Following her diagnosis of thyroid cancer in June 2020, Patricia felt lost and fearful while undergoing treatment. Although she anticipated her life returning to normal, she quickly realized there would be a new normal to adjust to. “I was taking my supplements, I was eating, I was doing everything right on time. But when I went to go do my blood work. My ferritin was below range. It was super low. And so I knew because I was having all the symptoms of iron deficiency, this unreal fatigue. This is not the only thing but was a major driver for my source of fatigue. So I was just kind of piecing things together, like what would I do as a provider for myself?”
