I know you are suffering, but try not to let the amount of blood freak you out too much. I have had blood pretty much every day for over 20 years, and as shocking as it might look to someone who hasn't experienced this disease, I don't worry about
it. Occasionally I get anemic and have to do something about
that, but for the most part the body is amazingly good as producing more of what it has lost. So try not to let the blood freak you out.
some kind of data entry? Hospitals are desperate for people who will do data entry or "coding" but I don't know what kind of training is needed.
I hope you can find some peace. Good luck.
