My first time was super smooth Only got stuck once, didn't feel much Did sting a bit at first and randomly in the middle Did get a bit anxious, and felt a little faint maybe the first 5 minutes since I'm kinda afraid of needles Felt normal after that I was only attached for 45 minutes Felt great for the rest of the day Hope next time I go it's good If you're thinking about it, go for it

I only eat fried chicken basically, rarely drink water, and didn’t eat for 30 hours My first time donating I was in the chair for an hour I’m gonna eat better and drink lots of water cuz I don’t want that thing in my arm for longer than 30

great video, very informative, I just happen to have a few questions if you did happen to go over them in any previous video up to this point I start off by asking if your eating has changed at all during donating, do you space out the donation dates in order to allow yourself enough recovery time, are you able to work out before and or after donating, do you find driving difficult after the donation, and lastly how is this by end of the year show up on your tax return? Thanks

Definitely I would rather work overtime 8 hours then selling my plasma for it is not healthy in the long run It’s side effects

The large orange butterfly needle Grifols uses are 17g I've heard we occasionally use 16g, but I've never seen them The COVID program has officially ended, vaccinated or not

But does it hurt? The process of the blood going out then back in?

People please do not believe the lie plasma donation places tell you that there are only minor, short term affects from donating plasma I donated off and on for a few years, sometimes for many months at a time During that last year, every time I donated for a month straight, I started to get very sick with infections I would get UTIs, viruses, etc anything I was exposed to, I would pick it up and my body had a very hard time fighting the illness It’s now 2 years since I stopped and I am now dealing with 2 serious types of infections in my body, both of which could potentially lead to cancer And I am not someone who got sick a lot before starting the plasma donating I had a very strong immune system and very rarely ever got sick I don’t know if my body will ever get back to the healthy state it was at before I donated This country is the only country that allows plasma donations 8 times a month Everywhere else it is 2 times a month Once every 2 weeks The government doesn’t care if poor people that donate plasma get sick and even die from it because they are considered a drain on the system anyway So please think twice before donating your plasma Many years down the road, you very well could have a serious illness as a direct result of it

Comment from : Valerie Stewart

What are some examples of low fat meals you or others eat right before you donate? Just curious I’m seriously looking into this but I’m honestly terrified lol

Comment from : Krishanne Russell

Home grown Gamer
I’m considering donating, getting into it anyways That said, I don’t actually understand what all I need ahead of time Like… a doner’s identification(not a clue how to get that) and other things like that, is there just a place I can go to where they’d suit me up with everything I need? Or is it gonna be a hassle to do thatbrI’m about a 210 pound 18 year old, mind you, if that makes a difference

Why do so many people talk about getting paid I don't get paid anything but I guess it's different in New Zealand

Chris Zablocki
Can we put into perspective what 350 bottles of plasma equates to? Is it approximately an entire man's body weight in plasma, for example

Donating right now is great, they are paying a lot more Just keep in mind that doing this long term WILL leave scars I wasn't warned I feel my arms look like I shot drugs or something

Coconut water is my life source More hydrating than water Stay away from electrolyte drinks The added Salt/sugar dehydrates 200lbs, 43 min average donation time A steady hand pump helps Very light though, no need to go hard Think of it as a pumpi try to synchronize my hand with my heart I meditate Headphones and heart chakra meditation music Shell fish is my go to recovery meal The iron/protein is unmatched

Jessica H
In Dallas, they only pay $25-40 per donation 😐 I can't donate anymore because I have auto-antibodies They have used smaller gauge butterfly needles on me because my veins roll, it just makes donation take longer I did it because my dad had lymphoma, most cancer patients need blood products at some point I still recommend it if your health allows
Comment from : Jessica H

Dave Y
The best part for me personally is the recovery It may sound weird, but I generally get the best sleep after donating Stress levels low, body is tired, and I'm tired mentally

Comment from : Adam Burton

Kathleen Bishop
Today was my second donation and I am deadly afraid of needles but the needle you showed is not the size they used on me the needle they used on me was really small and I barely felt it , I made 200 dollars today donating , bc i made 140 and since a friend referred me they paid him 150 and we split that so i made about 215 today and it was awesome! I felt so tired after the first donation though Feel real drained right now as well
Comment from : Kathleen Bishop

OG Goku
Ive been donating for one month now and it not bad at all The only concern you should have is your fear of needles if you have one The first time takes about 2-3 hours after that its pretty quick the other times you go The workers are nice and friendly and always make sure you are feeling well Make sure to drink water and eat good meals (protein and iron with no fat specifically) As long as you take care of yourself before and after you donate you will be fine The longest ive sat in a chair during donating is about 45 minutes Time flies when you are on your phone I bring headphones so i can play games and listen to my own music Edit: oh yeah I forgot to mention my payment was always deposited by the time I walked back out to my car so thats another big thumbs up
Comment from : OG Goku

is there an option to numb the area of your arm where they insert the needle beforehand? i know children’s hospitals use some sort of a spray that numbs the area of your arm where they plan to insert the needle beforehand i personally feel like it would be very helpful to have the numbing spray for my arm since i hate needles so much
Comment from : softbun

I donated for the first time today They were really friendly when I went in I weigh about 153 lb and I was able to donate 833 ml The first time the whole process took about two and a half hours They said the next time will only take about an hour I will definitely do it again but I get dizzy if they have to readjust the needle 😳🥴

Long term donor here Make sure you drink lots of water going in or you'll bruise, your veins are harder to find, and it'll be painful (especially if they have to dig) Eat at least a few hours before and eat after Not fatty foods or you could be cut short of your donation fatty plasma can't be processed, and you'll be sent home I've seen skinny people go through this more often than overweight people so be aware DO NOT drink alcohol before or after donation oo I cracked open a beer an hour after donating once and passed out Don't smoke at least an hour before you go in it'll constrict your veins The first few times you go in the donation process will take longer I saw a guy in there for an hour and a half his first time my first was 55 minutes I got my time down to about 35 minutes Hydration should start the day before and it's best to donate in the evening because most likely you will be wiped out for the rest of the day

Do they leave the metal needle or the plastic needle in
Comment from : Jamison Rafael Alvarado

Roro Hiker
I’ve had all kinds of experiences while donating plasma Philly week or drained and lightheaded to actually passing out which just happened two weeks ago I’ve had the phlebotomist stick me in correctly and left a 5 inch bruise/hematoma, which put me behind and donation because that hematoma can turn into a blood clot when they administer the anticoagulation medicationbrStay well hydrated 48 hours prior to donating Also I have made a habit of eating nuts and yogurt right before I donate sometimes a banana dipped in pecans Replacing the electrolytes is important so I would consider taking a supplement or like I did today I ate a half a watermelon, some yogurt some freshly squeezed orange juice with Himalayan salt I should feel 100 by morning brDefinitely gives me the spending money that I need to have a little bit of fun

Thankfully I never feared needles

I work in dialysis and an 18g needle is big but it’s not the biggest We actually use 15 gauge needles on a regular basis Some of our patients even use 14g needle But for a regular vein an 18g needle is big!

Good video! Also, another thing to mention is that the Covid bonus only works if you haven't received a vaccine So if you had Covid and already got a vaccine, you're not eligible for that bonus
