Welcome

I would like to thank u for giving me a chance to vent, it's tuff somedays being B12+ is more stress on the mind once the body is more accustomed to the changes. Do u have kids? I have 4 and have been married for years now its a very beautiful feeling when u can talk to ppl that know what u did will or even have gone through. None the less I am more than happy to help u feel better and show that it's not all bad it's just the first step of the new u.

That's great my kids don't know yet we are going to til they are older and tell them cuz my girls are young. I just wish sometimes's that ppl could stress less and be more educated on the situation it would save loads of madness. a good thing about the name B12 is my kids know that B12 is a vitamin that we take in-house so they think it's that when they hear me say it. I understand that it can be a serious problem to talk about in some case's but find the peace of mind that u need inside, pushing ppl away can make things worse on u self, try to take things slow and steady, and when ur ready to speak just ask hypothetical questions on the subject it can help or hurt but taking things slowly it may turn out better than u think. how long has it been? I'm almost 4 years + I'm sad around the time frame cuz I'm really good with dates so it's like a super lazy day I use to be sad hurt and angry just all out stressed and drink wine, things are better cuz I'm super silly and my family is too. I'm glad for u by the way family team support really makes everything more helpful.

Nah. ;-) I was hoping to offer support. My best bit of advice is how you feel about yourself in your status and journey has a lot to do with how people receive your news.

Hello I just found out in February of this yr. I have went in stages of anger... sadness...disappointment...embarrassment and acceptance. My kids are older so they know and they help me out when I need. I am glad to have this group to talk to though.

Sry it's been a few days I have lots of health conditions myself that have me going up and down it's been a pretty hard week and I do hair so I've been on my feet due to the graduation and the holiday. Thats a good start with the family I mean but yes everyone goes through it at times I still feel like I didn't protect myself enough and y the ppl didn't say anything. But I have love from my husband all the time even though he feels like he is the reason for everything but it just feels good to know someone else cares. Other than that how have u been are u undetected now I am and I feel great but man those first sets of shots make u feel crazy due to me being scared of needles in all.
