Blood. It’s in me but…

After an extensive conversation with the nurse I have found out the parameters around my ability to give blood.  First and foremost I am not allowed to give until December 19th, 2010 because I visited an area of Mexico which could have exposed me to Malaria.  Secondly, I am not allowed to give within six months of being ‘glutened.’  They call it a ‘flare up.’  I call it ‘hell.’  And finally, my iron levels have to be deemed high enough before they’ll even go near me with a needle.

It’s too bad.  I wanted to give.  If you’re able to, please go make a donation.

This is my best puppy-dog face.
