I weight too little to be allowed to do it. Not that I'm desperately underweight or anything; I'm just short.
I'm secretly relieved about this because I'm squeamish, can't stand the sight of blood and hate needles. Despite these things, if I were eligible I would feel insanely guilty if I didn't give blood. It's such a generous thing to do.
As soon as I put on more weight(pretty inevitable I suppose. ) I'll give blood as soon as I get the opportunity.

No, I refuse to donate unless I am given the choice of the type of person the donation goes to.
The idea of my blood and/or organs sustaining the life of somebody I would actively despise puts me off donating.
If the NHS allowed me to give them a criteria list with my donation then I'd be happy to. Until then, junkies and other such scum won't be getting a drop.
I'll happily donate if a friend or family member needs it. Otherwise, the system just doesn't work for me.
