    I Don't Know Why!

    I went to the doctors today, he says I am anemic. He also said I have next to no iron, in two months my iron level has gone from fine to nothing. I am so confused. Now I have to have weekly iron shots and monthly blood tests, I guess it could be worse. I just wish I knew why.
