Health related facts about myself

This morning I *tried* to give blood.

And my first comment to the assistant was “my iron is going to be low, just so you know” because I fasted yesterday, and I’m on my period, and I’m borderline anemic anyway.

But then, my iron was 12.9 - so it was fine.

And then my pulse (resting heart rate) was 64. 

DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS? I HAVE AN “EXCELLENT” HEART RATE. MY HEART IS IN EXCELLENT HEALTH.

My blood pressure was 124/78, which is also NORMAL.

And even though I couldn’t donate today (thanks, PA tattoo shops!), I’ll be donating soon enough.

I’m seriously so excited about the new facts I found out about myself. HOORAY. I’M DOING GOOD THINGS TO AND FOR MY BODY.
