I know I'm getting better because:
people keep saying I look better, my hair rarely falls out now, my mouth rarely splits at the corners or bleeds, and my gums don't bleed either, I can feel the injection needle going in now (since Christmas) and feel tingling sometimes instead of numbness in hands and legs.
But still can't:
follow a series on TV (memory loss) or a complicated plot (confusion), or remember more than 1 thing at a time unless I write it down and then remember I've written it down, do anything the slightest bit physical without losing my temper and then wearing myself out (adrenalin surge??).
Still have hip pain, lower back pain, go to the toilet way too often. Last night I woke in the middle of the night in darkness and could not remember where the stairs were in the flat I've lived in for 35 years -because I'd spent the weekend before at my partner's!
Often I am unsure whether I am continuing to improve or just setting my sights a lot lower. I have been doing a chart for months but can see no real patterns emerging at all. No-one seems to know much about long-term treatment for Functional B12 deficiency, and I still get confused with American advice because they don't seem to differentiate between vegetarians and vegans. I've been a vegetarian for over 30 years so should be dead at least twice by now (?) - but I eat cheese and/or eggs and leafy greens every day, and doubt that meat-eaters eat that much liver these days..... anyone out there know what I can do to help myself?
