Have you/can you apply for Social Security Disability? Some states offer "welfare" benefits while your disability claim is pending.

Hope things get better soon.

Don't be too embarrassed to call your doctor. It's best to get their professional opinion to avoid any potential issues that might come up from donating. I also donate at Biolife. My RNY was in 2011. I've struggled with anemia and have had one series of 8 iron infusions 2 years ago due to my iron becoming dangerously low. So keeping a close eye on your iron level is IMPORTANT! (My anemia is due to malabsorption--not from donating at Biolife.) My doctor told me that he feels it's fine that I donate my plasma. But I DO follow up with him regularly to keep a close eye on my iron levels. Biolife also monitors your iron & protein levels and will not let you donate if they don't meet THEIR requirements. I hope this helps. And I hope your personal situation turns around for you!
