My sister Lily Rose and I donated blood for my relative yesterday at The Medical Center in Ortigas area. Though I am a nursing graduate, I literally forgot the do’s and dont’s about blood donation. Good thing the nurse who assisted and screened us made a pretty good job. Yes it did hurt, think about a 16 gauge needle being inserted through your veins. But hey! at the end of it all, I felt proud of myself, I was able to help my relative and at the same time, I experienced another unforgettable moment in my life. I guess I’m gonna make this a regular habit, thinking of donating blood twice every year.
