I was thinking about donate blood and organ.

This is important, just think about other people with a disease or an illness that need an organ transplant or about a car accident victim that need a blood transfusion. And then think how you'll feel proud for having saved a human life.
Donating organs/blood should be something that cames from your heart, done for personal satisfaction, not for money.
That's why I hate all this people involved in illegal organ traffics, they should be sent in jail lifetime.

About me, I would like to donate blood, but I'm a bit scared by needles in veins, but I'm more intentioned to do it.
About organs, maybe I'll donate them after death, since I don't think I'll need them in my grave, if they can be helpful in any manner, do it.
I must admit if I'm alive and a family member need a liver or kidney transplant, I'm not sure I'll donate because I'm scared that my life couldn't be the same after it.

How about you? Do you donate/donated blood or organ? what do you think about this?

I have "Organ Donor" on my driver license and I try to donate blood when I can. I'm not scared of needles, since I've grown up around them(both of my parents are nurses). Though, the needle they use when you donate blood is f*cking huge.

Funny how your name has "donor" under it!

Donating blood would make me feel like a little factory. The reason my body produces blood is because I need it for myself. If I start tapping blood out of it, what's the difference between me and a bunch of bacteria transferring glucose into ethanol? Everyone can donate what they want of course, I won't prevent anyone from tapping anything from their body. I would donate blood if I can see the result myself. That means I'd donate blood if a loved one, a friend or a family member can live longer because of it. Mindlessly donating blood to the nearest hospital just seems a bit useless. I don't even know my blood type to begin with XD

About donating organs, it's true you can't really take them with you into the afterlife if there is an after life. Just like you can't take your money with you, it's best to make use of what you have and can't use huh

I've never donated blood... but I should do.

As for organs, in the UK you have to opt-in (so you have to actually say that you want your organs to be donated when you die, and if you don't opt-in your organs don't get donated), which I have done.
Personally I think that an opt-out system would be much better (everyone's organs are donated after they die unless they say they don't want them to be).

That's exactly what they suggested doing in this country, I'm not sure whether or not the law got through yet. I guess it makes no difference in the end because there'll always be a family member who doesn't want your body to be robbed of all its juices. You obviously can't decide anymore when you're dead, but your family and your partner can always change your decision. At least that's what it's like here.

I'm not sure I'm even allowed to donate blood due to my health issues. However, I definitely will donate organs after I die. I have had three good friends with a disease called cystic fibrosis, which is basically a clogging of the lungs (and pancreas) with mucous. This winds up stressing the various other systems in the body, and a lung transplant is required to extend life. The median age of death (with or without transplant) is about 36, however, most tx patients believe it's worth it.

Cfkitty an Inherited Gentic Defect - my late friend Stephanie, who got through two lung txs but died at 21.

Organ donation is very close to me.

I have donated twice in my life, both at a blood drive that my school has and I have to say that I almost passed out the first time I saw the needle. All the while I was thinking "what have I gotten myself into!". It actually doesn't hurt once they get the needle in, but apparently it was some in-training nurse doing mine, as she yelled over to the other head nurse "am I doing this right?!?!?"

Anyway, all's well that ended well, and I felt good about doing it. Definitely the right thing to do if you are able to give.

I'm not sure if I am supposed to be donating blood because I was born premature(At 27 weeks, if anyone wants to do the math) and I had probably 12 blood transfusions and my blood type actually changed from A+ to A- because of all of the transfusions. When I donated blood at Boy Scout summer camp last year, my dad said they might not let me donate because I had all of those transfusions, but they let me donate. As for the needle not hurting when it is in your arm, that is because you only have nerves on your skin. You don't have any below your skin.

That'd scare the crap out of me. There is fairly little that really makes me scared. Needles on the other hand freak me out. So if someone would do that to me I'd be out of there.

I probably would let my organs to be transplanted but I'll pass on the blood donations.

That is never a good thing for anyone. I know I would have liked that better though then sitting there for 2 hours at the platlette startion and know I was feeling weaker and weaker and come to find out the idiot that did nine did not take in the return needle. So when they removed the blankets I was covered in blood, and had lost quite a bit. It has taken me a while to be willing to give again after that. I had been going there for about a year ever month or so (when they called and said I could again).

Every month? Doesn't that permanently lower your stamina if you're always low on blood?

you do not give blood, you give platletts. They take the blood out, run it through a machine, and then pump it back in, like dialisis in a way, they end up taking only a few Tb of Yellow Goo. but that day I did not get my blood back. They walked me across the street, were you get lunch for donating, and had some EMTs watch me for a long time....

I don't have the age to do that, and I probably never will donate blood, since my type is AB+.

That is why I donate Plattlets. It never matters what type, They need platlets for anyone that is having surgury that will not be able to clot well.

I've nvr rly donated blood, but I did get some blood taken a little while back to see if I had something can't rem what it was, I believe they used the same needle for donating blood, well that did hurt just a bit but what I did was grasp my chair's handle with the arm that didn't have the needle, and then not look at what she was doing, it wasn't actually that bad, after a little while I started freaking out and sweating because she took like 5 viles of it lol, but after wards I was fine!

I've never donated blood, but now thinking for donating organs, like a kidney, well, I will probably do it if the life of a close person depended on that, let's say my parents or one of my uncles. Anyway, when I get my driving license or any other document, I'll sign as a donor.

It's on my health card that I am an organ donor. (Maybe on my driver's license as well!) I've never given blood...even a blood test makes me queasy!

Why is a life that you know worth more than a life you don't know?

When you give blood it is given to someone in need. The hospitals do not just hide it away and laugh at all the people giving it because 'they fooled us.' So I do not see why it is useless. People die every minute of every day, and you could possibly save a life...I don't find that useless.

I gave blood this year. It was 10 minutes of my life, and well worth it. I felt really good knowing that my blood might help someone fight a disease or a car accident victim recover. It is just a great thing to do.

Remember: You are making blood cells every second of every day, they come back, but when someone is dead, they are not coming back.

Yeah, it's definitely not useless just because you don't see the effects; someone will and victims of injury and illness always need blood. It could you next who gets hit by a car and uses blood that has been donated after all.

I do it fairly regularly, probably not as often as I should, but at least two or three times a year. If you ask nicely they'll give you a cup of tea and a biscuit as well - everybody wins!
