I was so close to passing out today after I donated blood and it really is making me rethink whether I should keep doing it. I want to so badly, itís like one of the very few good deeds I can do, but it always bodies me for at least a day and this is the second time itís made me almost pass out.

Do you schedule when you donate or is it more spur of the moment? If it is the former, you can prepare for it by making sure you've eaten and drank a lot of water; and if you already do this maybe you could increase your intake and it would make you feel better? Do they do the iron test when you are signing in? It could also be possible you have mild anemia, but I would think they'd catch that.

It is great what you are doing, but you have to make sure you're safe. Could be worth taking to your doctor/someone from one of the donating centers about it if you do decide to continue.
