Tried to donate blood again today

Got deferred again thanks to a fast pulse, even tho I gave them the note from my doc saying that there is no problem. So now I wait for them to give the note from my doc to their doc and have him call me so I can tell him my pulse is fast because I am terrified of needles.

Giving blood shouldn't be this damned difficult! I can tell you that my pulse rate when I first donated way back when would have been a LOT higher then it was today. Heck, I was in and out in less then 10 minutes once they hooked me up. The guy who had gone in before me was still there when I filled my first pint and left.

Hopefully the doc will call, I'll get cleared and then I won't have to keep dealing with this and I can donate again.
