Donating Blood

I tried giving blood today. e- I love giving blood- I have a cool tiny scar on my arm to prove it. In Washington they were totally cool with me donating and I did so as often as possible. I have a decently rare blood blood type so I felt like I was doing my part.
Unfortunately, California seems a bit more picky. I tried giving today on campus and it didn't work out. But, BONUS! I still got a coupon for a free pint of ice cream.
I'm not exactly sure why Lupus is a dis qualifier, though. It's not contagious, after all.
Anyone know why?

  1. It's the Plaquenil that usually disqualifies donation rather than Lupus, although some locations just don't want to be bothered because they have to screen the blood.
