can be a VERY bad thing. My imagination is running wild right now. The practical side of me is trying to take control and maintain a sensible view of the situation, but so far it's not winning. Yesterday (Saturday) morning I had a call from my GP's surgery calling me in for a visit because my blood test results show a Vit B12 deficiency. I have an appointment to see the GP Monday afternoon.
In the meantime my mind has jumped from low Vit B12 levels to pernicious anaemia to possible side effect of the methotrexate I take for my Rheumatoid Arthritis to having to stop taking the MTX to returning to the incapacty I had before I went onto the MTX. I have such vivid memories of the pain and restricted activity I suffered before MTX. I wasn't able to dress myself. I couldn't do up my own seatbelt in the car. I remember at the time I was stitching L&L's Angel of Love, and at times I would be sitting a my work for an hour or more and get maybe 10 beads stitched, and 100 beads on the floor, and be in tears of frustration and pain. I don't want to return to that.
I know I'm being irrational - and ridiculous. It's probably something as simple as needing to eat more Vegemite.
The moral of this story is: Don't get blood tests on Friday. DO it early in the week so if the GP calls you back you can get an appointment that day, and not stew about it over the weekend!
