Right now I am fighting to stay alert. I took my meds and sure enough my blood pressure crashed. It is so low, it won't even register on my BP machine. I was going to call 911, but slowly I can feel it coming back up. I wish I knew what I could do when this happens. Fortunately Spike was here with me and stayed until I felt a little better.
I have mentioned this problem to my doctor. So whoopee! He lowered my BP med by a half of pill. I have more or less changed my diet and am not eating all those foods with a lot of fat. It wasn't a deliberate change. I just prefer veggie salad to fatty meats. And I am eating less that I used to. And the weight is coming off about two pounds a month.
I am going to stop taking my BP meds and not even tell the doctor. I can't keep doing this. My instructions were to check my BP before I take my meds. If my pressure is low, don't take the BP meds. Well, I did check my BP before I took my meds and it was 120/60. That is a very good BP.
Okay. I am feeling better and time to read some of the postings. I need to get some water in me and eat.
Illegitimi non carborundum!
I don't want my last words to be, "I wish I had spent more time doing housework"
