If I should ever get hired at a job, should I tell the employee that I am anemic?
The last job I had, I was fired under false statements made by the manager and because the boss said I was too "slow" at what I was doing. I do know that I was kind of slow when I was pushing around the shopping carts outside, but I'm anemic and it was the week before my period. I usually suffer from extreme cases of fatigue (more so than usual) a week before my period. I can go home and sleep for 12-14 hours straight. I feel weak, irritated, and just tired. And I had to push around carts for an hour so I got really tired after 15 minutes. And for reference, my hands to feet are always freezing cold, my skin is pale, I have dark circles that come and go, I breathe heavily, and once in a blue moon and I move too fast, I black out for 2 seconds. Le, people like you piss me off. I wasn't asking "Do I have anemia?!" I was asking whether I shoulder tell a job. GTFO with that kind of retarded advice.

If you're feeling so bad, why not go to the doctor and get some blood work done? I get a vitamin B12 shot once a week and take iron pills to keep myself well.

It sounds like you might have iron deficency anemia. Go see a doctor to see if this is right. If it is, there is a simple "cure". Take iron supplements. Women often don't eat enough foods to get the daily amount of iron needed so they can take multivitamins with iron. Foods like brocolli, green leafy vegies, milk,... More

legaly it's not thier problem and it is illega for them to fire u based on that, but I tell my bosses about my disability all the time, thy are more understanding that way, or if they don't hire u, it might be for the better good, but see a doctor, and tak to him about it.

I think you should see a dr first - the extent of your pre menstrual symptoms are too extreme to be "normal" . I would tell your next boss that you have a medical condition that can flare up at times and you will tell him /her when this is occuring . But if you go to a decent dr you may get better !!
