The Red Cross is relentless about getting me in every two months or so to drain me of another installment of B- (CMV-free, thank you). I have tried to do this consistently for the last thirty years as one of the ways I try to work off the many points I have no doubt accumulated on my license, so to speak. This time, I failed to drink enough water before donating and wound up dangerously close to passing out--complete with the shakes, cold sweat, and that sudden, dizzy feeling. The staff was quick to spot my slide and before I knew, my feet were up, I was getting fanned, and being fed enough apple juice to tank up an entire first grade class. Lesson learned.
