Yes, I was horribly anemic after the birth of my son. Imagine having to take care of a newborn and feeling too weak to walk from one end of the grocery store to another! After two months of taking iron supplements and eating iron-rich foods, I ended up having to get a transfusion. My strength and color returned immediately after that.

My dad also has pernicious anemia, which is an inability to absorb B12, I think. Annie Oakley died from this.

Floradix is a good iron supplement. Take it with Vitamin C to help absorption, and avoid caffeine if possible. I am a coffee lover, so I just took a little extra iron, instead. Seemed to work fine.

Oh, I was a big ice cruncher, too. I had to sneak it, because it drove my husband nutty.
