Re: To OlderLady...

Yes, I do know the cause of my deficiency at least what my doctor said. He said that my body either has stopped or more likely absorbs b12 very inefficiently, so I need the shots for the rest of my life. From what I have read it is an autoimmune disease like lupus or any other autoimmune disease. No, I don't think I have had any more infections than what would be considered normal. Has your doctor told you the cause of your deficiency? I know vegetarians can get a deficiency. Has he said that a some point you will be able to stop the shots? If he says yes then it's not what I have but if no then it probably is. You're not bugging me I'm happy to try to help. I know I felt so scared, sick, and alone. I felt that the rest of the world was going on with their happy life, except me.
