So just in case you didn't hear why I was out sick on Friday....
And if you already know, here's an update. Yesterday my doctor called to give me the results of my blood tests. She still hasn't received the test for the Von Willenbrand Disease (which is the one I'm anxiously waiting for), but she did receive my basic other blood tests. She told me I was in fact anemic (which I pretty much knew already). She also told me my Hemolytic was 28.3 (which is low I). It's tough to take in all the info so quickly and fully understand everything immediately. I take notes, and try to remember names and words of things she says but then it all seems to just run together.
Anyway, she told me to make sure I kept taking my iron daily and told me that as soon as she received my other tests she'd call me back so we can set a plan. I also still have an ultrasound scheduled for October 28th so that might bring back some results also.
In the meantime, I've been soooooo tired. Yesterday, I got home from work and slept for 2 hours. Then I woke up for a little bit and fell back asleep for another 2 hours. Ugh! I feel so lazy but I'm so tired to do anything. Everyone says not to worry about it. I will eventually re-gain my energy and be back to normal before I know it. However, it's all very discouraging. I just want to be back to normal, back to the gym, back to enjoying life. Yesterday, I hosted a "Girls Night Out" at the movie "About Time" and I was sooo tired and just not my usual self. I was out of breath walking up the stairs to my seat :(
I guess the best thing I can do is to keep my head up and know that I will get better eventually. And I need to remember that there are lots of people out there with WAY worse problems than me right? If you're going through a sickness right now, or maybe you're just not feeling yourself lately, keep your head up and keep a smile on your face. I truly believe that your emotional well-being affects your physical well-being so make sure you keep your spirits high. It will help you in the long run :)
