There was a place to give blood in the town where i co to school so about 30 people decided to go.(you have to be 17 so at max about 70 could go)most peoples excuse was it will make me squimish!
Anyway i go and i was talking to the nurse and she asked did i have any medical conditions and i said i had a heart murmur which i have to have antibiotics for if i need to get a tooth pulled out or something like that.I was then told i couldn't give blood ever!It was to protect me.
Before you ask a heart murmur is the valves in my heart are a bit leaky and let through blood back when they shouldn't.Its nothing serious to my knowledge it hasn't efected me since i was about 6.The only thing i have had within the last 6 years is in P.E i was sick after running long distance.
