This is why we can’t have nice things

paula deen ya'll!Whelp in keeping with the theme of my life. Something weird happened with my health. I have a physical with my GP in Texas once a year and we make believe that my body works like a normal persons. Well this year we found something cool in my blood work. In the past I’ve been pre-anemic but as of this year I have big kid anemia, which isn’t a big deal unless you can’t take iron supplements due to an unidentified GI issue that causes you to vomit EVERY kind [flinstones chewable, slow FE, bifera, etc…] and those are the type made for people with sensitive stomachs! So I get to go to an oncologist/hematologist who works with individuals such as myself, my GP’s assistant mentioned the possibility of an iron IV and honestly I’d be fine with that, at this point I will do whatever it takes to get myself even a step closer to feeling borderline normal [or normal for me anyways].


In other AWESOME news, I leave for London in 4 weeks!

  1. Life is sure ever-changing and sometimes even interesting, no?  At least you’re finding out more and more about your body — and apparently getting or going to get help to manage it, sounds like.  As always, I’ll be eager to hear information and solutions.  Love you lots, sweetie.  Mimi


  2. Good luck with the iron situation. Nothing like anemia to make your chronic-illiness fatigue even worse! Have a wonderful time in London. My husband and I love the city and are looking forward to our next trip in September. Fingers crossed that all your health issues stay on this side of the Atlantic!

    • I’m hoping that getting the Anemia under wraps will help with my fatigue. I’ve never been but am very excited to go! Thank you I will provide updates about my trip [I’m also going to the middle east to see my sister and her family].
