Well, well, well...

I thought it was just all that danged hard assed work I'z been doin' movin' an' such but I'z been like real tired and havin' to take an afternoon nap and been a little on the dazed side wid the ol' thinkerator... No, I ain't so bad that I think George Bush is a good guy 'er nuthin' but been havin problems doin' math and seein' as I'z supposed to gearin' up to do another renovation, havin' a bummed thinkerator ain't good...

I thought maybe I was havin some dementia 'er halfhiemers stuff going on but, no, according to my doc a bl;ood test reveals that Iz got anemia... That's 'bout it... Yeah, she (my doc) had me have another blood test and though she ain't in until Monday mornin', her nurse said that the second test said the same thing: ANEMIA....

Well, she couldn't 'er wouldn't say if it was the kind that's badder than the other kind but did tell the P-Vine, upon the P-Vine's insistence, that it prolly ain't all that bad??? Whatever that means???

All I know is that yesterday I was tryin' to figure out the sqaure footage of a buildin' and I didn't have a clue what 7 X 7 was... And I was a little confused about a few other things... No, not George Bush...

Well, if anyone out there in Catburg has had similar stories 'er knows much about this stuff, I'd sure like to know 'bout it... Right now it has me a little concerned because I got way too much on my plate to be an idiot...

HMMMM Probably not menopause. Have you been checked for an infection? A bleeding ulcer? Had a colonoscopy? Anemia doesn't just happen, Bobert. Improve your diet, add some iron supplements (and fiber or you will suffer), and find out what is causing it.

My anemia was related to a huge fibroid tumor - also not likely in your case. My son used to become anemic when he forgot to eat - too busy playing at summer camp.

The problem with it is that you are run down and open to all sorts of infections a healthy person wouldn't even notice. Plus you're tired, cranky, forgetful, cranky, pasty-faced, cranky...keep it up and Kendall will have a rival curmudgeon.

Keep us posted.

Hey Bobert,

    Are you taking any kind of medications? Sometimes they can deplete your iron supplies just as much as dietary intake. And how's your blood sugars? Any issues there? That kind of tiredness and confusion/unable to think of stuff you KNOW can be related to low blood sugars too.

   Having been anemic, all I can say is let me know if they give you iron pills and you can find a way to take them without being nauseated....man I hate those things and as a result...don't take them nearly as much as I've been told to. UGH.

Take it easy and don't be too hard on yourself...take those naps when you need them!

there are many types of Anemia, Bobert and I am sure your physician will get you all fixed up with little or no effort on your part and without liver! Until this happens, I would drink a lot of alcohol and do absolutely no yardwork or anything that could be considered being helpful. Maybe requesting breakfast in bed would also be a good idea. Whatever you can do to ride this a bit until you are expected to behave again! good luck!

Bobert, I was anemic once, back about 15 years ago. Doc had me do a barium milkshake to see about ulcers, an endoscopy (they stick a light down yer throat), and a colonoscopy (they stick a light up yer...well, it ain't yer throat). I wanted 'em to do the endo and colono at the same time ("Doctor! I see a light!"), but they din't. They also din't find anything.

So they figured it was because I was taking Ibuprofen. Then about a year later I find out that a friend was also bad from taking Ibu -- in his case he was bleeding out through his stomach.

I quit taking it (except with food if there's nothin' else) and haven't had a problem since. I also take vitamins with iron.

My friend died. Not from the ibuprofen, from something else. Cancer, I think it was.

GIT IT CHECKED OUT!!!! Yer losin' blood someplace. If you don't want to do it fer yerself, do it for the P-vine. 'Cuz if you don't, I'm gonna come out there and hit you so hard upside the head yer brains are gonna rattle fer a month!

I have difficulty digesting and assimilating iron supplements, so I take a quarter of a tablet of betain hydrochloride (hydrochloric acid) with my iron supplements. That makes it possible for me to digest and properly utilize them. You might want to consider giveing this a try, Bobert.

I thought anaemic was an Irishman that only reached halfway up your leg, but since they invented PC I'm not so sure. Mind you I'm half Irish myself so maybe I better start thinking about dog shit. Talking about shit, one of the well known side effects of taking iron tablets is constipation, so there's another reason for drinking lots of Guinness.
Try chewing a bit of liquorice too, that should give you a good run for your money!

Hemo iron foods (red meat, seafood, poultry) are rich in iron and contain iron in a form that is easily absorbed by the body.

Red meat also has a special effect on iron absorption. Red meat, when eaten together with the vegetables, can boost the absorption of non-hemo iron by up to 400%.

