One goal I had was to resume giving blood regularly. I made an appointment and went in yesterday and found out I'm BANNED!!! For a year!! All because we went to the Great Wall of China for about 4 hours last September. I couldn't believe it -- the wall is 1,500 miles long, so it's not like visiting a small town or anything.
The nurse said there were a lot more outbreaks of malaria worldwide last year, and even visiting Cancun, Mexico made you ineligible.
