And these I have to do myself!!!
Last week, before I met with Dr. Bennett (the plastic surgeon), I had to have a blood draw for test for Dr. Mauther (gastroenterologist). They were a bit concerned about my B12 and I showed to be a bit anemic.
So I will start taking a daily iron tablet.
But the B12 is not quite so easy.
My levels are so low, he wants to build them up rather quickly. A tablet won't work. I have to have injections...
for three months!!!
Not a real happy camper right now!
Am I not happy because I have to have daily injections? NO
Because I have to do them daily? No
Then it must be the fact that I have to do this for three month? NO
It is because I have to do them at home.
I don't like getting stuck by a needle by people that have been trained to do this.
So imagine the horror scenarios that keep going through my mind!
I know there are people that do this all the time several times a day because they are diabetic, but not me.
I hate needles!!
After I do these injections for three months, then I will do them once a week for a few months and then once a month.
I hope this will give me some long lost energy.
I really need to get ready for the neighborhood garage sale next month.
And clean my house!!!
Now I am not sure if this is a forever thing or how long I will have to do these injections, but the important thing to get the B12 back up. However long I have to do these injections, I do know one thing...
Everything is going to be OK.
