My Symptoms

I've read a bunch of people's post and I can relate.The shortness of breathe, tiredness, dizzy spells, headaches often and have a yellowish color to my skin. I love to hangout with my friends but lately it feels like I can't keep up. Alcohol is the worse, I can have a hangover for two days. I also have days(a lot of days) where all I want to do is lay around the house. I'm in my early 20s but sometimes it doesn't feel that way, it feels like I'm cursed.

If I can give an advice, avoid alcohol altogether. It affects people with thalassemia more quickly.

Try fitting foods containing iron into your diet- it makes me energetic whenever I eat foods with iron. Also have foods containing vitamin c as it helps your body absorb iron.
