Okay super small world. I cannot believe that you knew what it was by first guess!!
But yes- after years of searching and infinite testing, I think I found out why I feel like all the time.
Who would have thunk. Iron.
So this goes to everyone. PLEASE HAVE YOUR IRON TESTED LOL. Especially my boys here.
I was blessed with two C282Y mutations and then another form that comes with HH 4 that causes ferritin to load faster.
How did you find out if I may ask? Do you load? By horrors it sounds like you have some idea.
Just knowing though I have friends on the squad that deal with depression is oddly comforting. We are all here for each other and that’s something I never considered when signing up for SH
I’d love if we had sort of like a mental support chill rant area about life offline. I’d love to be able to just openly support everyone. Even if it was getting upset about someone’s driving that day.
In reference to father in law- oh my gosh @Slogana that gave me chills… you probably meant the world to him… it’s crazy how meaningful those moments are. Like I’m tearing up over here.
To the medical… boy to I know it. Analysis paralysis all day. Trust me I’m trying to stay off the research but it’s hard since there is so little about it. I did find a Facebook support group that sort of is comforting. Everyone posts their blood draw selfies lol. Otherwise it’s depressing… so I hear you loud and clear. Also- you honestly don’t give yourself enough credit.
