Now I had planned on setting aside some time this weekend to write a more interesting post, but unfortunately, life is life and gets in the way.
To bring you up to speed, I was recently told that I have a severe iron deficiency and the results of this deficiency can make me more fatigued than I ever thought possible. For the last month, my doctor has had me on supplements, but this week hit hard. I was using all of my forcible energy to stay awake and it became painful to be awake. I liken the feeling to when you wake up in the middle of the night and start walking and your mind is waking up but your body is still asleep. I started to worry that I would fall or trip while working and thus, headed back to the doctors.
Since I work full time and have quite a lengthy commute, and not to mention the fact that I pretty much collapse when I come home, my weekends are my prime time to get anything done. This meant expending all of my limited energy as it was to going to doctors and even the hospital! eek! I’m fine, just exhausted. I left the hospital pretty quickly and met this fantastic nurse who gave me some great advice.
Hopefully, my iron levels will sort themselves out soon, because boy would I like to actually feel like a 21 year old!
This post is probably sounding like the longest excuse for a lack of a good read, but I don’t think I would’ve been capable of publishing anything more worthwhile whilst being this fatigued. I hope you forgive me.
Until next time,
