I regularly lied on that answer. Even though the sound of my voice totally gives me away, they're not going to question it and most of the clinics locally have been trying to fight the policy anyways. However, two years ago, October, I went to donate but my blood pressure was too high to be accepted. I haven't donated since. I've lost most of the weight and my blood pressure is completely normal. But, I'm also very proud of who I am now and don't want to lie. I think it's OK to lie about it as most of the nurses drawing the blood rant about how stupid and UN-factually based the policies are and how it prevents saving lives. It may just take me some time to get up the courage.
