Well, I took blood work a couple weeks ago, and the tests came back saying I was anemic. Basically means I lose a lot of blood cells and bleed a lot. I have to start taking 4 pills a day, 2 of which being birth control, so I can stop having irregular and abnormally heavy periods. Gross, right? It also explains why I had to stay home from school today due to almost passing out in the shower, because I got so lightheaded that I couldn’t even see anything. Ugh, but I’m strong enough to take whatever life throws at me, and if dealing with anemia is something I have to learn to live with, I guess I will. On the bright side, my periods will start going back to normal with the birth control and I will no longer be cold for no reason. :)
