Your Story Told
We're all different, but we're all one.
If I've learned anything about Hemochromatosis, it is that we all experience Iron Overload differently. Sure the books will tell you about the symptoms, tests, and treatments... but what is it like to live with Hemochromatosis?
I feel the story is best told by the people who suffer from this condition. What is it like to experience the pain, fatigue, confusion, and loss of function? How does it affect relationships with family and friends? What has worked or has not worked?

My hope is that we can all learn from one another and find support and comfort.
