Cant . Always get told I’m too small or have weird iron amounts or some bs. I’ve tried . I’ve always thought it would be a nice thing to do for people .to be fair so be only tried like 2 times .

In the past. I've had a problem with Vasovagal Syncope and  have felt light headed and would pass out. It's happened more times than I can count.

I can't, sadly. I have a condition called hydrocephalus and had a shunt fitted into my brain. Because that makes me high risk of infection, they won't accept donations from me. Upsets me because I'm O- and that can go to any blood group.

I have a couple times before. I have also been turned away for having too low of an iron count. I would give it a go again if it was convenient, like there was a blood drive at my work or som*thing. I considered donating plasma once when I was hard up for some cash, but I never did.
