I did it. I posted on facebook last Friday about taking my vitamin B12 shot so it's been a few days:
Anyone who knows me is saying, "Man, Rhonda got a shot that is going to give her more energy.....watch out world." I have to admit, when I first did this I was worried about "bouncing" off the walls more that I already do. Let's face it, energy is not really what I lack.
I want to begin by telling you....I hate shots. I think I've said this before haven't I? This one, wasn't anything like I thought it would be. Hating shots I thought it would be terrible, but, honestly it isn't bad.
So, I get past the shot. Alright, waiting for the "bouncing off the walls" and really started to feel sorry for my husband. I have to say.....it feels "different." Yesterday I was asked how I felt after my first shot (okay I really need to start calling this an injection because it is nothing like the "shot" I am so used to). My response.....different.
My energy level is solid. I don't have "more" energy but I have a steady feeling of "feeling good." I don't feel like I need a nap at 2:00 PM.
Another thing, and again let's face it I am a crazy person and go and go and go....and normally I am needing to go to bed around 9:00 PM. Now, I will be up doing things and realize it's after 10 PM and I'm not "going to drop."
I sleep like a baby. I have never had problem sleeping, an earthquake couldn't wake me up. This sleep is different...when I wake I feel rested. The best way to describe it is I smooth through the night. I don't sleep "hard," I sleep well....and "well" really isn't a good word to describe it but it is a great nights' sleep.
It's been five days...going for my second round Friday. It's hard to describe but I feel a more "even" feeling throughout the day. I don't stop and say, I need a nap, I need a break or I'm done for the day.
I want to also add that I recently "fractured multiple ribs" and although the B12 doesn't help with the pain it sure has made the pain easier to live with.
Stay tuned for more on my journey!
