I want energy and I want it now!

I know I'm being too impatient (forgive me, Lord.) It's only been 2 weeks since my surgery and I know it takes a long time for my iron level to get back to normal after it being so critically low. I just baked some chocolate chip cookies and I feel like I cooked a seven course meal! Yesterday my husband drove to Walmart (I was having withdrawals ) but I thought I would be OK to just pick up a few things. Big mistake . I almost passed out before I could get to the car. But I truly am thankful to God for healing me, even if I do get tired of being tired!

I hope you take care of yourself more. I know you can't wait doing nothing, but always think for a long term work. I mean if you wear down your energy now it might lead you to a serious complications and will have a hard time to go back to your normal routine. Than in having patience a bit in order for you to be fully recovered until you can go back now to everything you usually love to do than never.

Well just take it easy and don't over due it. If you feel like your gonna pass out just sit down and then walk some more. I hope you can get your levels back up soon so you don't have to keep dealing with that.

Be patient, it takes a long time to bounce back after surgery. Doctors always tell us to not do much for six weeks, and then to take it easy. Take one day at a time, trusting the Lord for strength, and you will one day be back to normal.

Thanks for the wise advice. I sure wouldn't have made it this far without God's mercy and help. I'll try to be more patient!

I hope you continue to look after yourself - maybe a bit better than you are at the moment!

I think you should get more iron from natural sources such as green leafy and purple colored vegetables and many more iron rich food to help your condition.
