Because I am clueless.
Yesterday I got a letter from my GP telling me my haemoglobin had dropped and I should make an appointment to discuss it. Suddenly it all made sense:
The increased aches and pains. (I'd been thinking the meth wasn't working.)
The lack of energy. (I'd blamed too much entertaining.)
The need to use my blue inhaler. (I'd blamed the weather.)
The lack of concentration. (I'd blamed the tiredness plus anno domini.)
The mild headaches. (I'd blamed trying to concentrate when it was difficult.)
(I was never any good at adding up :oops: )
So, I'm booked in. Meanwhile, more of all the iron-rich foods and less of my beloved tea.
What a plonker :roll:
