In brief: Not of this

You need to work with your physician to find the cause of your anemia.
Up to a quarter of adults are ANA-positive; even high-titer folks often don't have trouble from it. Usually the cause of the anemia can be found and treated. Plan your life as if you'll have a normal span, and pack whatever amount you get with warmth and meaningful fun.
