Over the last few months I've been working like mad, starting to pay off some of the medical bills I've been drowning in. I continue fighting with my insurance, as they randomly deny coverage of even common tests and procedures; they just denied covering my last colonoscopy, sticking me with another $3,400 bill. Some days I come home and all I want to do is scream, but I'm so extremely tired I just plummet in bed. I'm truly caught in a hamster's wheel. And they denied Valcyte yet once again. I had another relapse with a major chest cold, the third one this year alone. At least it didn't turn into a pneumonia yet, as it did last winter. Zero energy, five days in bed like a complete zombie. Recent tests show that none of my titres have come down at all, and furthermore, another vitamin and mineral deficiency has been added to the roster: Zinc. With this, now I have tested deficient for B12, C, D, Magnesium, and now Zinc. Why do so many of us get such dramatic vitamin deficiencies? What does it mean?
