squee!

giving, receiving

For many years, I've been wanting to donate blood, but postponing out of sheer, stomach-clenching, consciousness-threatening, nausea-inducing needle phobia.

So I feel pretty fucking awesome that I gave blood for the first time today, didn't pass out, or even feel particularly freaked out, and look forward to doing so again.

Pretty fucking awesome.
