It's the easiest way to not feel like a failure, but I failed anyway. I had an appointment to donate blood this morning, but I'm not going. I failed to drink water and hydrate.
As I posted last time, it's not easy for me to give blood. Maybe it's because I only weigh ten pounds above the minimum requirement for giving blood, which is 110 pounds, or maybe it's because my body is just weak and unstable. But if I haven't eaten well and pushed fluids for 24 hours before giving, donating blood is difficult for me.
I forgot to drink extra water yesterday, so I'm going to be a no-show today. I have failed.
