Day 327
Theme Small Things

I’ve been a vegetarian for almos 20 years, so in order to do my civic duty (donate blood) I take iron tablets on a semi regular basis to keep my iron levels at a decent level. There is no truty that being vego automatically gives you low iron levels and vv (my darling sister eats red meat and she is off the charts LOW on iron) but it does mean you have to be good with what you eat, and I must confess to not being very good all the time, so these little red pills are just enough to keep me on track.

Welcome to the world of Hege Nolan. I’m fascinated by the world and everything it contains. There is a focus on food and still lifes here, which sometime surprises me given my past history of portraits! (well, food doesn’t move or pull silly faces)

    Well done you on all fronts. I have been a veg too for over 22 years. I have no idea what my iron levels are though as I have an itense needle phobia which prevents me from donating.
    Great DOF in this Hege. Nice work girl.

  • thanks, like most things, it’s now a habit. of course having to explain the many reasons (great or small) behind my status, that gets annoying.
    for the record, giving blod doesn’t hurt, the needles aren’t so bad (especially if you don’t look as it’s going in) and it’s a free mini health check 4 times a year (never a bad thing!)

    lol… it’s not the pain factor as I have had a few shots in my time. Just the idea of my skin being punctured is what gets me. As an idea of the level… I have had teeth removed without the injection as I would rather take the pain than face the jag. The last time I had to get one in hospital they had to get 4 people to hold me down lol… It was pretty bad. Have a good weekend Hege. x
