Taking a blood sampleAs some of my readers know, I’d been unwell last year, and was struggling to keep on top of things because of it.  I want to share this with all my women readers in case it might help anyone with the same problem, as I’d apparently been struggling with a health problem for two years and had no idea anything was wrong, other than I was just always tired.

I went to see my doctor complaining of aching pains in my arms and legs.  She ordered a blood test which revealed that my iron was very low.  It seems I had so little iron stored in my liver that it was being leached from my bone marrow, which was causing the funny little pains. 

The gastroenterologist I was referred to said that although my diet was good, and I had taken an iron supplement for a while after the twins were born, it had been insufficient to deal with the demands on my body of two pregnancies close together and breastfeeding three babies in that short time.

Prior to seeing my doctor, I had been experiencing tiredness and lethargy for a long time, so long that I was not aware of any difference between how I was feeling with my youngest children being 2 years old and how I had felt when I was still feeding them during the night and recovering from the birth.

My assumption, as usual, was that I was lazy.  If only someone had issued me with a medical certificate (to be presented by me to myself, being my own boss) stating that leniency should be shown if I fell behind with the housework and seemed to want to rest a lot.

The solution was either to stick it out taking an iron supplement, an option the specialist thought would be inadequate and very slow, or have an iron infusion.

Although I have private health insurance, the infusion was only a day procedure in hospital, therefore there was nothing to claim.  The options were to wait 3 or 4 months to go through the public system, or pay a few hundred dollars and have it done immediately in the local private hospital.  Being pretty broke at the time, I accepted Mum's offer to pay for it, and went in.

All I had to do was sit/lye there for the day with a drip in my arm full of rust coloured fluid.  It started to kick in within about a week, and I feel better than I have for a long time.  My immune system is working again now – I started to get a cold on Friday, and I can feel it disappearing already.

The woman next to me having the same thing had been diagnosed with celiac disease, something about wheat intolerance.  This had been ruled out for me, but I don't remember what the test was.

The effect is not dramatic or immediate, not a sudden burst of energy, however I soon felt noticeably better and able to get on with things less slowly.  My attention span improved too, and I felt less depressed.

So, if you’re tired, have mysterious aches and pains, and just really struggling to stay on top of things, see your doctor in case there is a medical reason for it.  It might not be related to motivation at all.

Anshula Ohri, Toronto,

"Before I met Yvette I had many opportunities in front of me but I was feeling overwhelmed and I had no confidence in making the decisions.  I was feeling stuck and confusedd.  My career has progressed in a positive direction and I am now functioning better in physical and emotional health.  Thank you Yvette for your help.  This was one of the best decisions I have ever made."

"The coaching with Yvette was very beneficial. In just a few weeks I had achieved so much. I am so thankful. I found Yvette to be very patient, professional and reassuring. I would definately recommend NLP now that I have seen the difference it has made to my life. I have left the past in the past and I am happier within myself."

"Your belief in me gave me the confidence to work out ways of improvement, knowing how important it is that these answers be found by me within me to enable them to be so powerful and successful. I loved the CD you sent as your voice is so easy to listen to and reassuring as it imparts great words of wisdom and strengthens the concepts taught within your life coaching sessions. These life skills are amazing!"

Lynne from Lowood,

"I consider myself very fortunate having chosen Yvette for coaching.  It has turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. I started from a place where I was stuck in procrastination and everything seemed so overwhelming that I didn't really know where to start.  I love the freedom and empowerment I now feel.  Yvette's methods are personalised and very effective.  I have looked forward to every coaching sesssion."

Melbourne, Australia

"Yvette is a great coach who inspires you to overcome the obstacles that she finds in working with you.  She is highly motivated and has worked hard to increase her knowledge in many areas that in turn help her clients.  Yvette draws on her own real life experience adn studies to help those of us who have to juggle many responsibilities and mangage the conflicts in thinking that come from that.  I am looking forward to working with Yvette again in the near future"

Liz Jarvis, CSI Business Solutions, 
NSW, Australia

"Through my coaching experience with Yvette I was able to shift my awareness onto my value system as opposed to staring at my circumstances each day and feeling pulled in a hole.  It's powerful because I want meaning, I want to live up to my values and what's right and good for me!  So, I truly learned the value of letting go and receiving the abundance of knowledge for every situation that gives life, love and meaning to who I am and what I can do, with this fearless self awareness."

New York, USA

"Yvette.  Many thanks for a wonderful experience... Our sessions were productive, really interesting adn I so looked forward to them each week with anticipation of what I can learn about myself and my behaviours.  Every session seemed to flow right on topic of what was present in my relaity at the time and your effortless guiding of my strategies never ceased to amaze me.  I highly recommend you as a life coach and thank you again for the experience."

M Shears, 
Melbourne, Australia

"I really questioned my future career ambitions and thanks to Yvette I changed direction from something I felt I had to do, to something I know I will love to do.  I was stuck on this topic for quite some time and Yvette really helped me shed light on this.  I changed the MBA I signed up for and feel excited about my careeer and all the opportunities in the future."
