I Don't WANT More Energy

I was out of B-12 and looking for a replacement.  I could find B-12, but the little bottles kept saying it was for increased energy.  I remember having energy.  It was nice.  I haven't done things because I have lots of energy in decades.
I do things because they are on my list.  I do what is on my list and my feet hurt...all the way up to my knees.  If I did any more, I don't know how bad I would feel.  I am pretty sure there is a better way to feel energetic than just feeling antsy.
Larry kept saying, "It's B-12.  Get it."
I kept muttering, "I don't want more energy.  I want the one that says it is for the nervous system."  I have electrical shock feelings in my fingers and feet.  I think it is because I have pinched nerves.
I'm going to make an appointment with a podiatrist tomorrow. B-12 hasn't made a significant difference unless I would be worse if I hadn't been taking it.  I honestly can't tell one bit of difference when I take supplements except I have less money.
Supplements are like wrinkle cream.  I use cream to get rid of my wrinkles and I still have wrinkles.  Of course, I might look like one of those dried-apple dolls if I didn't use it.  I'm afraid to try doing without it.


  1. When I don't get enough B-12 I don't process calcium and it makes little gravely feeling specks in my pores. I take a monthly vitamin B shot which I give myself an which is not even remotely painful because it is a tiny little needle. Anyway...then I don't get the little sand in my pores. Maybe I have more energy...hard to tell. I have enough energy for the stuff I do everyday because I haven't fallen asleep before I have gone to bed so I suppose I am OK.

  2. I haven't noticed you lacking energy. You even sit still actively!
