    Wheres everyone going to get bloods drawn? I was giving blood via nhs but they’ve given me the elbow.

    Iv seen kits you can get to do it at home but don’t fancy doing it myself as I’ll only fuck it up.

    I know a company called E-val do it but it’s to far way from me.

    I need to get rbc down but kinda fooked if I can’t give blood/have it drawn.

    why have the NHS given you the elbow?

    I donate at Blood UK, and if need to lower blood thickness more i drive to Strom and get the nurse to take another pint out.

    No idea never gave me a reason. Logged in and it said that I’m not eligible to give blood until 2023!!! Probably something came up in my bloods more than likely steroid related.
