Just a bit of info I found out yesterday. I've been a regular blood donor for years and was nearly at my 30th donation. I called to advise them of my PMR and, while I obviously didn't expect to be able to continue donating, I was told that I can't do so until I've been clear of using steroids for a full 12 months. If things go to plan that's 3 years away yet. I was pretty upset as I like to do my bit but have said I will try to recruit someone to take my place. As I say, just info...and a place to moan where people understand.
