Alas. Guess I did not abuse red meat enough this menstrual cycle. Or maybe scheduling it for the day after my cycle stopped was a bad idea? Naah.
Or possibly I drank too much tea.
I know. "Too much tea." You wouldn't think it possible. But it does limit iron absorption.
RX: eat some damned cow, red wine, and spinach and go back in a couple of days. Oh, it's so hard being me.
Also, thank you to the entire internets for the birthday wishes. You guys are amazing.
