Anemia (My story)

For years i have suffered from anemia. Anemia is a condition in which there is a deficiency of red cells or of haemoglobin in the blood, resulting in pallor and weariness. I have suffered a lot from iron deficiency as a result of having anemia, i have also suffered from body aches, lack of energy and skin paleness. Unusually I have also experienced something known as Pica (an attraction to eating non-nutritious substances such as drywall, chalk, rocks, dirt). Perhaps this is because my body lacks nutrition because of the anemia. I have ignored my condition for years. I was diagnosed years ago.

Now I have realised it is very important to tackle my problem, i consistently sleep and have 0 energy. I will be seeing my doctor soon so I can recieve a prescription for Iron tablets to help me with my anemia. Amemia has had a vast effect on my physical health -- I struggle to walk far distances because of my consistent body aches and pains. I am actually not sure if this illness is hereditary or how i came to acquire it.

I have heard of people that have almost died from the Illness and have become hospitalized as a result of it. I will be tackling my anemia very soon, it seems it has become progressively worse, i struggle to get out of bed and everyday I am in pain.
If you suspect you may have similar symptoms, make sure you see your general practitioner and get a blood test as soon as possible to identify whether you may have anemia. It can be fatal.

Iron deificiency can be very dangerous, before going to a pharmacy and getting any old iron tablet: make sure it's the right one. It's a good idea to see your doctor because at least you can be prescribed a medication specific to the level of your anemia.
