Rather than not post anything I thought I would explain what has happened to me today...
I woke this morning as usual really happy full of beans and ready to take on the world! I had a doctors appointment to get this monthly blighted problem sorted as its just dragging on far too long. (trying not to go into too much detail!)
Basically I was sent to the hospital for blood tests and thought nothing more of it. Later in the day around 5pm, the doctor called me to give me the blood test results. Rather odd I thought, but good service! The doctor said that I needed to go to A&E and explain to them that I have very low haemoglobin level, normal is around 12.5 and mine was 8. So needed to be looked at as I might need a blood transfusion.
Apart from being totally stressed out about this I was now worrying about a possible blood transfusion.
So you can imagine how I feel... the major thing I am actually stressing over is missing my exercise sessions, silly right! As my body has no energy the A&E doctor explained it like this...I have enough at this moment to keep my heart and brain working but anything else, dressing, walking, eating I am on a go slow... understatement really I feel like a snail. Just taking my coat off I use a lot of energy and been told to sit and relax!
As of tomorrow I will be on high doses of iron tablets to re-boost my levels, and more blood to be taken. Not sure I like blood taken any more... see with having such large arms my veins are small and deep in there, they can never find them. So I have to have blood taken from the top of my hand, and oooh its painful. :(
So needless to say I did not attend my exercise session, and probably will not be for a little while. I am devistated about this as I was really enjoying it. But the main thing is to get me back to normal and well enough to go back to the exercise sessions, I know this! So this means no weigh day until I can go back... another thing I am gutted about :(
And to top off my awful day, my i phone decided to 'die' on me! Nooo my phone! So other half is looking into the insurance and sorting it out to get another one!
I think its been one of those days, you know.... why me!!
I took photos of my meals, on my phone! And now phone broken cannot access them... damn it!! So come up with a plan... I will see if I can take them on my i pad and then attach then that way... either way I WILL find a way! I WILL still eat healthily, come to far, and I am NOT a quitter...this is but a minor hic cup! I will keep you posted! :)
