Take THAT, medical anxiety! :P

I did it! I passed! Hot Diggity Daffodil! (Yeah, do the Bender! Everybody do the Bender! *robot dance*)
Today was the day, returning to the doc's to see if my BP was off due to meds or nerves... The last three weeks have seen an average of 123/67, and made sure to take my BP an hour before my visit (126/69), and there I went, armed with this knowledge and a book I've read a million times before... and tada! I passed!
I joked with Jonathan that I should take him with me so that I could hug up on him while they do my pressure because he's a very calming influence. "Waaaaaait! I need my huggie thing!" *lol* So, when it came to the moment of truth, I sat up very straight, closed my eyes, took a deep breath, and thought about him giving me a shoulder rub. Hoo boy, dropped my blood pressure to zen-like levels. *lol* Seriously, it's what I think about when I can't fall asleep; I imagine a good, deep shoulder/neck/upper back rub and it relaxes me right out.
I've never actually had a full body massage, but I'm pretty sure I'd fall asleep on the table if I did. ^_^
Jonathan was amused when I told him of my visualization. "Yeah, I know how you get. You're like a big ol' cat sometimes."
So yay, I can continue on my meds, no more worries. :)
Now to beat this congestion so I can get back outside on my walkies routine.
