I donate blood to punish myself

Donating blood is uncomfortable and often even painful for me. I continue to do it in order punish myself for all the things I hate about myself.

I guess it feels like cutting myself, except it seems legitimate to others. I regret that the system only lets me do it every two months, and I probably could and would kill myself if I were to actually purposefully over donate.

  1. Why are you stressing over doing public good? More people need to donate blood so that reserves can be up to needed levels. You’re a good person! If this continues to bother you, please consider therapy so that you can get at the crux of what may really be bothering you. Take care now.
