I haven’t been allowed to donate blood since I had a false positive HIV test about 40 years ago.

The last time I tried to give blood was in October 2001. I say "tried" because the technician informed me that my veins were too small -- roughly the size of the needle . . . . That was the first I heard of veins shrinking with age. I've often had trouble with medical blood draws (except when I was pregnant), so I was probably borderline to start with.

I donated blood recently, the bruise in my elbow has turned yellow and
started to fade.

A bunch of random strangers saved my life when I nearly died in childbed,
and I feel I ought to pay it forward. I donate at the same hospital, maybe
I will help a relative of someone who helped me.

The earliest I can donate again is Feb 16 - not exactly the hearts for the
holiday :)
