100 Happy Days Redux: Day 100

I was going to end my 100 Happy Days with something fun, but it turns out that I’m ending on a sad note. I was told today that I can no longer donate blood. Ever. It really sucks. I look at that photo, and think “if only I had made one more donation so I could end on an even number”. Frankly, I’m more upset over the inability to donate than I am over now having to figure out what’s wrong with me. It has to do with the protein testing they did after I did a plasma donation, and I don’t know what that means yet.

Maybe it sounds ridiculous, but it really hurts to be told that I can’t do something that is important to me. It meant a lot to me that I could help people in this way.  If I was still living in Vancouver, I could probably still go to netCAD, Canadian Blood Services’ research facility at UBC.  Please, if you can, go make a blood donation at your local blood donor clinic.  If you’re in Canada, you can click on my photo to go to the CBS website.  Your donation can help save someone’s life, and if I can’t do it myself, I will sure as hell encourage everyone I know to do it in my stead.
