Expensive under the eye puffiness cream...what a joke!
I have bags under my eyes...yes, I'm 62 so they are to be expected but I could pack for a month cruise in my eye bags! We were in the mall, beloved and I, and I pointed out an expensive make-up store I thought might have a "cure". And the youn... Read more
Counting my blessings...
Still married to the love of my life; still have Mum...at almost 90 she's a lot of work but I know time will be short so I try to remember to cherish every moment; despite a very rocky October and November I'm getting my health back and am deter... Read more
Anybody else starving for points?
I'm living on 1's and 2's, even for team points. Surely someone gets a 25 once in a while?... Read more
Still getting dizzy!
Today I called a pharmacist and told him my recent history and the new meds I am on for high BP. He thinks I am still on meds too strong for what my body can handle and said I shouldn't have been started on THREE meds because now we have to fig... Read more
Nice day yesterday
We picked up Mum, went to church where I had the Children s Story. I was so dizzy I had to hang on to the pews! We had a nice lunch ready in the crock pot when we got home...chicken picatta from Sam's Club into which we added onions and mushroo... Read more
Hiking on the nature trail....COLD!
Winter is pushing in early. Yesterday was warm, high in the 70's, but last night the wind started blowing. This morning there is a hard frost on the ground and it's only 40 degrees. We are doing a nice hike, not too long, since I want to be able... Read more
Went to the neurologist....and my insurance was denied!
Got all the way there and the woman said they didn't take my insurance! It was all arranged by the doctor's office ahead of time...somebody goofed somewhere. Oh well, we start over because I'm trying to learn to let things go that I cannot con... Read more
Giving up my wine!
I really enjoy a nice glass of pinot grigio in the evening but now I'm giving it up. Not only is it a source of empty calories, but my girlfriend's husband is an alcoholic and to support her, I'm dropping it. Such a shame to see a marriage fail... Read more
Have to take Mum to the doctor!
I found a very large cancer on her right hand which she'd kept covered with a band-aid. Today we will take her to the dermatologist to have it removed.... Read more
This whole mess was from too much BP meds!
The cardiologist said it all was from too big a dose of BP meds! All the passing out, EMS trips to the hospital, dizziness, angiograms, and CT scans when nothing was wrong except my dose was too high. We are starting to return to normal in the... Read more
Feeling better! Happy, happy! Feeling better!
Came downstairs this morning all smiles, feeling completely like my old self again. So the meds are tweaked just yet, it's getting there. Back on the road to wellness, back to dance, back to happy feet! Thanking God for answering prayers!... Read more
Still no BP meds!
My blood pressure is still too low to take the lisinopril and HCTZ so again today it was just the beta blocker for my heart. At least I have some parameters now and will resume lisinopril when the systolic hits 150. "This will take weeks" the ... Read more
Whee! Feeling better!
No lisinopril with hctz again this morning. My BP was 103/69 when I got up so I only took the beta blocker. It's up to 126/84 which is great for my age. Praying these meds can get finely tuned so I may resume my very active, very healthy life... Read more
Fighting to keep BP up!
Had to call the cardiologist again this morning...my BP was 89/65! First, it was waay too high, 198/126. Then it dropped...now we are fighting to keep it up! Now I am to take only the beta-blocker, not the lisinopril ER. Still very dizzy!... Read more
Cant' anyone show up like they say they will???
I know it's trivial but we are going thru cleaning people like water. They either don't show, show up very late, or "call in sick." I know it is out of my control but I get so frustrated!... Read more
