They don't want my blood :-(

I've just rung the Blood Donation Helpline to see if I can resume giving blood. Unfortunately, with the potential of Scleroderma - or rather, the uncertainty about what it might be, I can't give again until there's a definite diagnosis. I'm not going for any more blood tests until next year, so the blood donation people have put an indefinite hold on the donor invitations.
It's a pity since I'm O Rhesus Negative which makes me a Universal Donor. Also I've given blood 48 times, so was only 2 away from getting my Gold Award.
