Had a very scary time last night. I'm extremely anemic and haven't been taking my iron and vitamins daily like I should. They have to be taken with food and I either don't have them with me or I forget at the time. At any rate one of the effects of anemia is heart palpitations. I had a very bad episode last ight when I went to bed my throat closed up and my heart started jumping around all over the place. It was a very long and draining episode, I even took two nitro tablets after my husband called an all night pharmacy to find out about side effects and conditions for taking them. Today I slept half the day to regain my strength. The doctor wants me to take my iron 3 times a day, so I have to try and do better. Having your heart jump around is a very scary feeling. Hopefully next time I'll have something more upbeat to talk about. I really want to be able to start exercising and getting on the right track. Everyone have a nice and safe 4th.
