I have been a bad blogger lately. B-B-B-B-B-bad (insert tacky 80s blues guitar riff here). I have not been reading blogs or responding to comments as I should.
Basically, it’s because I am cream crackered.
I am anaemic and a couple of weeks ago my iron levels took a dip. My doctor doesn’t know why. It could be stress. Could be hormones. Could be a bleed.
Could be a what?
There is something about hearing your doctor say you could have a bleed that makes the anaemics among us feel even more light-headed than usual.
A bleed could involve something in the uterus (sorry to mention the ‘U’ word, male readers) or the stomach. Like a bleeding ulcer. Ewww.
I had an ultrasound yesterday and it revealed nothing out of the ordinary. Blood tests have shown everything is in working order. But the iron levels have remained low.
Are you eating properly? asked the doc.
Well, that’s the problem, you see. When the iron levels drop so does the appetite and nausea sets in. Not conducive to munching on a burger, I can tell you.
Tomorrow I am getting a shot of iron. Up to now I’ve been on tablets and sometimes a tonic. I can’t imagine what having an injection of the stuff will be like. Maybe I’ll be able to lift up the front of cars with my bare hands. Or punch right through an elevator door. I mean, isn’t iron what the superheroes eat?
I hope the shot of iron works. Being drop dead tired is no fun.
I’m tired of not feeling myself.
He he he. *snicker* I think I made a funny.
