So I've been very sexually responsible for the past year and I just got my physical results today and I'm totally healthy. When I was going to lunch I saw that my company was doing a blood drive. Now in the past going to donate was not even an option because I would travel to India which automatically puts you on a year's deferral but I haven't been back in 2 years so with the happy feeling of my test results I finally decided I would try to donate today. I know gay men are banned from giving blood but considering I've been tested twice in the last 6 months (first was just a free test they were offering at the bar and latest was part of my physical) I did not feel i was putting the blood bank at any risk. So i decided to lie today on the question about sex with men (yes you can judge me for it). Then we came to the question of travel and I was super confident I won't have any problems since I haven't been back to India recently. BUT they just changed the policy last year that if you have EVER had malaria then you get an automatic INDEFINITE DEFERRAL! WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF FUCK YOU GUYS! I'M GOING HOME!
