I donated plasma for several months to help pay for Logan and the flight to get him. I actually rather enjoyed it. I get to sit around and read for a while, get money for doing it, and help save lives. Awesome. I'd like to start again, I just need to find the time.
Be sure that you are VERY hydrated and get a good amount of protein before and after donating. Also, DO NOT drink large amounts of alcohol the night after you donate. Not a good mix, trust me
I usually stopped and got a GINORMOUS powerade after my donation, and ate a can of tun or chicken prior to my donation.
but around here, you get $200 for giving
Here I got around $50 a week (2 donations a week, your first week you get much more), so $200/month would be about right.
