    If you use the iron level excuse, it might also help you avoid a difficult situation on saturday nite when you dont drink. Could say it is doctors orders to get your diet balanced.

    .... I hate it when my dr says that

    Could you get away with saying something like you're having some investigations done and it's private? That would only fly if your workmates aren't the kind of people you tell personal stuff to!

    Say thyroid check. Then you could say you won't drink because of your new medication

    Go with low iron, anaemia also has being tired as a symptom which will explain all the yawning you're going to be doing soon!

    And if anyone gives you any hassle about pregnancy/conceiving, you could give the hint that you might be having ttc issues. I know that's nothing to joke about, but I bet it'll stop them hassling you!

    Thanks everyone - I ended up washing and drying a three quarter length top last night in preparation for today! I bruise like a mo-fo though so will use the low iron excuse on the weekend if I need to.

    Thanks again!

    I use to suffer from migraines. So when I had a blood test which was negative. I said it was investigating possible cause. It also helped when came to having have another test two weeks later. As it was investigation had to do follow up bloods. And yes doctors order while testing is to limit alcohol so as not to effect blood results.

    I would not say what it was for! Just sat you need time off for a procedure (you will need a medical cert) and if they ask what for just say oh, nothing serious or something along those lines. Or "I'd rather not say" which will shut them up! Problem is if the medical cert makes it obvious... You are not obliged to tell them what you need the time for. If you do trust your boss though it might make it easier for you in the long run...
