Vitamins. They’re kind of important. For me they’re extra kind of important. As a gastric bypass patient my husband and I have very specific requirements about having to take vitamins, more so than most people. Because of the nature of Gastric Bypass we don’t absorb vitamins the way other people do, this can lead to a lot of really bad consequences if we don’t take supplements. So, we take a lot of vitamin supplements.
One of those supplements is vitamin B12. The thing about B12 is that it’s kind of an important vitamin. Imagine being tired all the time, depressed, and having a poor memory. Then imagine mania and psychosis. Then imagine irreversible damage to your brain and nervous system. These are the increasing symptoms of B12 deficiency. Now they don’t all come at once. They creep up on you. But if you aren’t careful, they will come.
One of the interesting things about B12 is that there are a lot of different ways to take it. You can get a shot. Or take pills. Or take a sublingual…thingy (it dissolves under your tongue). Or use a nose spray. Or use a mouth spray. And I’ve tried them all. They all have their up’s and down’s but my favorite is Misol Vitamin B12 mouth spray. And let me tell you why. Or rather let me tell you why I don’t like all the other options. I don’t like needles. I take enough pills already. And it seems like sublinguals take forever to dissolve. That leaves nose spray or mouth spray. I used to use nose spray. I’ve got news for you. It is not cheap and frankly, it’s hard to tell if it works. There is nothing worse than the feeling that something you just sprayed in your nose is just running right back out. Kind of gross, I know, but that’s the reality. So that leaves me with a spray that goes right in my mouth, so I know it is getting absorbed. And bonus, it tastes kind of minty. Fresher breath and no irreversible neurological damage, that’s a win.
