Good Deed

"You don't have to be a doctor to save lives"

30 September 2010 was a special day to me. It's the day that I donated my blood for the first time.

Without any hesitation, I decided to participate immediately when i saw the blood donation campaign advertisement a few days before.

Before donate, i felt excited yet a little bit scared since it was my first time.

Luckily enough, i passed all the requirements like not on medication, enough sleep, normal blood pressure and etc this time. I have missed a few chances previously.

During the process, i could actually feel the blood oozing out after the nurse inserted the needle in and my arm felt a little bit numb after that. Not sure why my blood oozed out quite slow compare to others.

After all, i have donated 350ml of blood. Although, it's not a big amount, i felt that i have accomplished something big. Just simply feel great when thinking that my blood might save a life.

I will definitely do it again next time.
