A new experience..

I've given platelets for years and never had this happen...today the collection site started to hurt, I started sweating, and I really just wanted to get out of there.

I finally had them stop the collection (they had enough for two units, but they always go a little over). Then I was dumb and got up too fast. I started to fade out and they had me lie back down. I think if I hadn't, I would have passed out.


Wow! The nurses speculate that I was dehydrated and maybe not well rested. Hmmm.
