Well, crud...

It seems I am a bit sick...

The last couple of days (3) I've been coughing up nasties and having a bit of high blood pressure. The doctor has given me some meds to clear up the (sorry) mucus and some more antibiotics to keep me from having walking pneumonia...yeah, it's that bad. The Doc also asked me to eliminate all salts and caffeine from my diet. That's gonna be tough, but since high blood pressure runs in my family, I have decided to begin a work out regiment and will (gasp) stop drinking coffee. This should be interesting. The Docs ask me to tone it down a bit and stop burning the candle at both ends...I think I may have to quit one of my three jobs. Anyhoo, the meds should kick in tomorrow and I'm going to take a day off of work.

You don't sound well old chap. I get occasional high blood pressure too (multiple jobs and too much salty food), I've changed my diet a lot recently and it's working out ok.

Mostly living on smoothies and berries now and I've still got a belly on, but feeling better for it. Hope you're feeling better soon too.

Hope you're feeling better, I've been a bit rough with the old sinuses being very blocked, I've been sniffing menthol crystals in boiling water with a towel over the my head and bowl. Boy those crystals are strong !!
