I know what you mean Andy. With 17 gkids, I am constantly getting notices that so and so is "graduating" to the next grade and there will be a party. I refuse to attend any of them until they graduate from the 12th grade and then college. Going on to the next grade is what they are supposed to do. I refuse to give them a present or attend a party for them. Making the honor roll for the whole year is something to celebrate. Unfortunately for me, we have a number of kids that do that every year. I would be broke if I gave a present to every one of them.

What ever happened to giving a watch for graduation?

Your diploma was supposed to allow you to find a job so you could buy your own watch.

Yup. That happened. Actually I've bought several over the years. I'm currently wearing a Seiko I bought over 30 years ago.

In other words...Orthostatic Hypotension...your blood pressure drops when you stand quickly. Love you Babe, take it easy! And yes, no breaking anything and stay hydrated in the heat!

You know PF, I went on Ranexa, a fairly new drug for angina. Everytime I laid down, I would get so dizzy, that I would almost pass out. I hesitated to mention it to my doctor for fear he would think I was going mad. So he looked it up. It is one of the side effects of the drug. Instead of getting dizzy when I stand, it was just the opposite. But I still take my time standing up. So I am danged if I do and danged if I don't. I get dizzy no matter what I do. Let's face it. I am just an old dizzy broad.

That one lead me on a merry chase! I looked up Ranexa and got sidetracked into looking at statins for lowering cholesterol.

Any medication changes should be a first clue when having odd effects and should always be mentioned to your doctor...(if they think you are crazy you get a new med) Seriously, some side effects can start out as merely bothersome but become serious if ignored.

And I think all of us become dizzy old broads...
