Re: Epilepsy and donating blood?

Ditto to what valerie said! I just attempted to donate here in NC during a big blood drive but I called first. I was directed to The Red Cross and the lady told me that I had to be seizure-free for six months. Since I had just had a dang complex partial two weeks before, well, someone went without my A+ blood!
