1) Found out that one of my cousins also has B12 deficiency recently diagnosed, has had 6 loading injections and Dr put her on 2-monthly, but told her if that was not adequate, she could have 1-monthly injections. Is the wind of change beginning to blow our way? I'll write to her and recommend this site for the support and advice you all offer.
2) Got talking to a lovely couple on the next table in a local restaurant last night, mentioned my B12 deficiency and they said a lawyer friend of their's had just been diagnosed and is having loading injections. It occurred to me that she might be attending the same practice as me, and I highly recommended my doctor if she needs any help, since she has been so very helpful to me.
3) Had a really frank conversation with the nurse today about what this all feels like from the pointy end of the needle. This came about because I recognised that my hard-won reloading injections would not be allowed to continue forever, but that my aim would always be to regain all that I was previously and not settle for less unless I have to. At present, even on my best day, I would be unable to return to work: that's not enough, not with 8 years left to retirement! How the lawyer (2) is coping I don't know but I wish her well.
What is my point? Not sure, perhaps just that we need to talk more. Take care
