Donating Blood

ponta 263 · April 8

Target Language - English

Today, I went to donate blood for the second time. This January, I tried to do but I was interrupted because of a vasovagal reaction (VVR). VVR is a physical reaction triggered by stress such as blood sampling, and it causes feeling sick or blood pressure to drop. I think I was too nervous and had fear for blood last time. Therefore, I took measures VVR, and I could give my blood with no problem this time. I'm feeling refreshed because I could be helpful to people and overcome my weakness.
