Give blood (read all 2 entries…)

I don’t know if I’ve truly completed this goal.. it’s not like I gave up though. I went to the appointment. The guy said “I want to take your blood!”, but they couldn’t. My partner is an ex IV drug user. It doesn’t seem to matter if that was 25 years ago, or that we’ve been together 14 years and that they can test both of us for any of the diseases of concern. They automatically exclude any IV drug user, even if it was only once, however long ago and therefore, anyone that has had unprotected sex with them in the last 12 months.
Seems kind of crazy to me…
so unless we break up or use condoms/abstain for 12 months, I can never give blood :(
