Complain, Complain

I've been complaining FOREVER about my chronic fatigue. I most likely think its from pernicious anemia, which has affected most of the ladies on my mom's side of the family. But the doctors I've seen just push that aside: pernicious anemia isn't hereditary. [Yeah right: great grandmother, grandmother, mother, Aunt, 2 cousins.]

So, I specificly set up an appointment with Dr N--- at my family practice; I know she's very nice and would be the most likely to give me a B12 shot. I went with an arsenal full of reasons why I should get one. I had a huge speech prepared. I wasn't gonna leave w/o getting my way.

Yeah...

She is SO SO SO SO nice! I hardly had to say a thing and she was like: "Okay, lets get you that shot."

I'm thrilled.

Now let's just hope that that's what my problem was. Hope that I get my energy back up!

Do you make time for exercise? Cuz I know when I'm down and out and totally tired out because of my heart condition, if I push myself to exercise, amazingly enough I actually have more energy. Just a thought! :)

I hope you find the answers you're looking for. I know that my mommying suffers when I am tired.

Glad your doctor listened to you and did what you asked her to do! Thats what all doctors SHOULD do... but a lot don't! I hope you start feeling better!
