    Yep Vida I'll do that. I feel dirty if I can't brush my teeth two times in the day. I still hope I had understood how important it's when I was youger too.

    I would give some of my time to you Jehanzeb. I've it too much in my current life situation and almost nothing to do .

    Ahh it's almost 3:00am here. Maybe I should go to the bed?

    Hi everyone! How has your day gone?

    Well the counsellor went okay but my doctor's appointment didn't. I am severely anaemic (to the point normally only seen in women who have just given birth: the doctor was amazed I was walking around!) and it could be something called pernicious anaemia, which is a lifelong condition. She's running more tests so I had to have more blood taken this morning, which has led to me feeling utterly horrible as I'm scared of needles. I'm fine as soon as the needle is in me, I can deal with the ache and the pain and that doesn't bother me, I just can't control feeling sick and panicky beforehand. Key in the depression and I've been really, really horrible this morning.

    Fortunately one of my housemates came with me, held my hand, talked to me, etc, and for the first time in what must be ten or more years I didn't cry! I just feel very tired now, because she took four vials of blood.

    I'm not letting myself think about the results, which I will get on Thursday.

    Oh, Claire, my heart goes out to you. My grandfather had pernicious anemia. I am mildly enemic, but it isn't that hard to live with. Perhaps a BIT more challenging to a vegan...

    Prayers and blessings winging your way, Claire. Watch for feathers!

    We had a dog that was anemic after having puppys. We gave her malt tablets. Maybe you could just drink lots of malteds or eat lots of malt balls (do they have them in the UK?
    Hope you are feeling better Claire.

    Hi eventnwithwinston, how are you?

    Ohh claire I'm sorry for that . You got a lot of bad stuff at one go now.

    Yeah, a lot of stuff has hit me at once >< And the depression makes it harder to cope with the other stuff, while the fatigue and everything makes it harder to be active, which would help my depression.

    Pernicious anaemia occurs when the body doesn't produce intrinsic factor, so it can't absorb Vitamin B12 and so can't get enough iron either. So if I do have that, I could eat a whole cow every day and still not absorb enough iron.

    For a healthy woman, haemoglobin levels are usually around 11-16, I forget the particular units of concentration in this case. Mine were 8.1.

    You seem like a strong, confident person Claire, so I have no boubt you're going to get through this :)

    There's a storm here now, but it doesn't seem to be too bad :) I love lying inside and here the wind and rain hitting my window..

    Hello. How is everyone?

    I like storms too. We have at the moment some degrees (*C) under zero and snow.

    It's been very very warm here, a few days ago I saw a thermometer that said 8°C! I was shocked. I would have stared at it all day if it weren't for the fact that I was on a bus

    So I only get rain... (rain is my least favourite type of weather)

    But my mom found this awesome place just outside of Reykjavík that I really really want to move to! And it's so cheap because it's not in the city!
    I hope we'll go check it out
