I’ve been low in B-12 this past week (I have B-12 injections every month or two because I have Pernicious Anaemia), so today I got jabbed with a syringe full of the red liquid that they like to call Hydroxocobalamin but I always refer to as the injectable version of the red pill, by the confused looks on the doctors and nurses faces I take it they are not Matrix fans. I also got jabbed with the annual Influenza vaccine (I had Influenza a few years back and I’ve been given the vaccine ever since.)
After being jabbed I was sitting outside of the shopping centre while my mother was inside buying food for dinner, as I sat there I started to feel dizzy (due to the heat and low B-12) and I noticed people were giving me concerned looks as they passed me, I put my head between my knee’s to stop the world from spinning. After a minute or two a middle aged lady stopped and asked me if I was ok, I managed a smile and say “I’m fine thanks, just the heat getting to me”, she said “ok, just wanted to check, you don’t look too well”, and then she smiled and went on her way.
It’s nice to know people care.
