Rant are there any other diabetics on this forum???

So, yes, i am the newbie, and i am a diabetic. i was just wondering if there were any others on this forum who were; and how much grief it gives you. I have been trying to donate plasma for the last year, and i FINALLY got to do the first donation on the 21st. Now they are telling me i have to wait untill the corporate office approves me cause i have a permanent deferral from a whole blood center. Now for those of you who dont quite understand, whole blood is different from plasma. A diabetic should have NO problem giving plasma, but we CANNOT give blood due to this diease that we have. Yes, diabetes is a disease. i can't give it to anyone except my children, unless they are lucky and dont inherit it from me. Back to the plasma.......
the reason that the blood center deferred me was cause the plasma place called and gave them the info, now the plasma place is using the deferral the blood center gave them to give me a problem in donating. does this make ANY sense to anyone else???? anyway, i gotta call corp. in the morning and see if they will straighten this whole god-forsaken mess out.

Not exactly sure this is where you want this thread to be. But...
Why are you so hellfired up about donating plasma anyways?
Yes, it's a good thing to do. But if you were to run the risk of 'possibly' infecting someone else with problem ( i use that term because i don't know what one of the various types of diabeties you have ) why would you want to do it?
Granted, you can up your monthly income by several hundred dollars donating. But why would you take the risk?

I have type 2 diabetes. Non-insulin dependant. only oral madication users can donate plasma. i want to do this so bad cause $5.85 an hour at taco bell isn't enough money to pay for my bills and meds. i only get 30-39 hours per two weeks for my paycheck. also this is the ONLY place i was able to start a thread when i posted it.

I am anemic. Ask Uncletiggs I passed out once giving plasma and they had to speedily reinject it. I needed the money at the time so I forego telling them I anemic. They may only be thinking about your safety. I thought I was going to die...... got real cold and felt very far away

Get a job with benefits. Pay for those benefits if you have to. In some cases the insurance payment will be less than the total pharm costs.
