Had to eat today :-(

#1
Am on day 2 and totally forgot that I'd booked an appointment to give blood today. REALLY didn't want to miss it as I missed my last one and couldn't do the one before that due to just starting medication. And the previous few I was either pregnant or still with a less than 9 month baby. Wait any longer and I would be classed as a new starter and lose my credit gained so far!

Anyway, I was fine giving. Went and sat down for my cuppa after and blow me, blood pressure dropped and I had to go lie down. Of course after that I wasn't allowed a hot drink and had to have squash and 2 biscuits. Grrrrrrr :mad:

I know it wasn't a me-being-weak-moment but I'm still annoyed.
Never mind. A little blip. Will just have strengthened my resolve not to fail again.

Aww sorry to hear that hope you are okay now. Did you tell the nurse you are on LT. I have heard that you shouldn't give blood while on vlc diets, well due to lack of calories! I'd like to know the answer as I am a regular donor, at least you are only on day 2 and can get straight back on it, you will still have a good loss this week. Good luck x

Put it behind you, don't worry, it couldn't be helped and your health is too important to worry too much!
Next time could you take a shake to have after donating?

Not to worry hun, couldnt be helped and your health is more important. Might not affect you too much since you have just started, straight back on it and you will be in ketosis in no time.

I hope it hasn't ruined this week. I really need that BIG first week loss to keep me motivated.

RachieRoo...I think it depends on who is taking your details on the day. I rang the helpline when I was on LL and they said no problem. Others have turned up and be told no. Personally I don't tell them. Just make sure I have a pack just before i go and drink lots. It's the first time it's happened to me on a vlcd, but it has happened other times. Well done for giving though.:)

ahhh thats good news then. I should be finished with LT next time my donation is due (june) but i did think that actually,I could sit down after my donation at the little table with the little old couple serving tea and biccies (bless 'em) and have a black tea and flapjack... yummy!!! haha!! Thanks and you...think I'm on my 16th donation now (I only started doing it cos my work used to allow us to do it in work time! an hour out of work? - yes please!!! Not in this current climate though - funny that!) No I think everyone should give blood do it if they can - i lost my mum to cancer so I know how much it is needed. (apologies I'm rambling now!) x

Aww! Wouldn't sweat it babe! You probably werent in keytosis anyway yet and it probably wasn't much carbs either. So hopefully it won't have much of an effect.

Actually, I need to give blood soon, but the last time was really bad....a 2 hour wait, then they tried twice in my left arm (OUCH!) before finally takeing it from my right arm, then they nearly stopped as it was coming out too slow!!! I've given for 30 years now (except for 2 pregancies) and have to say that last time has put me off a bit..........

Make an appointment if you can, and try to go during the day as it's quieter then. But please go back and give more....stocks are always low.
Thanks
