So, I think it’s time to come to terms with the fact that I have iron deficiency anemia. I think a part of me was hoping I’d never get that diagnosis although I know my mother has it. I can shamefully admit I used to think that maybe she was just making excuses for wanting to sleep a lot. However, I now realize it’s no excuse not joke.
I spent a lot of my Saturday in bed. I felt so drained and I had gone to bed earlier than usual. I missed my 6am workout today because I still felt so drained this morning and felt that my rest was a bit more important. I’m a bit more alert now but I know this isn’t my normal energy level.
So, I need to just go pick up my iron pills that I was prescribed back in August. I don’t like the idea of having to take something daily but it’s time to get over it. Hopefully by taking the supplements and tweaking my diet a little I can get my iron back to a normal level consistently.
Now, my task is to MAKE myself set the time to pick the pills up from Walmart. 😞
