Doctor Visit And Other Shit

I went to see my doctor this morning. Everything is all hunky dory except my blood cells are all elevated. He wants me to come back in a month. He says it's Polycythemia and that it might be from high iron levels or just stress. He is worried about heart attack or leukemia. I know I don't have either. It's just high iron. I otherwise feel like shit. So tired all the time.

So a blood test in one month for iron levels, and he is trying me out on something for all my pain. I'm just waiting to see what it will be because what he prescribed will interfere with my serotonin levels and the Cymbalta. I love my Pharmacist. They caught this possible problem. These guys are the oldest pharmacy in town and they know everyone and their problems and they deliver to your home too.

Mmkay, Dark Mother turned me on to this book. I have been reading "Women Food and God" by Geneen Roth since Sunday, off and on because of stuff I normally have to do around the house. Well let me tell you, ladies, if you can go to the library or even the bookshop, whatever is best. I would get this book and read it. It will help you to lose weight. I kid you not.

But you have to really  read it not just the words. Look into what this woman is trying to do. She gets into the heart of the matter. It has helped me immensely since I decided to start this "diet". I have since stopped dieting but I am losing weight!!  I will continue to post my weightloss on the ticker every week just to keep a record. Thank you Dark Mother for opening my eyes and stopping my yo yo dieting. A great big hug and a kiss goes to you my dear friend.


  1. I knew it would make you see "diet" as the four letter word it is. Actually, it's the only four letter word I detest, all the other I cuddle with and read poetry to.

  2. Diets are crap - I wrote a post about this a while back, instead of dieting caring for yourself and considering the source of your food, and generally just being more thoughtful before shoveling it in. I will never, ever give up dark chocolate and wine though. Fuck that.

  3. Mama's Thyme: I understand completely. Chocolate and (I prefer with) wine should be the norm for all woman.
