Greg suspects that you have scurvy now that you live in Canada and consume only maple syrup!
Sounds rough. I'm sorry :( Hope the iron does the trick and you feel better soon!
Yeah, perhaps I should eat more vitamin C. I eat a decent amount of fruits and veggies - this week had bananas, bell pepper, tomatoes, asparagus, and berries, e.g., but maybe I'm overlooking some vital nutrient. Dunno.
