I’m good at overreacting. I should win an award for it. I get ruffled at stupid things. I worry. I don’t hold my tongue when I often should. I need to work on this I know.
Yesterday was stressful, I woke to stress, had a day filled with stress at work and came home to…peace, serenity and a hot bubble bath…NOT! Yep, came home to stress. I can’t help but wonder what this stress is doing to my blood pressure (You were sure I was going to say blood SUGAR right? Well, I already know what stress does to my blood sugar, and it’s not pretty). I haven’t filled the prescription yet from my last post. I know, I know. I plan on taking all my prescriptions to a new pharmacy to comparison shop this weekend, though it means I am delaying starting the BP meds. While he was contemplating putting me on the pills, Doc mentioned something about the med not only protecting my kidneys (?), but also lowering my blood pressure which may help me “calm down”. Calm down? Is that possible? I’m ready to try anything at this point and I’d rather not start drinking heavily.
In honor of calming down, I’m posting a favorite pic of mine that just so happens to make me smile every time. I totally ruined any hope of a “Wordless Wednesday” post with my rant, but darn it, I’m just not going to worry.
Here’s my dog back when she was just a pup. The breeder had a stack of Benjamin’s in her hand the second I saw this. Little did I know that she’d literally pee on my pillow when we got home, (would you like some stress with that?). However, she was totally worth the stress (and a new pillow). J
