So I've been to see all kinds of doctors to figure out why I'm so tired. One of them helped a lot, but there was still some lingering daily fatigue, and so far they've only proved capable of taking my money. They've suggested all kinds of things--$400 Indian herbs...10 hours of sleep each night (or possibly at work)...a magical video game that takes all my pain away (thanks for nothing, biofeedback)...
And none of it worked--or is possible (sleep 10 hours a night????). And I had resigned myself to sleepiness.
But then, BOOBERRY and FRANKENBERRY season arrived. The best season of the year. (All you Peeps people suck. Yes, Mom--even you.)
And Dr. Frankenberry gave me some useful advice. IRON! he says. Iron is the key to combatting fatigue:
"Pump some IRON! Iron plays a key role in your health, carrying oxygen from the lungs to other parts of the body. Without a enough iron, you can feel worn out. Look for cereals with iron to help you get enough tof this important nutrient."
I also consulted Dr. Booberry for a second opinion, and he completely concurred with Dr. Frankenberry.
Booberry and Frankenberry have 25% of my iron rda. Go Booberry and Frankenberry! Now I just need four bowls a day.
I can do that.
Thank you, sugar cereal. Thank you for giving me a straight, simple, and possibly correct answer.
(Incidentally, I don't believe Count Chocula is a medical doctor, so I've excluded him from my advice pool.)
