Blood Sucking

this made me laugh a lot! :o)

I have hemochromatosis, and in the first two years of "treatment" I gave 550ml of blood every week, then 550ml every two weeks the following 2 years. Now, 550ml once every 8 weeks....
my ferritin level went from 4300 and is now 120.

I always am amused by the different reactions of people to blood taking or needles. Some people have a real fear of it!

And I would rreakon that leeches would not be a bad thing!

thanks for making me laugh!

(Smile) no worries! I did not mean to bore you with the ferritin thing BTW.
