I received an email yesterday concerning the blood drive our church is sponsoring. I've always wanted to give and everytime I've inquired about it, I've been met with a negative response due to the diabetes issue.
There was a number to call on the email so just for grins I gave it a ring. The person to whom I spoke said as long as your blood sugar was reasonably stable and your sliding scale hadn't changed in the last couple of weeks type 1's are good to go.
Wow, after all the years of hearing 'no' I'm finally hearing 'yes'. So now I'm in a quandry. Do I give or not?
So this morning I'm wondering if any other type 1's have given and if you experienced any adverse effects. Whether you have or haven't I'd love to hear your opinion.
