One thing I’ve wanted to do my entire life was give blood.
Burgers before. Spinach before. No good.
I hit 30 and weakness sets in. What on Earth is this? I have never been vital. I have never been “peak”. But weakness now?
Diagnosis: Beta Thalassemia. My bones are empty. My blood is tiny. I can never give blood.
I guess that takes it off the bucket list…
