So I am anemic.
And if i don't get enough iron, my brain and body goes a little loopy.
Other contributing factors to anemic freak outs: not enough sleep, exercise, blood loss, stress.
This week, i have been feeling super anemic, tired, slow, over active brain/hard to focus, emotional, needing a lot of alone time. It's a strange thing when you are hyper aware of your body and can understand the source of different feelings, physical and emotional feelings.
I am feeling good in most areas of life right now, but the anemia's effect on my brain spins me for loops. its a lack of oxygen in your blood... aka, my brain is low on fuel. so it's workng over time and making my ADD go crazy.
It is finals week, and i am trying real hard to focus. My legs were shaking like crazy in one of my classes on Monday because my mind is just so buzzy.
To try to focus, i wrote out all the words and phrases i associate with my mind, thought process, how i communicate. Here is the list:
(contributors: artistic, heavy right brained, mystic mindset, ADD, anemia, introverted)
filled with questions
opinionated but relative
answers that lead to more questions
desiring facts, but finding more questions
needless to say, i am feeling a little loopy this week.
