After reading this article I realized that my mother is to blame for my health woes. I know the article tries to downplay that coldness does not cause future problems, but how many times can you be told to “buck up buttercup” without future repercussions. This explanation for MS seems much more plausible than iron issues. I guess Eriksgirl will have to quit saying “dry it up nancy!” to the kids, and preferably to me too. On a plus side it did not mention dads so I can continue with my walk-it-off protocol.
