anyone evry done this? is it just like a blood test?
(and I'm assuming you can't because of your well documented liking of coke)
Is there a certain length of time you have to have gone without taking anything before you can give blood?
it's 28 days and it's like 4 years for coke and i think if you've had heroine you cant give it.
coke left your system in about 48 hours. eeeeeek
bad or anything, but whatever they dont take the blood if they see you have used drugs.
or smoked crack..?
I never knew / realised details about the above..
lived over here (risk of variant cjd etc)...
But I don't think I can!
I've also recently found out that I have a rare-ish blood type when I was in hospital this summer but now I can't remember what it was as forgot to write it down... Hmm.....
beat me to it..
having been subjected to hundreds of blood tests in later life and feeling completely, 1000000% violated each and every time, and weak at the knees, the thought of this act makes me want to curl up into a ball and cry.
and give you something to drink or something like that. That is what my dad used to tell me... but this was the mid 80s... I am sure you will be okay!
Don't mind me... I don't mean to freak you out.
the only thing is, both of my arms are scarred from burns quite badly where i got shot with a blank round which is where they will take the blood from and i think it might hurt as the skin is still sensitive.
they will tell you then.
it's fine, it doesn't really hurt. Sometimes it makes you arm feel a bit tight, like it's going to shrivel up, but that may have been psychsomatic on my part.
What's weird is when you look over and see other people lying down on their couches and see all the blood going down into their little bag and then you think "Fools. They haven't got a clue what's going on under the couch", but then you realise the same is happening to you and you panic slightly before pulling yourself together again by imagining you are a world war two POW in a a german hospital and there's no way you're going to let the side down by blubbing in front of jerry.
Afterwards you are given unlimited tea, orange squash and biscuits and there is a lot of potential for chatting to old people who ,I suspect, only turn up for the biscuits and chats anyway.
the only thing im worried about is my scarred arms, will they still do it if i have these?
you fucking idiot
and it hurts when i push down on it like quite badly so i thought it might enflame my arm or something.
dressed as nurses trying to inject you with some kind of horrendous nazi infection. Or a soldier of the Imperial Japanese Army leaping out from behind a screen and bayonetting you where you lie without a word of warning
this looks bad Chris, I've got a bad feeling about this
I gave in 2000 then was gonna give month ago to get outta work, anyway:
1) Doesn;t matter if you've smoked weed, asked nurse and was fine, prob ok for coke etc
It's only if you inject drugs you can't give
You get a pin prick for a test and then a big needle up your arm
