I had a weirdly fulfilling time at the blood-center. The staff was super-sweet ("Oh! You're so pretty! You look like Mariah Carey!"- flattery is always helpful!) and very well-trained. I have donated a few times, but this was my first platelet donation. It wasn't quite what I expected and there are some very strange sensations that come with it, but it wasn't what I would describe as unpleasant. In fact, it was probably the most pleasant donation experience I have had yet. I was warmed by blankets, I got to see that new(ish) movie "The Hunter", I was complimented on my hair, and of course, I helped save lives. I had a great experience and will definitely donate as soon as I am able again. Thanks RedX!
