Has anyone donated blood in Manhattan recently? Recommendations for not crowded centers? I’m basically sheltering in place to avoid COVID and have a week off; figured I’d do something helpful while I can!

Thanks! I did some digging and decided to go to a NYBC site, since I want to donate plasma and that seems to be one of the few locations for it

NYBC actually set up a pop up at our office building…went upstairs to donate and went back to the desk. In the future, perhaps see if they come to your office.

Kind of unrelated, but I tried to donate blood recently and was unable to, as I lived in France during the lates 90s for a few years, making me ineligible due to there being an outbreak of BSE (aka Mad Cow disease) there at the time.

I had that issue with Red Cross given that I spent 7 years overseas in Europe, but NYBC has less strict geographic limitations with regards to Europe and they’ve taken my donations. Have to been screened out of both RC and NYBC?

I realized this morning that the anxiety I’m feeling lately is really similar to the anxiety I felt as a first year, when I was out of my depth and didn’t know what I was doing. I haven’t had anxiety issues for a couple of years now, but here we are again. Does this happen at every point in the legal profession when you suddenly have increased responsibility and expectations? When do I get to feel competent again instead of totally overwhelmed?

Whew this group is a relief to find. No one at my job knows I have ADHD, and I only have one other friend with it.

I've kind of got the hang of keeping focus during work hours, but I'm just constantly on edge that someone will notice or I'll start falling behind.
