Be Nice To Me : I donated Blood :)

Image

There was a drive of Blood Donation at our Office yesterday (21 Feb 2014)..
I donated Whole Blood .. And it feels nice.. πŸ™‚

Naah..!! I am not a first timer.. Last time I gave blood was 3 yrs back I guess..

I feel bad, when my HB doesn’t matches to their requirement of donating blood…

Here I am mentioning some things about Donating Blood.. Hope it helps someone, to feel and go for their first Blood Donation πŸ™‚

World Blood Donor Day : 14 June

Image Why blood donation ?

  • According to WHO

Safe blood saves lives and improves health. Blood transfusion is needed for:
Image Women with complications of pregnancy, such as ectopic pregnancies and hemorrhage before, during or after childbirth;
Image Children with severe anemia often resulting from malaria or malnutrition;
Image People with severe trauma following accidents; and
Image Many surgical and cancer patients.
Image It is also needed for regular transfusions for people with conditions such as Thessalonian and sickle cell disease and is used to make products such as clotting factors for people with hemophilia.

Image Every three seconds, someone needs a blood transfusion!
Image 20 percent of recipients are children – many are cancer patients!
Image Giving blood is 100 percent safe!
Image One pint of blood from one donor can save up to three lives!
Image About 60 percent of the population are eligible to donate blood, yet less than 4 percent do!
Image At least 500 pints of blood must be collected every day to meet the needs of area patients.
Image We import more than 20 percent of our blood supply.
Image If donors gave two to four times a year, it would prevent blood shortages.

  • Me ^_^

Image By donating blood we help others and in a way the whole of society. For us, its just 10 mints but for people who need, its their hope…and can save their life..
Image Its FREE, so we don’t have to worry for any fee/charges to apply for donating Blood.
Image We as a women can give blood three times a year.. whereas Men can give four times a year. 3-4 is just a small number, try to achieve it πŸ™‚
Image One donation can help lives of upto three People

Image

ImageTypes of Blood donation

  • Whole Blood Donation

Image

: This is the most common type of donation which approximately a pint of ‘whole blood’ is given.
: This type of blood donation usually takes about an hour, though the actual donation takes about 8-10 minutes.
: You are eligible to donate ‘whole blood’ every 56 days.

  • Platelet Apheresis

Image

: During this type of donation, an apheresis machine collects the platelets and some plasma and returns the red cells and most of the plasma back to the donor.
: Platelets are a vital element of cancer and organ transplant treatments, as well as many surgical procedures as they help prevent massive blood loss.
: A single donation of platelets collected by apheresis can constitute one or several transfusable units, while it takes about four to six whole blood donations to constitute a single transfusable unit of platelets.
: The donation takes approximately one and-a-half to two and-a-half hours.

  • Plasma Apheresis

Image

: Plasma is collected simultaneously with a platelet donation.
: During a plasma apheresis donation, the blood is collected by a machine, which separates the plasma, red cells and platelets and returns the red cells and/or platelets back to the donor.
: While donors with Type AB blood can only give red cells to other Type AB recipients, they are the universal plasma donors. The β€˜right type’ donation for AB donors may be an apheresis donation of plasma or plasma and platelets.
: The donation takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.

  • Double Red Cells

Image

: Double red cell donation is done with the help of an apheresis machine which collects the red cells but returns most of the plasma and platelets to the donor.
: red cells are the most transfused blood component, and certain blood types are often in short supply.
: Double red cell donations from Type O donors and donors with Rh-negative blood types play a very important role in maintaining blood supply levels.
: Donors need to meet slightly higher hemoglobin and body height/weight requirements in order to be able to give a double red cell donation.
: Double red cell donations take approximately 30 minutes longer than a whole blood donation and allow you to give two units of red cells.

ImageImage First time Donor ?

Image Before you donate blood, you should have HB level.
Image Each donor receives a brief examination for :
temperature
pulse
blood pressure
blood count (HB) are measured
Other Questions ?
Image All equipment is sterile; needles are used only once and then discarded.
Image Drink plenty of water or fruit juice the night and morning before you donate.
Image Eat three hours prior to the donation.
Image Afraid of Needle..? : Take a deep breath before the needle goes in, or pinch yourself to create a distraction.
Image Expect to be asked to rest sitting down for 10 to 20 minutes after giving blood.
Image Have a snack after the donation.
Image Avoid driving if you feel the least bit faint.
Image Eat a meal high in protein after your donation
Image Refrain from drinking alcohol for at least 8 hours after giving blood.
Image Excuse yourself from heavy lifting for the rest of the day.

Relationship Status: Committed…to My Silence….

Silence between two unknown people makes a relation..
and
Silence between two know people breaks a relation..

