I think during the last three weeks, I have been in the doctor's office waiting room more than I have my entire life.
Constant monitoring of my blood counts and regular blood therapies are the norm these days. I have been heavily educating myself on ways to improve the counts through nutrition and activity, which of course is highly compounded by the fact that some days, I'd rather have no activity.
I will continue to advocate for blood donors, after all, my life is dependent upon those donations. I will continue to advocate for more legislation for lower age limits and less discrimination for donors.
