I Have Been Avoiding Reporting
About a two months ago, I had a bout of bronchitis. It curtailed my activities. At the same time my blood pressure became a challenge. I have not been able to get in to stay in ranges below stroke danger levels. (179/115) I am using every natural method I can think of. I have now joined 'Curves' to be able to get exercise in, because outside it has been excessively hot. Indexes over 105 degrees. If I get out and work my garden even early in the morning, it takes 2 hours to cool down and reduce my blood pressure. I am in a dilemma. It has caused my ability to concentrate on tasks to falter and oh my, I am way behind again in the house cleaning. I could use some prayers to inspire me on a better method ...do not say go to the doctor, I did he gave me a medication that would make me cough more, which caused my blood pressure to go back up... Hopefully the exercise will do the job and I can stay away from sugar.
The second son did help me greatly. He fixed the plumbing in the bathroom, so the sink is working and the bathtub puts out more than a trickle of water to shower in. Good things.
I don't mean to be a complainer. I am just reporting on why I am performing on a lower scale.
