Well I thought I would be a humanitarian today and donate some plasma at this place. I wen't in and went to the registration desk and let them know. Well after goin through all the tests and paperwork and screening.. I finally got to the part where they take the blood. My lucky day! They had a woman training another woman how to do this for her first time! Well... needless to say, she jabbed me and that hurt. They had trouble getting the pressure needed to get the blood flow right and realized that she "infiltrated" the vain. ( Punched through both sides of the vain) Well the lady doing the training decided she would do it and try on the other arm. Well after much "There we go" and "We got it this time" I got a "OMG I think we infiltrated this one too!". Uhhgg! Well now both my arms are sore, they couldnt give me the blood back like they were supposed to do and I feel drained. What exactly was I thinking? Former NAVY taught me "Never Again Volenteer Again". Well I will have to think about doin that one again.. ... Ouch!

You might have at least gotten paid for it. I've seen adds in the classifieds, and talked to someone who's done it. He said, "It hurts." My opinion was that I didn't know which was dirtier, having sold one's body or the profits made off volunteers' donations.

I use to work at one. Up front where they register you and do the paper work. Sorry it turned out the way it did.

Does that help any? lol
Most of the time it's not that bad. Hopefully next time you'll get someone who knows what they are doing and it'll be a better experience.

Sounds like you wandered into
the blood bank equivalent
of the $2 haircut barber school.

Just for future ref~~You are NOT obligated to be anyones 'training' object. All you have to say is "I've been there & done that and NO THANKS". You don't have to give any reasons, either....NO thanks is enough (even if you have veins the size of a garden hose. It's just the way it is. Let them poke on someone else.

Ha Ha! So.. ya.. lets just say I avoid the trainee's. Expecially when they have sharp pointy things!
