Maybe try to find a liquid B12 supplement in a methylcobalamin (rather than cyanocobalamin) it's better absorbed and utlitised by the body, and take it religiously every day. Talk to a health professional about the possibility of upping the recommended dosage on the packet for an amount of time to bring your levels back to normal. Get a second health professional opinion, but make sure you get onto it soon. B12 deficiency can be pretty serious.

No probs Bucko!
Mi casa Su casa, but this time with knowledge!
You can also get the raw Vitamin Code vitamins. There is a B-vitamin formulation, as well as one specifically B12. I'm not sure how they actually make raw vitamins, but their site seems quite interesting.

I'm not sure how long you've been Vegan/raw, but a B12 deficiency takes YEARS to acquire. It's also possible for folks who actually eat meat products to get a deficiency so don't beat yourself up!!

Actually, it can sometimes take as little as 6 months for a B12 deficiency to become clinical after a change of diet occurs that restricts B12.
Many omnivores are B12 deficient. B12 stores and how fast these are depleted depend on a number of things including how much B12 is ingested and absorbed and in what form, how much alcohol is consumed, how stressed a lifestyle the person leads etc.
