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.
