Congratulations, Luth! Today I'm celebrating 57 months together with my bf :)

Thank you for throwing some ICE :)

@Kris, this developer must be, it's his first investment! 2 of 4 buildings are ready, people got their appartments, live in them and have signed the proper acts :) So far everything is going well :)

That's really good news, Agnes!

This morning, I almost would have been late for the office (although I was just on time eventually). The suburban railway would leave about 15 minutes late due to an emergency doctor's operation. Then, as we left (just a few minutes late) they told us the true reason: A child had been born on the train!

Can you think of any better reason to be late for work?

Cheers!

Markus! That's nice news!!  :biggrin:

Here, when trains have problems (quite often), of not something broken in the line, the reason use to be more sad (a lot of the railways are outside and people cross them when no train passes).

For once, a medical reason is a happy reason!  :biggrin:

So I was half nude when the Lord Mayor shook my hand earlier this afternoon. :ninja:

Indeed, Kris. :lol3:

I spent lots of time this weekend at the Laternenfest (Lampion Festival), the biggest folk festival of my home town. Today I went there just to take part in the "Saaleschwimmen": Swim across the river Saale and back. Every participant received a certificate which was signed and handed out by our Lord Mayor right after the swimming. Therefore many were still in their swimming clothes at that time.

Cheers!

Yes Markus, everything went well. Only the doctor told me I've got slightly elevated white blood cells. I was really worried that they would send me away but luckily they did not.


Markus, can you help with something?
After both donations, I entered a state of total exhaustion. I even slept for 2 hours when I arrived home. And I am still very exhausted. Does the same happen to you?
But then again, who does.

Dear Kris,

I've never experienced anything like that... Did you drink plenty after the donation? Are you feeling better the next day? I can imagine that the drop in blood pressure due to the donation makes you feel feeble and exhausted. Perhaps you'd like to mention that to the doctors next time?

Cheers!

Eya Kris! I've donated too, and never happened what you explain. I do felt dizzy twice, I suppose because of the drop of blood pressure, so I must be very carefull when getting up after the donation (very slowly, sitting down for a while, drinking something with sugar...). As Markus, I guess the blood pressure drop is the cause, and I don't think you have to worry. I also know you must wait 24 hours before doing hard exercice, so it makes a little sense...

Btw... Next Friday (not this one, but the folloing) there's a "blood donation marathon" in my city, and I intend to participate, again!  :ninja:

Kris, you could ask them to take your blood pressure after the next donation. :)

Luth, I know about the exercise. But as far as I know that is not about the blood pressure; they always told me that I'd risk a painful hematoma if I stressed the arm too soon.

Blood donation marathon? Does that mean they want 42,195 liters from each participant? :afaid:

Cheers!

Naaah, I think it's about the number of participants, no the quantity of litres of each one of them... But I'll ask, just in case  :insane:

My pressure is fine, I have never been dizzy or so.

I just am so very tired few hours after the donation. And feeble. Maybe I am not the ideal donor... after all even though my levels are fine, most of the women in our family suffer from anemia. Anyway, Next time I will try plazma :)

Anemia? Not very likely, is it? Don't they check your iron values before the donation? Besides that, the blood cells don't regenerate that quickly - if anemia was the reason you'd feel that feeble for days or even weeks. It has to be something that improves quickly after the donation, and blood pressure is the only such thing that comes to my mind.

Anyway, we can only speculate - the doctors will be able to give you qualified advice. :)

Cheers!

I had problems with hemoglobine for years, but since I take some supplements for months I am fine now, that's why they let me donate... But if I do not take them my hemoglobine level is low, because we (women in our family) have problem with processing iron from the food.


So it's not that I would have anemia, but maybe thanks to the fact that my hemoglobine is fine just cause of supplements, it might influence  me stronger when I do lose some blood? I have no idea.
Anyway, I feel better now. After few hours of sleep and some food.
But then again, who does.
