Am I anemic?
Jul 13, 2004
Hello my friends! This is my first thread at this message board.

The reason I am here is because I have had certain symptoms, literally for many many years now, and I am just now getting fed up with them. I know that there is so much more to me - hidden underneath whatever ails me, but I don't know what it is and I can't fix it.

Perhaps I'm stubborn, I haven't been to a doctor about this yet either - but I am very seriously considering going.

I am a 36 year old male. I am regularly very pale and "sickly" looking. And it makes me look disgusting. And I know that it's not the "real" me because occasionally I have a healthier, more natural color and I look better.

But I look disgustingly WHITE most of the time.

And it's not a kind of paleness that says "you just need some sun"! It's a pale from deep within.

I also wake up with hideous bags under my eyes.

Sometimes I get rid of the bags under my eyes and develop a more natural complexion and color as the day goes on - but usually it takes me half the day to look and feel awake.

Sometimes I feel like there are serious cobwebs and black clouds in my brain - I can't really explain it better than that - I'm just out of it.

I'm definitely suffering from something and I just don't know what it is.

I just feel like I am walking around at only 50% of my potential.

I am tired. I am sick of looking so ghostly. My energy is gone. And my self esteem and confidence is gone too.

I am only a shell of who I really am - who I really know that I could and should be.

Any help would be tremendously appeciated.

:)

See your doctor and have a physical, if there is nothing in that arena wrong, then ask for a referral to a psychological evaluation.
