hair, hair, everywhere, hair. (another anemia symptom)

so, in the past month I have noticed that my hair has become remarkably thin. Actually, I first noticed in January that my hair was kind of umm… flat.

health reflections

ok, in what I hope to be the last health update (at least for a very long time!), I have passed all of my remaining tests for the bleeding ulcer. No more internal bleeding (at least it appears to have mended), my iron is low-normal (which for me, may be about normal). I still tire easily if/when I walk at higher altitudes or up a ...
