    Don't know. I failed my last blood test. Should have played less COD and did more revision.

    I realise that. Hence the 'don't take my blood' comment
    Oh right sorry I misinterpreted it!

    I'm not a donor because under Spanish law I can't (I must be 18 first), plus I take some medication and even if it is not important, they would probably reject me.

    But I really want to.

    That's the theory. In practice, Spanish authorities won't allow me to donate blood.
    By having lived abroad, I believe British authorities won't let me either.

    Do you mean your parents are A and B (in which case they could be AO/BO or AA/BB or any combination). You're unlikely to know their exact genotypes unless you know all your grandparents blood types (and their genotypes) too.
    Well my mum is A, my dad is B and my sister's O so i just assumed....

    (please correct me if my assumption is wrong, biology is not my strong point )

    I know what you mean. :-)

    I have 0- too.

    We can give blood to everybody but can only receive 0-, which is by the way the rarest type. But that is the reason for me to donate my blood. I don´t get money for it but a friendly smile, kind words and something to eat and drink for free. :-) It is just enough for me to save lives with just a few of my own blood, which I can give for free. I would engage everybody to do that. Maybe you will be in bthe situation that you will need it some time.

    So I change the poll. who of you donates blood?

    Meee! Though I'm absolutely petrified of needles, hence why I can only do it once in a while when I get my confidence up to do it. It's such a good feeling if you do get to do it, even if I feel a wee bit sick after it cos I hate blood etc. Oh, and make sure you're not extremely skinny like me and end up feeling dead after it. They do numerous checks and stuff on you but make sure you're actually physically fit to do it. If I can do it, anyone can My friend really wanted to do it, and tried her best to push her weight up a few pounds so she could get her badge, they figured her out tho haha. But I didn't get my badge though, I'm still raging :nope:

    I really want to know what blood type I am, though can't seem to find it on any documents or anything... My parents blood types basically mean I could be any of them!!

    ...how do I find out/what documents is everyone looking at to know their blood type?
