    Yes. I uh...spent some time with my husband before he went to work.

    Okay. So my clotting level was perfect. Supposed to be between 2 and 3. I was 2.4 Nice to know I am still stable on this program. Sadly, no chance of lowering my dosage. Just for reference, most heart patients can reach the magic 2-4 range with under 5 mg of coumadin. I am on 14mg.

    I described my symptoms to the nurse. She felt that it was anemia caused by my period. The recommendation is to supplement iron from a few days to a week before my due date and throughout the "circus". Good thing I am pretty regular.

    I hope this is the answer and not that my body can't handle lchf or that my adrenal fatigue is flaring.

    Thanks for the concern everyone.

    Paula, I was like this when the Russian Circus was horribly wrong for me AKA pre ablation. I would feel like I would pass out but I never took iron. What I did was to eat more red meat and added liver a few days before the circus stared and during. It really helped. Maybe a good fatty roast or a steak would help too?

    yeah, for a frolic in the hay! Well I guess it is good to know your blood is stable. Couldn't the nurse have done a finger prick iron test while you were there? ah well, you have an excuse to take a nap!

    No, it had to be a full on test. I took a double dose of iron (56mg) about 1pm. The extreme lethargy has lifted and the breathlessness is better. This I can live with.

    The preliminary estimate on the car damage is $2600. I bring it in on the 7th and it should be done by the 14th.

    Bah, cars are so expensive . But I'm glad you are feeling better and the repair time is not too long. And that you can drive it safely even with the damage! Lots of pluses .

    My deer hit was a $50 junk yard fix. The perks of being married to a mechanic

    my motivation

    As per Marcadav:
    Do 30-60 days clean primal.
    No grains, sugar, alcohol.
    Eat 3 meals and primal snacks.
    Don't track food.
    Don't tweak.
    Don't expect issues to go away quickly. Instead, just follow the plan and see how things play out.
    Decide on an exercise plan you can/will do consistently during the 30-60 days and then do it.
