Finally, finally!, finally the “take two birth control pills a day” solution seems to be working. I found out that if I take them 12 hours apart, that is the key. So things are finally getting better. Good thing too, because yesterday did not start off well – the iron deficiency was really obvious. I felt woozy and dizzy a few times, especially after taking a shower – I think the heat got to me. I ate meat every chance I could get and took an iron tablet, and by about 3pm or so I was feeling much better. Adreniline probably helped take over too, since that is about the same time that Regina and I started shooting the wedding here in Asheville!
So I made it through the day just fine, and I’m pumping up on iron and water today and feeling pretty darn good. Whew! Attending a workshop all week while feeling less than human would not be fun.
The weather here is AMAZING. Amazing!!! As someone said, we had a “Chamber of Commerce” day for the wedding yesterday. Outdoors with the groomsmen for a few hours? No problem – we didn’t even break a sweat. It was a bit cool when the sun went down, and we were pretty cold by the time we walked 3-4 blocks back to the car, but I would rather be cold any day than hot! One of the best men commented on how it was like summer for him, coming from Colorado. I commented that it was like winter for me, coming from Houston!
We were exhausted by the time we were driving home, but needed a few essentials and stopped at Ingles to pick them up – only to discover that someone has bought one of those crazy witches!!! Can you believe it? I mean… WOW.
