Huh?: If your 'system' has an issue, you probably should not donate, as may transmit issue to recipient--who is sick/injured enough to need blood. If more mental/emotional, then yes, donating can often improve your spirits, as you saved a life (and up to 4 of them) w/your action. Talk to your Dr if worried about your health.
