Out of Touch

Friday, December 20, 2013

Hello to all my Spark Friends.

I have not been spending much time on line, just going to work then home and resting. On December 2nd I went to a clinic at a local pharmacy because I had a sinus or ear infection and could not get into my doctor. Because my BP was 184/122 she would not give me anything, wanted me to go to the ER. I thought I might have missed a few days of my meds, so I agreed to come back the next day.

I stayed home from work and in bed most of the day (thought that would help lower BP) until I had to go back. Nope, 205 over 111. I agreed to go to an urgent care facility. Well they told me they could not help me I needed to go to the ER. My insurance SUCKS on ER deductible so I called the doctor and they told me to come in the following morning.

My doc gave me a lecture that I should have gone to ER. She had me take my night med (makes me drowsy) in the morning as well as night. This did get my BP down enough that I could fly to Texas for my mother's 80th birthday that weekend. I spent the next few days in Texas then came home and back to laying around until I had to go back to doc. Unfortunately, the extra dosage of my med had me all foggy and hardly able to function. I would sit down and start to nod off. This makes it hard to spend much time online.

Today I picked up a new med to try, so I did not have to double up on the one that makes me drowsy. Since I live alone I told them I would start it on Monday, just in case of a reaction.

That being said, I think of you guys a lot, and hope to be back full force in a couple of weeks.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Donna