Image

I totally believe in that Quote… And then also I still go with Second choice…
To keep myself in the Solitude of MY SILENCE

Because, sometimes…
It’s hard to explain only in words…
Because, sometimes…
Words can’t express what we feel deep inside…
Because, sometimes…
Deep inside we are dying, but seeing the person happy with other… Makes us Happy…
Because, sometimes..
Our Happiness..is not the only thing we should strive for..
Because, sometimes..
We just need to keep things within Us..

Times where I have been Silent... and Silent is still what I get, remembering those moments..

  • My Grandparents…had a Great life… and they left… I wasn’t there, at their last moments..

I wasn’t able to give my regards…for everything they taught me…
I wasn’t able to show my love…for everything they did to raise me..
Here I stand in their thoughts.. But all I am is… SILENT….

  • The one whom I loved (still do).. πŸ™‚ .. he gave me reason to SMILE more..

He is the reason.. I am ‘smilempsn’..
He is the reason.. I understood what loving someone can make you..
He is the reason.. I believe, that Love can happen to anyone..anywhere..
He got married…have an angel baby girl… We don’t talk now..
And Here again I stand with all his memories filled in me… But all I am is SILENT…
I wish I had the courage to , tell him what I felt.. But all I did was.. I was SILENT… and I still am…. πŸ™‚

  • My close friends.. not just 1..2..3.. but many…

Became unknown… left me for places they would be better in…
Just because, I wasn’t able to say them…. ‘Don’t Go… Stay here, with Me…’
Just because, I wasn’t able to say them…. ‘You belong..here..with Me…’
Just because, I wasn’t able to tell them…. How much they mean to Me…
Just because, all I was SILENT.. when they left me…

Image

One of my friends quoted me so well…

You talk too much.. But you say very less

I don’t know, that’s his line.. or Quoted from somewhere else…
But I totally agree to it… I talk sooo much…. but when I need to say something.. I just can’t…

I can’t say… that I will Miss you, to a person saying me goodbye..
I can’t say… that I love you, to a person whom I love most..
I can’t say… that because of you I am what I am, to my Parents..Grandparent..Because I think that’s obvious..
I can’t say… No to things.. I don’t like..
I can’t say… Yes… immediately… to think I want..
I can’t say…
I can’t share…
And I can’t stop feeling…

All this is inside me.. Somewhere.. Trying to opening up…
But all I hear is SILENCE outside….

For You – My Legacy – My Care & My Love ^_^

Daily Prompt.. surely Prompt bloggers like me to think OUT OF THE BOX…
Here is another Amazing Prompt… Don’t You Forget About Me

It just doesn’t let you thik about yesterday…today..this moment..tommorrow… but a far away moment i.e. after you are gone.

To leave a Legacy… for anyone if I could…..

Image

Β 

I would leave my Love..Care and Blessing for them…

Β 

I am just 29 yrs old.. and since I have understood myself, I have taken a lot of Care for my friends and my family…

My College friends call me our Groups “Mommy“.. They say, I take too much care of them.
My Roommates call me “Mother Teresa“.. As I give too much… Too much of my time… my thoughts…fun filled memories… anything.. I have, I give them πŸ™‚

Even thought they get frustrate by that CARE sometimes. Still my care for the doesn’t change.

E.g. For being called my Group’s Mommy…
There are many instances when they consider me as Mommy… Like, we have attended some late eve lecture/practical. I made sure, that everyone give missed call or message after they reach home. And it was just not applied to girls but guys too in our Group πŸ™‚

I have two little twins sisters… I call them my heartbeat… Even though my Maa always have taken care of us Sisters so well.. Still I have this affection and care towards my sisters… That sometimes, I even tell my Maa to take more care of my baccha’s (my sisters) ..

I hurt so many people by sometimes I talk… or take extra special care… Because they are Grown up, and don’t need to be taken care of…
Even though I get hurt in return… I still CARE for them…

Image

Well If I leave this world.. I would love to leave my never ending Care .. and Love to my dear and near ones..
So that they are always protected from all the bad things.. and Godji always bless them with more happiness..fun..

Thanks a lot to Daily Prompt, for giving me a thought for what I have never thought πŸ™‚

Be Blessed…

World Turns Red *V-Day Special*

ImageAs the world turns Red,

on the most romantic day of the year..

With all Roses..& hearts around..

I have no one, even to frown..

Β 

Image

It’s said Love is in the Air,

but sometimes you don’t even care..

You stood by for him on his ground,

and thinking about him now,

Β you feel like your thoughts are drowned…

Image

Β 

Few of talks..

Few of walks..

Don’t mean much now,

as there is nothing left somehow…

Image

Every piece is broken into two,

One he got and you left your without any clue..

He is fine now, & he will be fine always,

but without him you will always be in a maze..

Β 

Image

Β 

A maze that doesn’t end..

A maze that doesn’t blend..

A maze that won’t grow..

A maze that will slowly swallow..

(c) smilempsn

Thoughts just came to my mind…

Enjy the day of love, with your loved onces..

Be Blessed…
