn't do anything about it! :(
I get bummed because I actually try to go every 56 days (that's how long you have to wait before donating again), but I go and then I can't donate! Not gonna lie, I feel like there is something wrong with me and it just puts me in a sad mood.
thank goodness my friend posted this video on facebook and it cheered me up!!! :)
