Anyone know their blood type?

A couple weeks ago I donated blood and they sent me a card saying I'm A-. We recently talked about this in my anatomy class too, and I now know I can donate to A+/- and AB+/- and can only receive blood from O- & A-

AB blood is considered the universal recipient and O blood is considered the universal donor.



I thought this would be an interesting thread, and I'm going into nursing.. so all of this is relevant (to me at least :P)

O- I can only get blood from other O- people. I can give to just about everyone though (there are rare exceptions).

Yep!
Same here...
The worst part is that both of my parents and sister are B..

How I can have an O is a mystery...*either I was adopted or there was a mistake with my diagnosis..
