Why the chocolate didn't melt....

Thursday, September 13, 2012

So I asked myself (2 nights ago) just before I fell asleep whle eating a chocolate Dove bar, why isn't the chocolate melting?

Well, I figured out my mouth was cold from eating a frozen banana....

Also, when I went to sleep I had eaten only 2 squares, but when I woke up hours later the whole candy bar was gone...so apparently I was "sleep eating." However, I think it all ended up in my hair and on my nightgown.

Oh, sweet mysteries of lfe!

    well, that is one thing, I don't think I ever did, eat in bed, do you go to bed to read? or watch tv, and then the eating, I have chewed gum in bed and it landed in my hair, but never chocolate, but never say never right? emoticon

    Should I say "what a waste of good chocolate" or "better
outside than inside"? LOL!

    Thanks for sharing that. It's good to know that I'm not the only one who falls asleep eating something.

Death by Chocolate?

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

I fell asleep while eating a small chocolate Dove candy bar. I remember saying to myself, "I wonder why it isn't melting?

The next thing, it was midnight and I woke up with chocolate all over my nightgown and even in my hair. Good thing I didn't choke on it.

The moral of the story: Don't eat in bed!!!

    I have only done it with gum, and I did not learn the first time, it took me several times to figure out, that when I fall asleep, my mouth falls open, hence gum falls out, and usually ends up in my hair, but I did learn, I do not do that any more, in fact I do not chew gum. maybe, that is why I learned my lesson. emoticon

Chronic headache? It's there again...

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

I was able to sleep a good 8 hours last night (the night before slept only 2 hours) but woke up with a pretty bad headache. My coffee hasn't kicked in yet and so by the time I get to work it might be gone.

Gotta run and take all my meds and don't be late for work like yesterday.

Have a wonderful day!!! emoticon

    Hi Teddy,

I've been up in Maine since dad was in the hospital and was not on spark. Hope that headache went away. I find that sometimes coffee is the best thing for me also.

hugs...Mary Anne

Blood pressure, headaches, etc.

Monday, September 03, 2012

I am still having occasional chest discomfort. In the hospital, NTG (nitroglycerine) helped relieve it, but they did not send any home with me.

The headaches are pretty much all the time and I think are related to sinus congestion (pollen allergies) and TMJ as the pain seems to be pretty well over the head and sometimes centered on temples. I have also gotten headaches from neck spasms and my neck has been more sore lately with occasional spasms.

My admitting doctor on Thursday questioned what I was taking the Tegretol XR for and I told her it was for trigeminal neuralgia. That's another cause of jaw and temple pain.

Anyhow, I did feel well enough to exercise Friday and Saturay. Am going to the gym today and plan to swim in addition to doing 10 minutes on the stationary bike and 10 minutes on the treadmill.

Am going to make an appointment with my internist this week for follow-up after short hospital stay. Hopefully, she will be able to sort out things and make some suggestions (in addition to losing weight and adhering to low sodium diet).

    Sorry to hear how you are feeling - it is tough when we are not at our best. I was in terrible pain for about 18 months before the docs were able to diagnoze it - was given 3 bouts of very strong meds to clean up the infection and was told I needed to see a surgeon to have the problem surgically fixed. The thought of it made me sick so I prayed about it - after the 3rd meds were complete I had to wait for 15 days to see the surgeon - low and behold the infections did not come back, he agreed with me that I was not a canditate for surgery due to the radiation I had 10 years ago but looked at the problem and announced that I was healed. Have not had that pain for over a month and am so grateful

Have faith, you will get through this and with the changes you make in your eating and exercising will help a lot to improving your situation

High blood pressure...ER visit..etc

Saturday, September 01, 2012

Went to podiatrist and before he saw me the nurse took my blood pressure twice...first 180/122 and then 169/105. Was told to go to ER where after six hours of mostly waiting was sent to telemetry unit and stayed overnight. Next morning had chemical stress test. 5 hours later was given results (negative) and was allow to eat something.

I was given diuretic (HCTZ) and told to see my internist in about a week.

I was advised to eat a "heart healthy diet" (cardiac diet) and hav e low sodium and high potassium intake.

I feel fine (though hypertension often does not have any symptoms) but this morning I got another high reading of 163/100 (after arguing with husband about which blood pressure machine to use)....

I am not sure if that was an accurate reading and might go to the Walgreen's store to get a recheck.

So the bottom line is that I have high blood pressure (which I only had during pregnancy in 1973) and am wondering what all they are going to advise me to do about it.

The hospitalist (admitting dr who I have never seen before) said I needed to lose weight and exercise more and take a second diuretic prescription.

I hope that helps but will be more reassured after my internist runs a few more blood tests on me to check out a few other possibilities.

With the two additional medications they gave me I think my medication list is up to about 15 prescriptions, not counting the over-the-counter medicines I take.

Should make the drug dealers (pharmacists) happy! emoticon

    I personally find that any caffeine I indulge in ups my bp also. I have had to learn to reduce it as I can. If I have been caffeine free for awhile, then a day or two on it, I particularly notice the difference. I didn't know before a small amount would do it to me; but it raises my diastolic (bottom) number up to 100, even on Meds. Good luck with your bp. Keep on it.

    High Blood Pressure is very serious, but I know about the different medicines,
honest after I joined sparks and a gym and started walking and lost 15 pounds, but I have gained 10 of them back, I only take 1 blood pressure, and medicine for my stomach, I got rid of 3 other kinds, so I know that exercise is really important, my blood pressure is higher than it was for awhile, but still under control with my medication, take care of yourself

    High blood pressure is deadly! Women used to die of heart attacks all the time in their 60s. With modern medication that is no longer the death sentence it used to be, but you have to take it seriously. Hypertension kills. Please get to the doctor! Medication can save your life!
