A wave of shockness flown threw my body my chest my universe I finally passed but wait my iron what if that stops me? I thought.
The guy in the blue suit yes he had a blue new York blood center uniform.
He takes a tiny prick of blood from my finger puts it in some machine it beeps really loudly. ''Did I pass do I have enough iron?'' I ask him awaiting his response.
'' yes your ok he then sends me to the donor bed I cant believe it I passed I'm donating blood still a tad bit of all those thoughts I had in my head earlier the nurse tells me to calm down that its gonna be ok alright Diana that's was her name I trust you I think but I just respond ok . She inserts the needle I n my arm this is it I say as the blood follows down the stream into the pint of blood bag theres no turning back your saving a life steph and your not gonna die or pass out or anything like that. I Feel fine the whole thing as the blood flew the bag. After it was done it took longer than fifteen minutes went in there around 150 didn't leave till 240 but it was worth it . After the bag was filled and Diana took out the needle from my bruised right arm I felt so happy smiles on my face a joy of happiness I did it. Long story short I asked Diana a whole bunch of questions just to be safe. :)
It was done everyone had asked if I was ok even one of my bosses ''im fine I don't feel dizzy shockingly like most people do I feel fine''. I sit down on the food table and drink apple juice and a bag of pretzels. Me and my boss and the NY blood center talk about how I cant donate till September 28th.
I'm ok with It I told them I might do it again in October or November at the hospital or at my schools blood drive. We smile I walked out the room with happiness also they gave me some snacks to take home and a ice pack for my bruised up arm. I saved 3 lives today and that's something! something that took years months but it was worth it and I encourage everyone to donate blood if you can! save that life.
