Evicting the Sloth

In a very gradual, cunning, nearly undetectable manner a sloth managed to inhabit my body.
I felt lethargic and totally unmotivated. I was tired but not sleeping well. I was hungry but eating empty calories. I was bored but not doing anything. Mentally I was unhappy and found fault with everyone and everything. I wondered fleetingly if I was lingering on the edge of depression.

Then I decided that I had to get out of this slump. Enough was enough. The sloth hadn't been around that long but he still needed to go.
I suspected that the main reason this sloth was able to take up residence was that my iron levels were low. I've had that problem before so I began taking iron supplements.

It's only been a little over a week and I'm starting to feel a million times better. The sloth has been kicked out and I feel like myself again. I have energy, I've been running, I actually want to eat healthier, I'm better able to objectively study some challenges in my life and deal with them, I've been sleeping well, and overall I feel happier.

No sloths allowed!
