    Just taking this out of the BG3 thread. I can't see any "message" option - am I blind or is this because of mobile layout?

      If you're on mobile, see the left-most icon of the narrow black band at the bottom of the screen. Touch it, and then touch new message. (In the first field, enter the name of the recipient and in the lower box, your message.) And that's it! :)

      Thanks Rik. I haven't even tried this on mobile but with my old school phone I would have a hard time seeing it anyway. :)

      Heheh. Thanks, they told me they couldn't keep enough of my blood type on the shelf. :) Maybe somebody will make will make good use of it at least. Alot of my family lives 'down the mountain' from me on the coast here in NC, and they've got a potential Cat 4 hurricane aiming for a direct hit on Thursday so they just might.

      Kudos! I missed the "blood bus" when it came to work last time. I've only just started to donate blood and feel bad that I missed this one. That's amazing work you've done Zaghoul!

      @skatan Thanks. Kind of a good feeling after in a way, ain't it (well, if ya take it easy afterwards anyways that is). :)

      The first time I did it, well so far the only time since I missed the second time, I felt weak for liike four days afterwards. It was a strange fatigue I had never felt before. Do you get used to it or do you still feel the same @Zaghoul?

      On whole blood donations I usually took just a day or so to recover but I switched to double red donations some time back. I like those much better. They use an apheresis machine that most RC's have. It extracts your RBC's and then returns everything else to you, with the addition of a little saline so that you really have no loss in total fluid volume like whole blood donations. With these I feel about the same as I went in afterwards. Takes maybe 30 min, but really is the quickest recovery. Lots of extra fluids and iron rich foods may help the day you donate and all day after for whole blood donations. Check to see if they do doubles where you are. It really is the best and gets ya front line status on the wait time. :)

      OK, I'm still very novice so haven't heard about that. Not sure if they do that here. Maybe I'll ask them next time around. Do you have an uncommon blood type?

      I'm actually a universal donor, O. But the RC ran short this year for some reason and needs alot.

      The RC was doing a promotion for $5 Amazon Gift cards for those that donated this last time, but they just sent me one for $15 instead. Not sure if it was because they were low on type O blood or because I did a double, but it was a nice surprise.
