Every month I deal with anemia that feels just like depression on top of lethargy. It's really frustrating and I have to remind myself it's not real, it's all just the iron in my blood being extremely low. I'm so tired of it. I slept 9 hours last night and took a really long nap and I still feel like I'm about to fall asleep sitting here.

Worked this evening, it's so easy and wonderful to be working and making money. I'm happy. I am making my cat some food right now, boiling chicken thighs. It's much more healthy and cost effective to make home made food for him. Chicken, salmon, brown rice and corned beef hash, all mixed together. Much better for him than the canned stuff that gave him the hypertension to begin with. Bless his heart. I love my animals so much.

T. is at her meeting and I am alone in the house right now, thinking a little bit too much. Wondering about a few things, trying not to let my mind wander too far away. Life is good and I'm extremely grateful. T. got another call today on some painting jobs so we are going to be just fine money wise. We always are. Things always work out. We have some great karma built up, that's all I can say. We never have hurt anyone intentionally. I hate hurting people.

Time to go finish up the cats food and start our dinner. Potato pancakes, bacon and eggs. Yummy. Hope you all are doing well. I've been terrible about reading everyone's blogs. I'll get there soon I promise. Hugs and Kisses :)

I've been feeling quite depressed and lethargic myself lately.... no motivation to really DO anything unless it's a "must do". Could it be the heat? *sigh* whatever, I hate that feeling.

I'm happy that things are working well for you... hope it stays that way.

I'm sorry you're not feeling at your best either Dorrie. For me it's my anemia and that makes me feel depressed. Every month during "that time" it takes my iron levels down so low I feel like death. It's frustrating. FEEL BETTER! I hope that you feel better soon. XO

I hope you feel better Greenie. You have to fight it. I need more rest in the summer than I do in the winter oddly enough. Anemia must be a real obstacle. I know you can punch through!

Do you take iron supplements, Green? Those might help. Hope you're feeling well soon!

Thanks Bobby.
Eve: I do take iron but it always upsets my stomach. I've tried so many kinds. I eat iron rich foods and it passes. It just sucks the life out of me before it passes.

balance is essential and just so hard to find sometimes
