I feel pretty rubbish at present. I was made redundant in my job in 2012 due to ill health, never felt well enough to work.
Managed to get a job in care work but I was not eating properly, sleeping properly. I got about 6 hours sleep, weight dropped to 6 stone and I needed to help my mum and dad who were both unwell. Things came to a head a year later and I was back on the dole again. It took months for the circles under my eyes to lighten. My partner said if I didn't leave that job I could've been seriously ill. My shifts were
8am - 9am plus 4 miles there and back
12.30 - 13.30 plus 4 miles there and back
17.05 - 18.05 plus 4 miles there and back
Monday to Friday
Constant back and forth to doctors and endo.
My eyes are puffy, eyebrows falling out, swelling in neck with nodules, dry skin, heavy cycles which come without warning, feeling cold. I am iron deficient diagnosed 2010, folate deficient diagnosed 2016 taking 5mg folic acid, low in B12 diagnosed 2017 having B12 injections and vitamin D deficient diagnosed 2013 taking 3000IU
FERRITIN 55 (30 - 400)
FOLATE 2.6 (2.5 - 19.5)
VITAMIN B12 238 (190 - 900)
VITAMIN D TOTAL 60.1 (50 - 75 SUBOPTIMAL)
