I've been variously told over the years, you're not big enough or healthy enough to give blood. I once asked a doctor if I could have a blood test, as I don't know what group I belong to, and was told it was impractical to give blood tests out just to confirm what group you were part of.

Yes, and it is a lifesaving gift that many of us are able to provide to others.

Yes. Not anymore and if you have not yet donated....DON'T.

It destroys the veins on inner elbow and later when you need to give blood for completion of your yearly physical, you will have to ask for a pediatric phlebotomist(person who draws blood).

This is because now(after having donated blood more than once) the only veins available are very small ones in odd places of your body(wrist, upper arm, forearm, even ankle and inner knee, etc.) .

too many medications and a medical history that makes everyone uncomfortable

I wish I could though.
