    I’m new here!

    Hi, my name is j_gm. I'm here because
    my friend recommend I try it. In December 2022, I almost died and I can not stop crying. I was getting ready for work and woke up in ambulance. I lost over a liter of blood in less than 20 minutes according to ambulance medics. i am terrified and a mess. No signs or symptoms of anything wrong. wasn't even on my period. It just happened. Now I have lost everyone I love and thought loved me. I feel alone and am still dealing with trauma of what happened along with the diagnosis to top it off. I have to have surgery and deal alone with it all. When I got to hospital my hemoglobin was 30 out of 120 to 160. I had a transfusion & iron infusion. My body still shows 0 ferritin. I have nightmares. Medical anxiety. Just a mess. Thanks for letting me join.

    Iron deficiency anemia with no explanation

    For over 2 years I’ve been receiving iv iron and blood transfusions to keep my hemoglobin between 7-9
    Drs have run all kinds of blood tests bone marrow etc
    They can’t figure out why I can absorb iron and produce red blood cells
    Any one similar
