It seems I've been suffering with this phobia for some time now. And it has actually started to affect my daily life. I guess it's time to do something about it.

But what?

Well, for one, I could just get over it. I could seek therapy, or group counseling, but I doubt that will help.

I could make friends with some vegetarians, but then I would feel like they were being all judgy and whatnot because of my choices.

I could take a vitamin, but I can't swallow those giant horse pills.

So what's a girl with fear of vegetables to do?

I bought myself some liquid multivitamin drink stuff from Sam's Club.

Honestly, I don't usually have a problem eating my veggies. It mostly fruit. I can't remember the last time I ate fruit. It seriously scares me. But lately my restless legs have gotten so bad, that even my medicine isn't touching it, which makes me a very nice person to live with, if you can imagine that.

So after some research, Sean found that low levels of iron and folic acid are sometimes a culprit in restless legs syndrome, and also the lack of fruits and vegetables in the diet. I'm desperate, so I'll try anything. I bought myself some V8 Fusion, you know, the yummy fruity drink that has a full serving of veggies in it too. I really like it! And it makes my poop pretty. I know you wanted to know that.

I'm hoping with the drink, combined with the multivitamin drink, combined with the iron supplement I'll be taking, things will have settled down ( I crack me up). Wish me luck.

You need to take a straight iron pill in the morning and a pre natal type vitamin at night. No kidding. We menstratting women need iron! Bad! I am a flat out mess if I don't get mine. I take an iron pill called Slow Fe that is gental on my system. Oh, and don't donate blood. Not a great job for younger women, in my opinion. And make sure you get enough protien. Just my two cents. Good luck

You'll have to do an update post about how this all works out. My legs are crazy at night too(only when I'm pregnant though...weird) and it drives me CRAZY. If your little regimen works maybe I'll copy it. Good luck with all of that!
