My doctor has made the decision to change my medications. The pharmacist sent me home with a several pages of information about the new medication. It appears to have a long list of possible side effects which cover everything short of turning into a cow. However, in some extreme cases turning into a cow is a distinct possibility.
Flu like symptoms are listed and since Saturday I have had a throbbing head and a sore throat. However, Petite Fille has a cold and so it is more likely that I have caught her virus. Am I having a side effect or sharing germs? Either way, time will tell I expect.
I have to take my own blood pressure first thing in the morning and last thing before bed. These times are suppose to be when I will be less stressed and anxious. Doctor obviously doesn’t know that the moment I wake my brain kicks into action and takes on a life of its own.
I am one of those people that having my blood pressure taken makes it rise. I have to take it at home, in the hope I will be less anxious about it. I think this would only work if I was unconscious.
The only time my blood pressure has been within normal range, even with medication, was during the three weeks I spend with Peppercorn. Days on end sitting on the couch being Peppercorn’s Nanny upon which she likes to nanny nap is great relaxation therapy. I wonder if I could claim air flights to Perth on my medical insurance? Perhaps under natural therapy?
