    Default Not doing good....

    Iron poisoning now and low potassium. No energy, can't hold down liquids or food. Will be okay but miserable right now. So if you pray, please do so for me. Thank you

    Sending All Good Thoughts and Prayers for healing.

    Low potassium is scary (been there). I’ve had to take the liquid form. What worked for me (when I couldn’t hold down food or drink) was to mix liquid potassium with crystal light and freeze it into small ice cubes.

    I hope you’re feeling better soon!

    I went to the ER Wednesday night but they sent me home. I feel absolutely horrible. Nothing I do makes me feel better. I haven't even had the energy to speak or touch my phone. It comes in very small spurts.

    That is good to hear Michelle.
    English is not my first language anymore, so I may and do make mistakes in my spelling, or say things oddly. Please ask me, if you want any clarifications.

    Thank y'all! That was honestly the worst I've ever felt. I found out that you can die from iron poisoning and they should have kept me overnight for observation but they didn't.
