Good afternoon peeps,
Well, no luck in dropping blood pressure. It needs meds. And people call it the silent killer but I can feel it in the pressure headache and nausea.
Today I have sat here watching the rain, done my housework, taken everything to the laundry, and put my new Self/less DVD on my new DVD player TV.
Did I tell you about the new tv?
It was from the guest house that is being cleared out, and it is a flat-screen, new last year, very good quality, with built-in DVD player.
They had five of them to get rid of as they are not opening a new guest house when they relocate, and they offered me one, which was so kind.
So this new tv is sitting on the chest at the end of my bed, very good for watching films, although I cant get the arial sorted yet so it is on a portable arial and I am using it for DVDs anyway.
Yesterday and this morning I watched Slumdog Millionaire, an old favourite. And when my Self/less DVD arrived I put that on and it is playing now.
Do you remember me saying Self/less wasn't really my normal type of film? It is a psychological thriller, and it does get violent but actually it is interesting, I went to see it with my mate immediately after buying Florence P. Nortycar, me and my mate sat in the pub with a pepsi talking about forensic psychology before we went into the cinema to see Self/less, and I thought how strangely similar it was to me having a new life of sorts but with flashbacks to the old life so frequently.
This afternoon I will collect my laundry and maybe post a letter or two, and then I head for town to have a nose around before I start my training for the delivery driving job.
It's funny that after three days of hard frost on the car in the morning, it was pouring with rain when I went to do the papers this morning.
I am working every day this week, one way or another. My friend with cancer is feeling weaker and more tired, although she is home, so I will be doing some cleaning for her. I have shifted some of my work to Thursday due to the blood pressure monitor and then after this evening's training I hope to go ahead with delivery driving as well.
I also have dentist, tutorial, specialist gym blood pressure assessment to give me a safe gym routine to help lower blood pressure without risking a stroke. And I have a needs assessment coming up, at last, this is to do with what support I need with university, if the church let me continue university in peace!
I have been back to my diet and health and fitness club and so I will continue learning good healthy cooking and recipes and things there as well as watching my weight, and no it isn't weightwatchers, their food is plastic! :)
I may also have another heart scan to see how the blip is doing.
I can't remember the last few days, I am just struggling to stay on my feet and keep getting things done.
I see Gavin Ashenden is raving about the Lord's prayer and intolerance, would he listen to himself?!
Doesn't he see his attacks on abuse survivors and vulnerable and minority groups as intolerant?
The former name of this blog and the name of it's sister blog are to do with my sense of humour, which I hope to keep to the end, which appears to be ever more rapidly approaching. At least I laughed, and I laughed at the people who were destroying me. Don't forget that.
