Unhappy I am chronically anemic and allergic to iron. Please help!

I'm re-opening this thread. Update: I was diagnosed with two mutations in my MTHFR gene, which was the root of the evil fibro and other problems. However, taking the cure-all for that (Deplin 15mg) did not solve the blood problem. I am so sleepy and tired all the time. My "boyfriend" is always angry at me because I can't keep up like others in life and many people have abandoned me because the anemia (causes lack of oxygen) makes me nervous, sensitive, tired, forgetful, etc. etc. I'm too much of a burden for people to stick around for.

I'm trying to start my life over as a domestic abuse victim, but don't have a support system. I also have no job, no home in less than 3 weeks, and no insurance or money to pursue treatment. If anyone has a miracle in your pocket, please share it with me.

Thank you kindly!

Re: I am chronically anemic and allergic to iron. Please help!

Are you allergic to iron rich foods or just the iron pills? What type of allergic reaction do you have to it? Have you tried different types? I hope you can figure out how to up your iron soon to improve your quality of life. If you're not allergic to foods with iron in it, then it may just be the type of iron you were taking that made you have a reaction. What does your doctor say?

I hope life improves for you soon!
