3 months ago I couldn't walk more than a few metres without gasping for breath. I had to choose one task to do a day. If I did a small supermarket shop I wouldn't be able to walk the dogs as well. I now realise I couldn't even shake my duvet efficiently! GP was pretty useless so after finding this site I started self injecting. I've used just over 20 X 1ml phials so far.
Today I had a log delivery. 3 huge dumpy bags of logs to stack, although the delivery man did drag them to my log store ( bless him)
I did it in an hour. Over a ton of logs stacked on my own, 6 large tub loads carried around to the overflow store and the log baskets in the house filled. Can't believe I did it. And after a short sit down and a cuppa I'm ok to take the dogs to the beach, where we're now walking 2 miles most days.
THANKYOU to everyone here for info, support and advice. Without you I'd still be spending hours every day in bed wondering what the hell was wrong with me.
Cutting out gluten, eating fresh fruit, veg and protein have helped, along with the now weekly B12 jabs.
To anyone else suffering the awful effects of B12 deficiency there is hope of a recovery to enjoyable health. Self injecting is quite cheap at just over £1 per injection and taking control of your treatment helps enormously.
Again I can only say a HUGE thanks and wish everyone a healthier road ahead.
