B12 and Boys

Boy or Girl

The last doctor I saw thought that my cluster of symptoms might be due to a B12 deficiency. The easiest way to find out if you are deficient is to take some. If you are low, you should feel more energetic. If you’re not, you’ll just pee out the excess.

I picked up a bottle of B12 at the store and took some for several days. Each day brought with it unpleasant stomach cramps but no extra energy. I looked up B12 side effects. Reported incidents were relatively low. For women the most common complaint was shortness of breath. Stomach ailments, however, were almost exclusively listed by men.

This got me thinking about the game of Boy or Girl that Toby and I play where he adamantly insists that I am a boy. Before I was kidding about him knowing something I don’t, but now I’m less and less sure…

You should listen to me more. I know what I’m barking about.


Dream Our World

Come on an adventure with Bitey and Toby to the Museum of the Imagination in Dream Our World! Inside the boys view the world of art from a canine perspective and enjoy a day of unsupervised fun.

Dream Our World and other fine gifts are available at my shop at L Bowman Studios.



  1. I have to take B complex because otherwise I start doing weird things like passing out for no apparent reason. That’s kinda fun when it scares the crap out of people but it also makes me feel like throwing up all over them so there’s that. Also, Toby is right about many things but if you start using pronouns, I’m done.

  2. “WE should ALL listen to Toby more!” – Cooper 😉
    I’ve never taken B12…but I’ve been told to take Potassium and VitD.
    I’ve read that salmon and eggs are good sources of B12.
