Since yesterday’s post I’ve thought of a couple more post-Ferinject improvements:
11. My gut functions a lot better now I’m not taking oral iron. What a joy that is!
12. I’m saving money, partly by not paying for cleaning and food delivery, but also because I’m able to cook and eat more frugally than when my prime consideration had to be conserving my energy.
Possibly some of the benefits I’ve listed are due wholly or partly to the fact that I had a good rest over Christmas. Also I kept my diary completely clear for January so that I could live entirely at my own pace. Having no commitments meant that I’ve able to test my new energies without having to worry about whether I’ll be well enough for prearranged events.
Pushing myself a bit without dire consequences has boosted my confidence to the extent that I’ve put three things in my diary between now and next Monday. My desire to get on with life has superseded my need for a whole month of total rest and retreat!
