Still have a giant red bruise on my elbow, and I also have various small bright red bruises on one of my knees. The bruises are definitely disproportionate to the small amount that my knees and elbows got banged around during dance class, and it occurs to me that I bruise awfully easily lately. This likely means some sort of nutritional deficiency, so maybe I should see my doctor so she can order bloodwork for me. I should get bloodwork done at least twice a year anyway, because of my meds.
Of course, I assume that after I wait weeks to see my doctor and then wait a bit longer to be able to get blood tests, whatever nutritional deficiency has been making me bruise easily will already have corrected itself, and my bloodwork will be perfect, just as it was last time.
Weighed myself and I have only lost a pound in the past six weeks, which means my metabolism must have slowed way down because most people would be losing on what I’m eating. Since I am not willing to eat any less than this right now, I’ll have to start eating more. Maybe once I eat more I’ll remember that life is better than starving and I’ll be able to stick with a sustained recovery effort, or maybe I’ll freak out about the prospect of weight gain and restrict again after I’ve eaten normally for a while, but anyway, eating more food is definitely in my immediate future.