Vitamin C has a similar positive effect on the absorption of iron

Tea contains tannin that could inhibit the absorption of iron. Avoid Tea

Foods Rich in Iron(in mg - 18 = daily requirement):

Blackstrap Molasses, one tablespoon 3.0
Dates or Prunes, ½ cup 2.4
Beef, Pork, Lamb, three ounces 2.3 to 3.0
Liver three ounces 8.0 to 25.0
Clams, Oysters ¾ cup 3.0
Dark meat Turkey ¾ cup 2.6
Pizza, cheese or pepperoni, ½ of 10 inch pie 4.5 to 5.5

Giok just mentioned the problem I encounter with iron supplements--if I take them at all I have to take them every other day, or cut the pill and take half a day or they plug me up. After a few doses it tends to turn your stool very dark, so you can presume that you're eliminating most of it anyway. Take a small dose, it's more than you're getting now, and boost your iron. I think the suggestion about the new climate is also viable--not necessarily because of what you're eating there, but perhaps what you're NOT eating there. If you been working as hard as one usually has to work when moving a household, then take a few quiet and relaxing moments (remember that calm room you were going to set up, your comfortable space in this new place?) and eat more regular meals, take a little iron supplement, and give yourself a break.

Good luck!

Well, after thinkin' on it and cogitatin' on it, I have found the cause to Bobert's anemia. It was so simple, so straightforward, it was staring me in the face all along! I could kick myself for not realizing sooner that his problem is caused by...vampires! Yup, them blood-suckin' critters from Rurisvania or wherever they're from. Somebody has imported 'em into Luray, Virginia and they've busted loose and found ol' Bobert to feast on. He's new in town, and them vampires probably heard one of the locals call him "new blood."

Now, vampires ain't as bad as they've been called. Yeah, they'll put the bite on their friends, stick 'em for the drinks, and just make bloody nuisances of themselves, but they'll never ask ya for a stake dinner. And they're always gone before sun-up. But still, Bobert, you'd best take care and wear garlic and 'specially make the P-vine wear garlic. Them vampires are jist waiting to sing "fangs for the mammaries."

My mother was diagnosed as being anemic, even though her diet contained plenty of iron. Her doctor said it was because her body wasn't producing enough of the digestive substances needed for her body to absorb and utilize it. He had her take the hydrochloric acid and that corrected the problem. That's how I found out about using the hc in that way. Might be worth checking into if nothing else turns up and/or fixes the problem.

Bobert - You need to investigate. Why are you anemic? In the meantime, bake with non-suphured, black strap molasses (just a little), use cast iron and eat your spinach.

Spinach doesn't have to be slimy. Cook it fresh with very little water (the water clinging to the leaves is enough) until it just barely wilts. Add garlic and butter. Yum!

Spinach salad with oranges and almonds is also very good.

Take small doses of iron supplement at a time.

Carol - I think I mentioned this before but alot of oxalic acid can be removed prior to ingestion. My ex-husband could not tolerate oxalic acid but loved rhubarb. I pour boiling water over the chopped rhubarb and let it sit a few minutes. I then pour off the water and alot of oxalic acid. What remains is rhubarb without the bite. It actually works well.

I know someone who actually makes wine from rhubarb. I have told him I think its a bad idea but I think its too late. He drinks alot of this wine and I think it actually affects his mind in ways that other wines do not. I can't imagine what it is doing to his body.

Sounds like "the change" to me--have you tried estrogen?
But seriously folks, I sometimes have to take Kelp tabs because I am allergic to almost all veggies & all melons & many fruits. You can also eat dark chocolate--I'm not allergic to that!

   From my mother's side of the family I inherited many of the family traits, including chronic anemia. Since time immemorial, the women in the family used cast iron till all that aluminum came out. After my mother inherited her mother's castiron skillet--that Granny bought second hand & the handle was broke at the time almost 90 years ago--she didn't have the anemia anymore.

   When I was rear-ended in my vehicle 4 1/2 years ago, what was thought to be concussion related hard-to-think-straight-itis has continued. I have alot of trouble with anything to do with numbers. I can no longer memorize lyrics & tunes easily, it takes months, & sometimes the lyrics never seem to stay. Turns out that when your head whips forward-whiplash, more damage is sometimes done when the head whips back, like slight swelling or tearing of the brainstem or surrounding tissues. This has caused some of these problems for me. I almost need a retriever whenever I attempt to have a conversation, because I frequently cannot 'retrieve' a word from my brain & have to substitute some other word. I tire way too easily, & have headaches.    Any chance that you flopped your head around whilst tossing boxes & furniture? You might check with a good Osteopath, They're one-stop-shopping-convenient, as they know all about the chiropractic type manipulation AND can give you groovey drugs!

