Anemia sucks. It is the worst. I hate being tired all the time. I hate that I feel like all of the strength is going out of my arms. I hate that I can’t do everything that I want to do all the time. I just don’t have the energy.
It’s also affecting me at work. Like when I have to drive out of town and go work in a city that is 3,000 ft higher than where I live. The altitude difference kills me. I get short of breath, my heart will be pounding and I feel even more tired than I already am. I’ll feel like all of the strength has gone out of my hands and arms. It ends up taking me longer to do my work because of it.
I’m starting the iron supplement today on top of what’s already in my multivitamin. I’m hoping that it’ll start to help soon but at the same time I don’t think that it will. I’m worried that I’ll have to get an IV infusion of it. I just don’t know how well my body is absorbing the nutrients & minerals that it needs.
