Why So Long?

I went to see my Dr. and she of course took blood.  It will take a few weeks for the blood work results.  She didn't think it was low iron because my nails looked good and I eat red meat three times a week.  So they will look for infection, thyroid and something else I can't remember.  I may have to get some check of my heart just in case too but I have to wait for them to phone me for that appointment.

If those results are good I have to go see a endocrinologist or someone to look at hormone levels.  That may mean a trip out of town because our small hospital doesn't have those kinds of specialists. 

Here's an example of how tired I am.  I sat down after supper tonight and fell asleep sitting up on the couch.  I was sleeping so soundly I didn't even hear my husband come in the front door a few feet from me.  I still can't believe I was sleeping that soundly sitting up.  I mean who dozes off sitting up unless you're 100 years old?!!

Everything seems like to…


I've been feeling very tired the past two weeks.  I can't seem to get enough energy to do much of anything, even the things I need to do.  I hate feeling like this because there are so many things I want to be doing and then I end up not being able to.  A friend of mine thinks I have fibromyalgia.  I ache so much and it's not from the joints like arthritis but more an all over ache.  It feels like I've just run a marathon and need to rest.

So I've got an appointment with my Dr. to see what if anything is causing this energy low.  Hopefully whatever it is can be healed so I can get on with things and stop feeling like a truck has run over me.

I have lots to post about but I'll have to write it all down later when I can keep my eyes open.
