Anyone around here ever do the whole plasma donating thing? I'm a poor college student wanting some cash to buy games here and there who has had no problems donating blood in the past and who is almost freakishly used to being poked with needles (I was on accutane for way too long). I can't seem to find here on campus who has done it, so my only option is to turn to teh internets for help. What's it like and how does it compare to donating blood? I read somewhere that it takes significantly longer as well...somewhere around 4 hours, I think. Is it difficult to do it twice a week? The place nearby pays $25 for the first time you go a week, and $40 the second. Also, does turning to selling my body prove how desperate I am for some cash? Haha, wow...I feel like a whore.
