Saving/improving someone's life via blood transfusion would not be possible without medical... science. :D

So yes. Blood donation successful! Slowly but surely working my way toward my 4-gallon pin, 56 days at a time. :) If doing every darn thing I can in the week preceding an appointment to make sure my iron passes muster is what it takes, and evidently that's the case lately, then that's what it takes. It is entirely worth it.

Donating blood on Earth Day seems right, somehow. I can't entirely articulate that one as yet, but it does.

No one has yet recognized my Franklin (as opposed to Watson and Crick, the thieves) shirt for the reference it is, alas. Wearing it today feels like a tiny dual victory just the same.

This is a very disjointed post. :)

I tried to join the BTS here but was given such grief given my past and my trans status (excuse after excuse why not) that I gave up trying.

That still grinds with me. :o(

Bravo, bravo!

I was a regular and enthusiastic donor for many decades, but now I have a condition which often makes me anemic if I miss my meds and which I think would disqualify me anyway. Oh well, I can still take satisfaction in the gallons that I have given.
