Fatigue

I have been so tired lately. Bone tired. I've decided it's time to do something about it and I took my problems to the place where all problem can be solved. Google.

This is what I've learned.
Fatigue is a feeling of weariness, tiredness, or lack of energy that does not go away when you rest. They understand exactly how I feel!

Drink plenty of water
I can do this.

Be careful with caffeine
This could be part of the problem. Okay, a huge part of the problem. Curse thee Dr. Pepper!

Eat breakfast
Done.

Don’t skip meals
Why would anyone do this?

Don’t crash diet
I tried this once. It was the longest 23 minutes of my life.

Eat a healthy diet
I've been doing pretty well with this. There's always room for improvement and more broccoli.

Don’t overeat
I've been really good with this lately.

Eat iron rich foods
I need to eat iron rich foods. The only iron rich food I know of is steak. I don't really care for steak. I'll ask my sister-in-law Heidi about this. She knows everything.

There's also a section on mid-afternoon energy slump. Mid-afternoon slump is so rough for me! I can barely cope when 3:00 rolls around. It tells me to eat protein with carbohydrates for lunch. I'll be having a tuna sandwich today.

The article tells me to contact my doctor for help. What, no google?

I apologize for this dull blog post. Did it put you to sleep? Here let me wake you up with a photo taken by one of my sons yesterday. I'll choose one from the 83 pictures he took in 3 minutes.

Totally worth the read, right?

I to have never understood skipping meals either...pure foolishness...I can understand swapping meals though, like having breakfast for dinner...that is genius.

Maybe you're anemic? Mom was, you know. Maybe you should, after all, go to a real doctor and get a real blood test rather than rely solely on Google.
