Do you have a hard time with direction? Like knowing where you are going? And to those who are not anemic do you have a hard time with direction?

No.  I used to have horrible directional skills but so does most of my family.  I'm anemic because I'm a vegetarian and I don't make up the iron in other ways.  I'm a very picky eater.

Anemic means low iron..... Is that known to affection directional sense somehow?

No...I've always had a horrible time giving people directions unless I'm with them, but I can get where I want to go.

 Yeah that is what I thought too!!! Seriously! My Friend and I were talking a while ago and I got lost driving right? So he asked if I was anemic and I said yeah how do you know? He said he thinks  maybe low iron means you lose your inner compass because it is not picking up the magnetic field. It just got me thinking could that be true? That would be crazy!!

Very interesting. It's crazy how our bodies operate and something being different can throw something else off. I never would have thought of that.

 Seriously!! I want to figure out how to test that theory. But so far a lot of people who are anemic are posting yes. I should do a poll.
