Well, I started the B12 drops on Monday. I still don't have the energy I am used to having. I was anemic last year when I went to Doc and she said eat more meat, take vitamins. I did but next visit(this year) I am still aenemic. I have tons of energy all summer long, but now I have a disinterested feeling in everything...I don't want to go out or do anything. I have become a night owl...and it's not a hoot! It will pass, I just feel like whining a bit, I guess.
Chatty, about the cookbook, what do you think? I guess we could research menopause and foods for a few months to see what we can come up with. I'm good with the menopause and you're good with the food...ha ha. Hey you just never know Chatty...maybe that's our calling for this year.
Eagle, I can picture your basement and you on the computer...wish I had a basement these days.
Jammie days for me here.

Chick if your anemic too then the B12 can only do 1/2 the job. It sounds like you need iron in your blood as well but be careful because too much iron is as bad as too little. I have done the research for the types of foods good for menopausal women both pre and post menopausal...I have a library you can't imagine of this stuff....

Chick,
You should check with your doctor about the cause of your anemia. There are several kinds and it can be very serious as hemoglobin in the blood carries oxygen to all of the tissues. The most common types are:

Pernicious anemia from a B12 deficiency which can result from a vegetarian diet without supplementation, lack of the intrinsic factor necessary for absorption of B12 in the stomach, alcoholism, and other causes. It can be treated by sublingual B12 to be absorbed under the tongue or B12 injections.

Iron deficiency anemia is the most common type of anemia and can result from a lack of iron in the diet or from hemmorrhage. It is treated with iron supplementation, but over injestion of iron can cause other problems so it is important to be followed by a physician.

Sickle cell anemia is an inherited defect in the red blood cell that impairs its ability to carry oxygen. It is often accompanied by type I diabetes and is most common in the black population.

There are other types of anemia, but those are the ones I've seen most often. Exhaustion is a common symptom of anemia, but it also lowers your resistance to disease and can be quite dangerous.

I hope you can get some help with it. Prayers coming your way.

Chatty, that's great. I am going to research and see if and how many books on the subject exist already. My daughter is going to be in Nevada in Feb. I am thinking of joining her. Maybe I can meet you for lunch or a book signing...or both...you just never know.
Smiles, thank you for your info and especially your prayers. I am going to make the appointment on Monday. I will ask her what type I have and what else I can do. Will keep you posted.