Well, well, well...

I ain't even gotten the nummers from the doc yet but should have them tomorrow and the nummers oughta give us a clue as to what to do... I still have more time when I'm fine than not... Mornings are fine, fir instance... I'm all clear headed and feel "bold and bulky" but as the day goes on, 'bout late afternoon, I need a good 30 minute nap...

I loves spinich so that ain't gonna be no propblem... And IO love collards... Not mustard greens, however... Raisins is good, too...

I ain't into eatin' critters livers, tho, so that ain't gonna happen...

I told my mom yesterday and she has been a health nuit all her life and she diodn't seem too concerned at all and gave me the samwe advice that lots of you all have given me...

I'm sure Doc BallBuster will uyse this as yet another way to try to get me to quit my six-pack a night habit but as long as the liver functions stay good, which they always are, I'll just tell here what I always tell her, "Firget it, lady..."

Well, gotta make a little hay whilst Iz feelin' up to it... My business partner and her family are coming down today to visit with us and our loaner herd of miniture horses...

As per usual, thanks fir sharin' yer ideas and experiences...

It's not just oxalic acid -- too much of anything is bad for you. Even iron.

Too much spinach can also leech calcium out of the bones. Too much Vitamin A can cause blindness. And the list goes on.

As for collards -- hey, Bobert! Come on out and I'll cook up a mess with sidemeat and a little cornbread to sop up the potlikker!

Poached bear!

Hey, my buddy was back under the camp when I arrived yesterday morning. The flies are so bad this time of year (although there were hardly any flies of any type yesterday until dark and after 9AM today) that I was the only one of five close neighbours at camp in the past several weeks. So, the animals get used to us being away.... bear under the camp where it's cool.... big bull moose in the driveway.... rabbits on the lawn.... perrigrine falcon on the upper deck railing.... pack of coyotes howling less than a hundred yards away.... etcetera.

Ditto the greens: all you can hold.

Cook EVERYTHING in cast iron (like they said).

And, keep a pot of chili going: red meat, lots of kidney and other beans, a little molasses, a stout beer, along with all the usual spices. That's what I cooked for a friend with anemia: it's a bowl of iron, easily digested and yummy.

Take care of yourself.

"...chili going: red meat, lots of kidney and other beans, a little molasses, a stout beer, along with all the usual spices." And all them greens ta others mentioned. Ya know, throw dehydration from shittin yer drawers all day on top of anemia and ya got a real problem. Of course, you'll have no problem with the nap thing... ya won't have any time.

With that diet, all I can add is ya better get some Preparation H and a good diaper rash cream. And, LOTS a swipe.

Well, now I am really steamed....

This ol' gal is such a prude and every time I see her she nags and nags me about drinkin' beer... Okay, I mighta mentioned that before... I'm here to tell ya' that if I were to go to her wioth poison Ivy she'd blame it on beer!!! I swear she would... As God as my witness, Doc Meanie woudl blame the poison ivy on beer...

So, ah hah... The new test results came back last week and Doc BeerHater was on vacation but like on Friday I called and her nurse, NurseFromHell, RN, told me that tho she couldn't tell me what the results were that I most likely still had anemic levels in my blood... Thanks fir nuthin, RN (Registered Nut)...

So I fret all weekend... Actually I didn't... I had a nice weekend...

So another nurse, who must be like Doc BobertNagger's siter, calls me today and says that all my nummers are no normal and that I ain't anemic BUT Doc MeanieMouth says I should cut my beer consumption to no more than two a day!!! Like that's gonna happen...

Ya' know what? Now that I've moved down here to Luray, I'm goina' find me a new doctor.... I mean, why should I have have to drive 70 miles to be nagged????

I don't think I had anemia in the 1st place... Them folks prolly just made the entire thing up to scare me into living like they do as prudes...

That's me story and, as per usual, unless someone comes up with pictorial evidence to the contrary, Iz sticken' to it...

No wonder I'z tired... In the last 3 months I have sold one propert, purchased 4, loaded up 19 trailer loads of stuff, painted my old house, played music regularlly and kept up with ther P-Vine's honey-do list...

Yeah, I think I have figgured out why Iz tired and a tad confuzerated...

Like the ol' Humble Pie song, "I don't need no doctor, fir what is ailin' me....

And as fir the confuzeration situation... Don't knock it if ya ain't tried it.... No, really, okay maybe I was a little confuzerated an' maybe my red corps-pussles were down a tad... Ntuhin' a couple side order of beets can't fix....

Plus, like I said, if ya ain't tried confusion, don't knock it... Ain't no secret round this joint that I occasionally get a tad confuzerated, is it???
