So my body is doing some silly things, but the most worrisome right now are the blood pressure follies. I was in the ER the other night because if a person's BP is 207/107 they advise that a person should get a person's butt down to the ER. So I did.

Given that since March 20 I have been walking an average of just under five miles per day, this high blood pressure foolishness is troubling. Yes, I have a good doc. Yes, I saw her this morning, and I am under care and being given what we hope are useful meds. If I look tired at 4th Street or CONvergence, be kind to me, eh? High BP makes me tired and short of breath, and the meds for it can make me dizzy and other things.

Also, I admit that I am spooked, because this is very like what my BP was doing before I had the stroke a little over four years ago. Let's not do that again, OK?

So. Now you guys know.

Silly body indeed!

And yes, I understand the spooked. You are not allowed to have another stroke. The Boy has spoken. ;-)

Thoughts and prayers and good wishes and centering energy and calmness winging their way to you.

Lots of hugs, too.

Will definitely think good thoughts in your specific direction. Virtual *hugs* for now. Will be at 4th Street later today; hope to see you there to offer physical ones.

Oy. "Body my house / my horse my hound" indeed. I hope your silly body has help soon to ease its circulation congestion, and that you are not beset by lots of outside pressures while this is getting sorted out.

I weigh my ears with your stories in stone most days, and those stories spark other stories in me and with people I meet. I know there's no guarantee that some balancing of karma will ensure you receive in bodily aid some fraction in return for the aids to narrative more joyous and more real you send out, but— I hope you know and are reminded of how much the love you put into things ripples out. I hope you are reminded of how many people, myself included, are out here listening and cheering for you.
