Anemia

I want to give a quick update about what’s been happening. I have been dealing with severe anemia again.

My iron is extremely low in my body, making me feel run down exhausted, be dizziness, and concentration is difficult. I am handling everything day by day.

My doctor believes somewhere internally that my body is losing a little bit of blood whether that’s in my digestive track or being caused by my menstrual cycle is yet to be determined.

I’m in the process now of getting tests done and being referred to other doctors to determine the causes of my anemia. I will be starting iron infusions in the next couple of weeks, which I’m hoping it will be next week. Until then I’m just taking it easy.

Last night, I edited two chapters of my manuscript. I am starting to get immersed within my story again, and that is a very good thing. Since I have been away from it. It’s also good to have distance away from the story, looking at it with fresh eyes at the material that I have already written to help find the errors and make sure that the plot is understandable to the reader.

One thing I realized from being away from my story so long is that I need better notes; so I know how to keep things going on within the plot with the new changes, and some of the ideas that I had previously thought about before I became sick. I’m hoping the new software that I using will help with that in the future. And I did make a lot of notes in my previous draft and that is helping quite a bit.

The plot is strong and my cast of characters is developing nicely, but there were some changes that I wanted to make within the story, and I just haven’t found those notes. What I wanted to do is coming back to me, which is a good thing. So what I have learned about this is that I need to make well-detailed notes or have a better outline for future manuscripts. Because when I do get sick it does take a lot out of me physically and mentally, and I need to be prepared for that.
