The only time I stepped away from the computer on Wednesday was for my annual exam. Unfortunately, after five months of part-time veganism, drastically-reduced sodium intake, and tons of exercise, my blood pressure isn't that much better. I've managed to get the top number down a lot, but the bottom one is still far too high. So it's time to try medication, which I started yesterday.
I was really stressed about it after reading all the warnings, but when I posted the picture on Facebook, a surprising number of people replied that they were also taking it and nobody mentioned any terrible side effects except lots of peeing. I already pee all the time, so hopefully that won't increase too much.
I'll definitely be taking it easy today, workwise. I just finished updating some documentation to reflect the latest of the changes we tested yesterday. It's a good day to be coming off of a couple of extra-long days, as I have several errands. At 7:15, I'll get some blood drawn at the doctor's office. I'm choking down black coffee right now because that's all I can have. Gross. I also need to go to the post office because I sold my old Utilikilt on eBay last night. Not sure how much I paid for it back in the early 2000s, but I looked at their site on archive.org and they were going for $100-140. I sold it for $128, which is awesome.
I have another appointment this afternoon, but that'll be covered later. Mostly I'd like to just lounge around; I'm channeling the boys yesterday on the heated floor.
I'm excited to report that I'm basically debt free, for the first time in ages. There's about $60 on one credit card, and the amount that I got paid for the kilt will cover my Paypal balance. My credit score is also very awesome right now, too. Priority #1 for spending is a new office chair, for sure. I'd like to just order one on Amazon so I don't have to go find one and get it home, but I'm worried about buying one without trying it out first.
