Reminds us that it's okay to still be human with a spectra of emotions right now...
So how are you doing?
Really would like to know....
I have been having a few off days... Feeling sluggish and fatigued beyond measure...along with asthma flares... makes things hard and I have to push extra hard to get things done when this happens ..
Well it came to a head today...it was so bad today that I barely got out of bed... When I get like this I feel even worse cause I feel guilty about being so anti-social...and at the same time I can't help this... It doesn't occur often but when it does it hits hard...
No its not the corona virus...no fever, no cough etc..
No...I have Hashimoto's (autoimmune) and PCOS (metabolic)...plus asthma..all things that are at play right now...mentioned in my introduction video the other day...
Furthermore, I had some blood work that showed I was having iron deficiency issues...started the OTC treatment along with making sure my food intake increased with iron rich foods too... B12 was fine and so were my thyroid levels (Hashimoto's) and female hormones/insulin levels (PCOS) etc...however I see more blood work in the near future to make sure other changes aren't needed...
At first the change was great...felt energized and probably over did stuff...
Now I'm feeling the affects... Hoping to gain some balance soon...doing some self care currently by resting, eating healthy, drinking water and maintaining the required wash hands and social distancing...
Well, I wanted to let you know..Im still here and will be back little by little...
See even a Nutrition Intern and Health & Wellness Coach has health and other issues that occur in life that can knock them for a loop too..
With all that said.. How are you doing today??
In all that's occurring don't forget to take care of yourself and your family whether blood or not...

So far I can check yes to almost all of the above...
