the blood letting

12pm. Tuesday. April 28.

Yesterday was a complete loss. The only thing I did was post on here. My fatigue was so heavy I spent most of the day trying to distract myself from it. I did manage to hit my steps goal as I need to hit that no matter how I feel. Today is slightly improved but not great. I’m already on the couch and in rest mode.

11am. Thursday. April 30.

Light on the updates. This week was a bit stressful. On one front, finances were tight. That has worked itself out temporarily. Though we are still potentially tight depending on when the IRS payment happens. I lost some sleep over that Tuesday night. I usually sleep well.

On the other hand, the potential for continued disability is before us. Based on the fact that i am heavily fatigued 5 or 6 days out of every week (and moderately fatigued on the other days) and unable to sit at my desk for more then 2-3 hours at a time on a good day – its just unlikely ill be ready to work anytime soon. And now we have to get ahead of that by other finding a quick fix to my health or doing what we can to ensure the disability payments continue.

We had an appointment with my Crohns doctor yesterday. My tests for Crohns have been good in terms of intestinal damage. So he thinks it may be another factor. I absorb iron at a high rate and he thinks it is possible that is causing the fatigue. So I may need to actually release some iron that may be affecting my liver or adrenoglands. The best way to do that is through bloodletting. Yep, bloodletting. 

So I’m calling the vampires now to get an appointment to donate. If they will not accept me I can do it through UPMC where they take the blood but don’t use it. Ill google leaches in a minute (so not doing that).
