Bloody anemic

I'm trying not to start every post with "I love," and I suppose I've succeeded at that with just this prelude, so it's safe now to say: I love when authors utilize the word "anemic," often spelled with an extra o or a thrown in for a nice British touch, to describe something as uninteresting or uninspiring. Except that today I learned that I am anemic - not in the authorial 'uninspired' way, but in the medical 'not enough of blood' way. This explains my extreme fatigue, exercise intolerance and mental fogginess of late, but what remains unexplained is how this developed, since the only blood loss I've sustained of late was getting my blood drawn for these tests and a few paper cuts.
