    :smt017 I don't honestly know. My first reaction is NO...but if a crucial moment came up...well.. :smt003 ...Depends on who's giving the blood. I wouldn't fancy a strangers blood injected into my arm...(knowing all the diseases out there...and frankly I don't trust the medical practises & the 'so-called' scanning, that is supposed to take place) :smt012

    I'd rather die right then & there, than to be infected with another person's filthy 'diseased' blood.


    Here's another question....would or have you ever given blood?..
    I haven't and probably never will. For a loved one yes, but I refuse to donate it to the blood bank. :smt003 Selfish I know.. :smt003

    Personally, I would not accept a blood transfusion, except from someone in my immediate family. Unfortunately, no one in my immediate family has a blood type that is compatable with mine. There is no way in hell that I would accept a blood transfusion, even if in dire need, from the hospital.

    I used to give blood all of the time. My views in this subject have changed drammatically since then, however, and now I do not give my blood any more.

    On a related note; in college, I sold my plasma for money! :nono

    I would and almost had too. Giving birth to my 1st son, I almost bled to death. The blood was hung on my IV stand and everything. I had no desire to die and not see him say his first word, first steps, laughing, playing, getting married, grandchildren - all of that went through my mind in a split second. I had never even thought about it before, not for a second. But when faced with death, I didn't hesitate. I heard the doctor tell the nurse to call down for it and when I looked down, the doctor, the nurses and my bed were soaked in blood.

    I've never been in that situation so i can say no right now, but if i was i'd probably do the same....
