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.
I am very proud of myself, I finally decluttered my desk! After I released Wednesday’ Topic, and I cleaned my desk by getting rid of things that I didn’t need. It is nice to see that area looking nice and organized too.
When having Rheumatoid Arthritis can make it difficult to clean. For me, I find it easier to do my deep cleaning into sections and then do a maintenance clean, like doing laundry, picking up trash, and putting things away.
After being sick, and dealing with a flare-up, and now, I am behind in my chores. I refused to do the catch-up game, so, I just start where I am at. That helps me not to feel stressed out.
Another, thing that I am doing, if there are items that I no longer need or want I am getting rid of them. That helps me to reduce on the clutter.
It also helps to have realistic expectations of what I can get done in a short time period or during a good day when I have energy.
