    On April 1st I gave blood at my local fire department and I finally got the card today that has my blood type. I’m O negative, which means that my blood can be received by any one. Really it’s not to surprising because my mom is O negative as well. She has given almost two gallons of blood so far. I don’t know why I find my blood type so interesting. I like medical things I fined the body fascinating and I like abscesses with all that puss I realy don know why it’s sort of the sic part of me.

    O negative...is that the type where you can only receive o negative if you needed blood, but you can give to every other type?

    Yep, I am O neg too.
    Also, if you are pregnant, O positive can be fatal to a baby without meds I think!

    Really? My mom has given blood fore years and they sometimes say she has golden vanes. We also always get calls from the Red Cross for her to come in and give blood because her blood is in high demand. Are you sure?

    maybe I should restate that O- is most in demand, and AB+ least popular or just not as in demand not necessarily greedy [​IMG]

    But of course blood donations of all types are most welcome of course.
