This is my second day of reducing my blood pressure medication and I'm tired all the time. Yesterday I slept for most of the afternoon and evening, and then all through the night. Today, I'm up at my usual time, although woken by the alarm this morning, and I've already dozed off on the sofa while waiting for the kettle to boil. I'm sure it's a coincidence and nothing to do with the change in medication ... maybe I've picked up one of the many bugs that are being passed around?

Luckily I don't have much arranged today so don't have to go out if I don't want to. D will be here in a few minutes to continue the work on the bathroom and I am expecting a Tesco delivery this afternoon, but that's it. The time is my own to do what I want but I know it's not going to be the shredding because I caught myself thinking that I was too tired to consider doing that ... any excuse!!

It's raining on and off so I don't know whether I'll go for a walk or not. I was considering a pleasant amble along the canal towpath, complete with camera, but the weather isn't the best so ... I'm not sure. My reading chair is calling me!


  1. It could be coincidental but I think a day around the reading chair sounds a very good idea - make the most of the fact that you can! :-)
    Hope you feel brighter again soon.

  2. I hope you feel better soon Eileen. There are some funny bugs around, they seem to last a day or so and then clear off! Take care of yourself.xx

  3. Oh I do hope you are not catching something. There's so many colds going around & I get quite ansey about keeping The Peace at church for fear of those gems roosting with me! Colds are the worse. I say heed that call from the new comfy cosy chair.

  4. Take it easy while your body adjusts to the changes. Are you keeping track of your BP at home?

    1. No I'm not as experience has shown that the monitors for home use never work properly and just state 'error', even when the doctor tries! There's also the issue of falsely raising the true reading by focusing on the BP.

  5. Joy, Carole, Mary-Lou, I took it easy yesterday and feel much better today. I think it is more likely to be stress related rather than a bug, but I'm back to normal so am putting it out of my mind.
