Life Is Getting Better

Recommended Posts

I've had my 5th iron infusion this week (5 more to go) and my ferritin is 99 (hasn't been for years) and my hemoglobin is 135. I feel really good- here are 10 reasons why

1. I finally have the energy to chase my children around, and actually catch them

2. I can focus at work and finally catch up on the last 2 years worth of mess

3. I'm getting used to potato and corn pasta and it's not so bad

4. I can fantasize about great bread with other celiac friends, its almost as good as...

5. My weight is going up

6. My anxiety is going down

7. I'm sleeping better

8. The dry skin, eyes seems to be improving, just in time for bathing suit season

9. I have to be organized about family meals so we're not wasting $ on take-out and fatty, nasty stuff

10. I am finally in control (somewhat) of my illness, rather than it controling me.

Tune in next week when I'm having a total meltdown over the craving for a hotdog bun and cold beer!
