A New Woman

You may have noticed I haven't posted for the last few weeks. It is partly because I have been busy but mostly because I haven't been motivated. If I didn't know I wasn't pregnant I would think I was. The last couple of  weeks I have felt so tired and unmotivated. This is usually one of my first signs that I'm pregnant. I was starting to think maybe I was battling depression but I wanted to do things I just didn't have the energy to complete them. I would start something and then get weak so I would stop. It finally dawned on me that my Iron is probably low. I am anemic and am supposed to be taking iron pills. The pills I have in the medicine cabinet expired in 2008 so they aren't as potent and I just gave up taking them.

Yesterday I decided I couldn't take it anymore so I went to my local drugstore and purchased a brand new bottle of Iron and a box of EmergenC. When I got home I mixed up my EmergenC (vitamin C helps the body absorb iron better) and took an Iron pill with it. I did the same thing after dinner. This morning I woke up and didn't need to hit the snooze button 5 times. I feel like a brand new woman. So, with my new found energy I must get off the computer now and finish the tasks I've started and didn't finish.
