GRRR Nurse Called

Wednesday, June 16, 2021

The clinic called me this afternoon and now I have to go pick up new meds yet too. They kind of scare me. Of course there are 30 more water pills but they decided to double my BP meds because it's always so high when I'm at the doctor. It is making me nervous to do that while I'm driving.

In the morning I'll go do the shopping and pick up those meds. I'll take my BP and watch it the next 2 days because when I'm at home it's fine. Those doctors just have me on edge. In some ways I wonder if I shouldn't stay home and get this little medical problem solved before I drive off. But I am still going on my vacation.

Didn't get as far as I wanted to today but will settle on what gets done gets done and leave it at that.

thank fulls
1. sleeping pills (like a switch to turn of the worry)
2. the dog snoring at my feet he's been tired all day
3. the kitchen is really looking good

Trip to the clinic to pick up drugs then Walmart for a couple of essentials. Just looked at my list there is one thing on there twice. Then come home and do more picking up of things I should put away and leave laying around. I sometimes think of it as a bad habit but sometimes away means I'll never find it again.

    Yes I do believe there are people who's Blood Pressure rises at the clinic, here is another one on the list. I took my blood pressure pill and the rest of my morning pills. Then get to the clinic and wait, wait, by the time they got me into a room and did mt vitals, yup blood pressure was up. I never is high after taking the morning pill, and wait an hour. However when you get to the clinic by 8:45 and you don't get to see the PA until after 10:15 by golly the has risen. That seem to be the norm around here at clinics. I just don't plan anything much since I know I am going to wait. So have to back and see her in two months, since having some problem at present.
    It was warm out right away this morning, beautiful blue sky while going to the clinic. By the time I got out of the clinic it was already clouding up quite a bit, but didn't rain until we were on our way out for supper, and not that much, just long enough until we got into the restaurant .
    Hoping to go get some groceries tomorrow, just things we really need for now, then do bigger shopping next week.

    Can you wait until you get to your destination before you start taking the new medicine? I know for myself I would feel more comfortable starting a new medicine when I was around family. If there is a problem when you take the mess, they would know who to contact.

    My mom has the white coat syndrome. They take her BP a 2nd time as she is being discharged and it's closer to what she runs. You are close to your vacation. Hold on taking your new meds until you arrive and if a second part of trip you should know how you do with them.

    White coat hypertension possibly? Very common. However my doctor said when he upped my BP meds, it had consistently been on the higher side. I take a fluid pill, Lasix, and I can't get anything done while using it because I have to keep running to p
