I hope that you can focus on all the right things that you are doing and realize that you are doing what is needed. It is easy to have the imagination take off without evidence of a problem and it can be debilitating if not recognized. Since you know that you are heading that way, try to remember that you have made sound decisions at this point. No one has given you reason for believing those things yet, so as we say in our family, it isn’t time to worry yet. Just stay in touch here and we will help as we can. Nancy

Thank you! I just came across an article that said being treated with iron you can gain weight. Have you heard that? I've gained 20 lbs in the past year since I have used iron supplements off and on. The article said that you might need to change your diet or if you have a metabolic disease. I can't change what I eat since I don't eat a lot at all and kept weight off for over 4 years until I started taking iron pills. I did have a couple iron infusions before. I do have a thyroid problem so am wondering if that could be the problem for all my weight gain. I work out on a treadmill 7 days a week, 45 minutes per day, but today I have done 1 hr and this afternoon will do a few more 15 minute intervals.
