It’s Never Too Late to Do Something Good!

First experience is always cool. This morning, I donated my blood for the first time, finally after 21 years I live and after 4 years I’ve been studying in IT Telkom. FYI, in my campus there is a blood donation program from KSR PMI (Korps Sukarela Palang Merah Indonesia) cooperating with UNIT TRANSFUSI DARAH PMI KAB. BANDUNG which is always held every 3 months. And started from two days ago until tomorrow (Dec, 19 – 22, 2011) , It is held again. I decided to try it. Since senior high school most of my friends have ever donate their blood, but me? I always try to deny it. Afraid? Hmm, a little bit but actually I was just concerned of the myths that say “Donate your blood, makes you fatter!” I have no idea since when that myths spread. Even I have to search the information through the internet about the myths, is it really accurate or not. And I realized that the myths aren’t true based on the theory (read here) but still I refused to try it until today.Alhamdulillah, I successfully convinced myself to do this one of noble deeds.

The place

I went there at about 9.30 a.m. this morning with one of my housemate. Then I registered myself to be a blood donor. This is what I got :

Donor card

I was a little bit embarrassed when people asked me “This is your first time?” with a slightly mocking face. But, okay, it’s never too late to do something good (that’s what my housemate told me). Then I started to check my health and

“Your HB is good, your blood pressure is good. Have you had breakfast?”

“Yes, only ketoprak. ” I answered

“Enough sleep last night?” Because to donor your blood you have to get enough sleep a day before, about six hours.

“Yes. “

“Okay, then you’re ready to donor!”

What I feel? I felt so good that time although a bit afraid, why I have to be afraid? I’m not a person that fear of needles and blood. I convinced myself again.

Then I entered the room and yeah, it’s just about ten minutes. I’m happy today yeeey!

This is my blood. Wow, it’s about 250cc!

Healthy dark red blood 😀

And I also got these meals and vitamin

White package

Meals and vitamin,ayeee!

So guys, don’t be afraid to donor your blood. Because a fear can’t prevent us to do good things around,so make your contribution!

At the moment, twicely, I have refused coz my HB and blood pressure, it’s not good ones. Invite me when you wanna do something that “it’s never too late to do something good” 😀
