Do you know what your blood type is?

Do you carry a copy of this in your purse or wallet, and would you give blood if there was an urgent need for your type?

I do have a card in my purse so I do know -oh, I USED to know but have forgotten.
I am an unusual one.

No I cannot give blood as have had cancer and a melanoma and they wouldnt take it if on certain medications.

If i was healthier, I certainly would give blood as I can only see good from doing this -I don't know why so few of us do not donate our blood.

Yes I am B Positive, not one of the really common ones...I have it written in my diary every year

Yes! I do know my blood type and keep records handy,as I have a rare condition and it would be dangerous and irresponsible to not have this information.
As I understand it if you get into an accident or something and need blood they test your type anyway regardless of anything you carry saying what it is. I know mine from when I used to give blood and I'd still give blood regularly if I could.
I haven't got a clue what my blood type is.
I think?
A Positive.

But not 100% sure.
I'm O positive, and I carry my donor card in my wallet. I haven't donated in years because the last time I did, I nearly passed out. Not a pleasant experience.

I know my blood type but I don't have it written down.

I have no idea either!
I do know my blood type as I am a regular donor and I carry my donor card with me.
I know my blood type. Don't have it written down, as is tested automatically if there's a requirement.

Don't donate blood due medications.
Even if could, maybe not, as have 'needle phobia'!

Yes I know and yes, I carry it in my purse as it's not a 'common' one. I probably would if it was really desperate, but like Donjo I am not too keen as I REALLY dislike needles!

I think Iíve the common O positive. I donít carry a note about it in my handbag, because Iím always changing handbags, but itís on my blood donor card. I recently donated my 100th pint of blood. I started donating as a teenager. Yes I would give more blood if I was asked too, but 1 is only allowed to donate every 10 weeks.I pint of blood does save 3 lives.
No I don't know my blood type,but I guess it wouldn't hurt to know this.
I know what my blood type is but don't carry it around with me. I can't give blood though because there is something in it that prevents me doing so.

I know it, but I don't keep a record. In the event of an accident where you need blood they test you anyway since they need to know more than just the type, and I don't think they can legally rely on the cards that say your type in case they are wrong.
Oops, didn't realise I'd answered this one before, sorry.
