My medical test results are in and I have been diagnosed with very low iron. My Ferritin is 3...while the normal range is 10-150.

No wonder I'm exhausted all of the time.
And cranky.

I'm scheduled for an iron IV next week. It's odd because I'm being sent to a cancer center and I'll sit with people who are receiving their chemo treatments.

I want to look them straight in the eye and emit my sincere admiration and encouragement.

I hope to not cry.

Because I realize how random sickness and tragedy are and that we all live only a hair's thickness away from them.
