|This is what happens when I try to remove cat hair from comforter!|
Both my mother and I had doctor's appointments this week.....mine was with my new doctor. This is the kicker - my blood pressure was higher than my mother's!! I have NEVER had a problem with my blood pressure, though I am at the age that anything can happen. When the doctor asked if I had any ideas, changes, etc that might account for it, I explained the situation. She said, "I can't believe I met you....I have exactly the same situation!" She's an only child, discontented, ailing mother in Pennsylvania, etc. She agreed to that likely being the source of the high BP, but I still have to record it for several weeks and report back. It did make me realize that for my own well-being things need to be different.
Life is made easier by the support and company of friends.

- If Cheryl and I keep meeting at the Subway at the corner of Hwy 278 and I-95, people are going to start talking! I'm just glad it's convenient for a quick get-together as she travels to and from her sister's.
- Pamela and I try to get together once a week as she is going through much the same thing as I, except her mother has actually called the police on her! We went to the beach last week and out to lunch today.
- Yesterday I received a wonderful care package from my friends Down Under, Alan and Mairead. It was chock full of goodies and could not have arrived at a better time to provide a boost to my morale. I was really touched by their thoughtfulness.
- It's just nice to hear from friends, near and far, who say via phone or email, "haven't heard from you in a while. How are things going?" It provides that nudge I need not to go into total seclusion!
