As many of you know, I recently got off the PCT because I have blood transfusion level anemia. I have now had five iron infusions, a trip to the ER, a bunch of blood tests, a couple poop tests, and three weeks of almost complete bed rest (mostly sleep with a few good days in between). I’m not totally sure what’s causing the anemia (could be something simple, could be something really bad) but I am getting closer to figuring it out!
I now have thousands of dollars worth of medical bills, and I am so glad to be feeling better because I finally have the cognitive function to be able to work on a zine to help pay them off!
Want to read about thru hiking, quitting the trail and all that comes with that act, accepting a body that isn’t cooperating and what that means for both my self esteem and my eating disorder recovery, some deep down real shit about anemia, and some traumatizing medical industrial complex times? Venmo me @muffydavis or PayPal me at firstname.lastname@example.org (make sure to include your address!) Zines are 10-100$ sliding scale, come with a print of the glorious Pacific Crest Trail, and will be shipped at the end of September (paper copies are US shipping only, I am happy to provide a PDF for international friends!)
