Ha! Rosie's post happened to reference the Australian Red Cross --
In America, you are allowed to donate but it is strongly recommended that you do NOT do so if you are flaring or having undetermined issues. They also are not too fond of the idea of you are taking prednisone or a chemotherapy med (MTX, Cellcept...)
But if you feel good and aren't taking those meds -- the more blood the merrier!!!
