Nyxie--I'm beginning to think that the doctors are the one's with all the anxiety. I also wonder what meds they are taking????

I am glad to say that some of my symptoms are getting much better while others wax and wane depending on what I do to exacerbate them. I now have energy to work out in the yard for at least 3 hours avoiding sun as much as possible. I know that I am pushing hard because I suffer a lot afterwards. I don't comprehend a little at a time. I've never let grass grow under my feet. But I love it! I had to watch my yard/garden for 8 months go downhill and it killed me. My short-term goal is to get that into shape I'm 3/4 of the way there already, then my house the way I like it and eventually return to work and the gym ASAP! Maybe the gym is a long-term goal LOL!Slowly but surely. I never would have believed that something like this would have happened to me. You just never know.

So, how is your diet coming along? That has to be one of the hardest things to do. Just taking the iron and vitamin supplements that I take drives me CRAZY! But if you learn to do it correctly it really makes a difference and actually works! Thanks for the information on the diet, I had to do this for years with my husband and his migraines. I hated it, he reacted to everything. When we got him on the right med combo it was resolved. We still have to watch out for a couple of foods. Yes, I do eat all the things that I was tested for. My food allergies have probably changed by now as well. I don't think I'm up to all that eliminating right now. I try to eat so many different things to build my blood up that it would be insane for me. Maybe one day.

I see the Endo next week. I have several things being tested before going. Then I should have more after the apt. I called and asked for a Ferritin test and he said NO! I was really disappointed because he ordered it the last time. He was the one that found my anemia after discussing my symptoms. After I get through with him, I plan on having it, we shall see. I don't even have any idea where my HGB is right now, it has now been 2 months since I knew my last numbers. That is the longest I have gone without knowing in 9 months now! I'm thinking that the anemia caused the black in the corners of my eyes and may just take a while to resolve. It can't just dissapear overnight I wouldn't think?

Thanks again for your great information and support. PS--Sorry it took me so long to respond I didn't see that you all were chatting. FLFLOWERGIRL:)
