Health matters

I have decided i have to once and for all start looking after my health, mental and physical, inside and out.

Due to an extremely low iron count which has been as low as it is for over a decade, a specialist appointment saw me take further measures to try and improve the chances of bettering my health.
I had a Mirena fitted which i am hoping, along with an Iron Infusion, will give me a better quality of life over the next 5+ years.

I hope to have the iron transfusion done in the coming weeks… then who knows how long it will be before i start feeling different to what i currently do.

I forget what it is like to not feel constantly tired, lethargic, ultimately being called lazy most of the time, because people don’t realise any better… they think nothing of calling me lazy.
My mind is constantly in overdrive though, always reminding me of what i have to get done, what i should be doing… That in itself can be draining and tiring for me.

I have also recently picked up knitting needles again. My late Nan first taught me to knit when i was about 7 years old, possibly a bit younger. I have since knitted off and on over the years, when i feel the urge. I have gone through stages of making scarves, then it was of making teddy bears, and most recently it has once again been scarves, bed socks/slippers, baby blankets and beanies too.
I am enjoying making beanies. I want to challenge myself and knit a jumper but i find it a bit daunting. I am worried it won’t work out as planned and i will have to pull it all apart and knit something else.
I find knitting relaxes me. I believe it is good for my mental health as when i am knitting, i am concentrating on what i have on the needles and i forget about what is troubling me.
