Slow blood

October 13, 2021


Ugh. I gave blood yesterday. Previously, Lloyd and I have had some appointments together and he lords over me how runny his blood is. He can give a pint in just over four minutes. I was mortified that it took me nine and a half.

Well, yesterday was worse. Eleven and half minutes. What is wrong with me?? I drank soooo much water, so I know it wasn’t that.

    I have another guess -- Maybe it’s not the thickness of your blood, but the pressure at which it flows through your veins. Do you have low blood pressure? Maybe you need to stress-out a little more before you donate blood and raise the pressure…
