Anemia

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. 😞

    You can do it! I understand how you feel, I absolutely hate taking pills with every passion I have. You can also consult with your doctor about using a more natural approach to achieve the prescribed iron levels. I hate that iron supplements can cause constipation..

      Yikes! Yeah I don’t need that side affect. Not to get too gross but I already don’t use the restroom enough compared to how much I eat so that wouldn’t be good. Thank you for the encouragement!

    That’s not gross, it’s natural. Based on my own experience, drinking water helps but you should tell your doctor that.
