Reply To: B-12 deficiency & CIDP

Wow, has it really been 250 days since I last posted? I’m still being treated by PE alone (2 PE’s every 6 weeks on back-to-back Fridays). My health, fitness and symptoms have stayed relatively the same. I’m staying very busy with work, Bible study, teaching Sunday school, and travel.

My last PE was last Friday at Methodist Hospital Blood Center Houston. The blood center was very busy and I waited 1.5 hours to get in. There was a young lady there with sickle cell anemia, another young lady with a lipid or platelet blood issue, a fellow with a trache, and another woman undergoing PE. There sure are a lot of folks who has it pretty tough. Made me again count my blessings (having CIDP stinks, but I am blessed).

I remember my neurologist’s objective from my diagnosis was to get me to the point that “CIDP isn’t the focus of my day”. And there are times I don’t even think about CIDP during the day, but it’s with me daily and there’s not a day that goes by that I haven’t thought about having CIDP. However, CIDP isn’t the focus of my life (thank you Dr. Mosier).

May God bless you all,
