Remember thy iron levels...keep them holy.

As I sit here stuck home with bronchitis and sinusitis, I ponder how I got here yet again. Could it be that at 34, my respiratory system is breaking down? My allergies have been the worst this year. I had bronchitis last month. And it seems every time I catch my daughter's two day cold in turns into a month long illness for me.

Aw the answer lies in those little iron levels...

Yes I'm anemic. Have been for the past fourteen years. Iron-deficient. Was even B-12 deficient for a short while a few years back. It seems like such a minor thing. So I'm alittle sleepy and sluggish at times I tell myself. But it really is a major thing.

Since I hate taking iron pills(They're murder on the stomach.) I've made myself more suspectible to bronchitis and sinusitis. And guess where all those migraines are coming from too. So I guess I learned my lesson.

So now I'm sucking down TWO iron pills a day, plus allergy meds, plus an antibiotic, plus...well lets not go all into my daily prescription load. lol

But at least I get a week off from work...

An Indie Show? In Jersey? What am I thinking?

Feeling more alive this week which is great so I can finally start working on the next phase of my business. I have not been able to concentrate for weeks. I am planning a shopping event featuring 30 to 50 designers. I finally found a place that is perfect. Only problem is they are booked through till January. I'm not sure I want to do a fair during a winter month. I'm leaning towards pushing back until spring 2008. April is usually a good month. I need to check what is going on in the industry then. Other than that I'm good. No worries.
