My blood is worthless.
As most of you know my story you will understand why this situation angered and frustrated me: My little part time under the table job dried up and after much thought I had thought I had come up with a perfect way to make a few bucks. When I returned to college I listened to a couple of fellow students would told me about a blood clinic that paid money for blood and how they all supplemented their incomes with a little "blood money". I do not know why I had forgotten that but I had until I dreamed about it and thought it was the perfect way to make a little of what I needed. I do not like the idea of "selling" blood but it seemed harmless as this was for research not for transfusions and it did help out in the long one so I did it whenever I was in need of cash.I probable did it for about 6 months until they hired a new doc who after asking me to do a physical refused to take my blood simply saying that I had an aneurysm so no more giving blood. Yesterday I went back to the clinic and asked if I could resume giving blood for cash. With the new computer era records last forever and it said no on a folder 7 years old! I met with the doctor and we talked for almost two whole hours!!!!!She was delightful and could not believe I had survived all that I had. I tried my best to smooze her into letting me donate for cash. When we finally got done I asked her why I could not,she explained that the company could not afford a lawsuit if another aneurysm burst while giving blood. I have lived through twelve operations including several brain surgeries, survived thirty car accidents, survived being shot, with rock salt, being cut, being jailed, being poor et al and all of the sudden my very blood was worthless? OY vey iss mere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! E
