Morning!

What is recommended after giving blood; eating & drinking something? If so what?

Thanks!




If you keep doing what you've always done, and you keep getting what you've aways got, perhaps it's time for a change...

For myself...I take a bottle of premixed cranberry juice with water or I make up some celery juice.  Depending on how much time I have taken to prepare myself.  Last week it was the cranberry juice.  And then I come home and have a meal with animal protein and a big plate of veggies.  

At our blood donor clinic it is quite hard to resist the goodies that are there because the wife of the man in charge of it bakes everything homemade for it.  Squares, cookies, fudge, butter tarts, etc.  I've been able to resist for years now though...thanks to BTD/GTD.   Last week when we were there a woman asked me how I could pass up these little treats and I tried to tell her about BTD, etc. and got the far away, not interested look...so I stopped.  Then, I just replied...and because my blood loves me for it.   But...there was an upside...although this woman was not listening another one was and I saw her on the street on Monday and she inquired about it.  I gave her the website, told her I have books if she wants to borrow them or that she could go to the library.  
This wasn't the first time this had happened where one was not interested and one was.

Anything.  Last time I had some grape juice and that was good enough.  But I do usually get light headed if they take more than a vial.  For my thyroid one I thought I'd be fine, so I didn't take anything with me.  Well, she took 3 vials out and I got real light headed.  Then she gave me that grape juice and it was like.  BAM.  The light headedness went away within a minute or two of drinking it.  But for me, that was a lot of sugar.  I don't usually drink that stuff.  I was pleased that it didn't have corn syrup in it too.

When I donate blood I always take a bottle of water from home and an Unibar to eat. As long as I'm eating something the volunteers using don't make a comment and as least I can resist all the packaged cookies.

Black cherry juice is mentioned in LRFYT I believe.  I somtimes bring it with me to create some curiosity with the staff and other donors.
