Wrong choice, my consequences

october 14 2008

Last week I got the results of my bloodwork.

I'm borderline anaemic.
Because my body doesn't take in extra iron in a normal way, I have to have shots every once in a while.

Before the hysterectomy I've had lots of them.
So many that I was fed up with going to the doctorspractice or asking nurses in the hospital to give me a shot when I was for a check-up in hospital, so I took over to give the injections to myself.

So when I heard last week that it was almost time to start again my first reaction was: "Oh no!"
My agenda is full enough, I don´t need extra appointments.

I should have had a better second reaction.
I didn´t.

Now I´m tired all day, have a headache luring all day, and feel like I´m made of lead.

Now one of my teeth feels like someone is kicking with an electrical shoe against it every so many minutes.

It´s too late to change my decision now, as I need to be fit on thursday and the doctor´s office is closed. It´s vacation here.

Well, all I can do now is not sink in the pit of feeling sorry for myself, but keep on going and keep on cheering me up.
Maybe an extra cup of coffee will do the trick.


  1. we tend to disregard important things, im sorry to hear that you're in pain, i hope it's all gone tomorrow.

    take care laane

  2. Hope you feel better soon. Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)

  3. That doesn't sound like much fun at all. But you know, that it will get better.

    My mum also went through this, and now she's fine, she hasn't had anymore iron shots in a long long time.

  4. Dear Laane, let me invite you to a virtual coffee and a chit-chat, and I'm sure you won't feel sad :)
    hugs and don't give up!

  5. just remember not to take coffee with your meals. it hinders iron absorption ;)

    take care laane.
