Time Line

Neurologist, Dr. Michael Baten, told me to keep a Time Line.

My Time Line shows improvement after B12 and deterioration after stress


1998

Dr. Sartorius of Rodeo Family Medicine diagnosed my pernicious anemia. He said that if my mother had pernicious anemia, then I was always, for the rest of my life, going to have to have regular B12 shots. He had his nurse show me how to give myself the injections and he gave me a prescription for injectable cobalamin.
