    Blood shortage

    No, I didn't cut myself

    Word is that the Red Cross & other blood collection organizations are experiencing severe shortages due to the cancellation of blood drives.

    If you are working reduced hours (as I am) and eligible to donate, please find your local donation center - nearest hospital or EMS provider can probably help you with that if there is no large organization like Red Cross in your area.

    If the news is getting you down, take a break and do something good while the world goes mad scrounging up TP.

    They won't take mine due to the immune-suppressants in my system. Same thing with bone marrow donation. I've tried.

    Yup, too many vaccinations, too much exposure in too many Gawd-awful places. I filled out the questionnaire to donate years ago and they said "thank you but no thank you".
