My checkup didn’t go well last night. My blood pressure is out the roof. I was forced to take some drastic measures. I have too much blood pressure, too much weight and too many medications. There really are only three steps that I have to take.
3. Quit taking everything.
The first two are bad enough but the third is what is killing me right now. When he said everything, he meant everything. That included my allergy medication and my coffee. I have to give my body several days to clean out and then I can slowly add things back in if they are something that I can’t live without. I know I can expect a caffeine-withdrawal headache in a few hours but so far so good. The doctor told me to take fish oil tablets. According to him, they may help with the allergies. I have been taking allergy medication for over thirty years now so I was expecting to wake up stuffed and congested.
I hate to say it but I actually feel pretty good right now. If I only had my coffee I could wake up but I know I can’t. I didn’t put much stock in the fish oil thing but like I said, I do feel pretty good right now. In fact, I feel better than I have all week. I will keep you posted on my progress in the next few days and let you know how my blood pressure reacts to these new changes. I only have until next week to start showing some improvment. If not, then I am on the BP meds which I really don't want to start taking.
My daughter had to spend another night in the hospital but is supposed to come home today. I think that was best anyway with three young kids at home. She wouldn’t have gotten any rest at all. Thanks again for all the well wishes and prayers.
It’s Friday, yea!!! And I don’t have to work this weekend. I plan on resting and doing some work in my gardens. I have a few chores to get done but not too many. I really just need to relax. I may just sleep all weekend since I can't have any coffee. Maybe I will get some fishing in as well. So many possibilities, so little time. I will have to get some exercise in so "look out road." Time to start jogging again. I will be taking some pictures too so get ready for that.
And speaking of Freaky Friday.....
Did everyone see where the "guy" is pregnant? He/she/it is actually a transvestite so technically it is just a freaky woman having a baby. Great idea guys, Bring up a child in an already confusing world and throw that at her. It is going to be a baby girl by the way. The proud father said she will be his little princess. Maybe she will say the same about her father once/if she grows up. I swear if they start talking breasts feeding I am going to vomit. What is this world coming to?
Have a great weekend
