Not because I have 2 beautiful, high energy, vibrant daughters.
Not because I have a full time job.
Not because I have a house or a dog or a husband or family or friends or am lazy or can't keep up...
Nope, apparently my exhaustion, headaches, irritability... yup all of that... cause I am anemic.
Sometimes, regardless of the answer, it is nice to know that how you feel is not because of some innate inadequacy you see against all those around you - the lack of energy the feeling of not being able to keep up - there is something physically wrong, YAY. And best of all it can be fixed, easily.
But of course, the root cause of the anemia, that is another issue and unfortunately one not easily fixed but at least maybe I can start to have more energy while trying to fix that other issue.
