Pumping Iron



I'm just wrapping up week three of my Repliva regimen. A word of warning to anyone interested in the prescription iron supplement: The pills are HUGE! The Web site, I think, makes the pills appear to be the size of birth control pills when in reality, they are the size of prenatal vitamins.

I wish I could say I feel differently now than before I started Repliva, but I don't. It still takes me 30 to 45 minutes to get out of bed in the morning. I still feel as if I'm walking underwater as I go about my day. Every little thing feels like it requires great effort. To say I'm dragging is a bit of an understatement.

Regardless, I'm still confident the Repliva will work in time, and I have yet to miss a dose.
