Our Anniversary is December 21, yesterday, the "shortest day and the longest night " which we didn't learn until years later. It was busy, but just the two of us so still fun. We went out to lunch to try a new restaurant, delicious but heart s... Read more

Feeling grumpy at the gym

Back at the gym, disappointed at how much I have LOST these two months being sick. My husband is my trainer so I can grumble a bit, but nothing I can do but start back at square one! And the metroprol keeps my heart rate low so I get tired more... Read more

Beloved and I went to the gym this morning, my first time back since being started on the metroprolol. I couldn't go as far, as fast, or as vigorous as I used to be able to, but it's good to be back exercising. We will start working me up to wh... Read more

I thought my pants felt snug the last few days so I got on the scale this morning. Up 11 lbs since I left the hospital a month ago! Too much hard eggnog, too many holiday cookies. We have got to plan more meals to be eaten AT HOME instead of w... Read more

In California we had Kaiser where everything was covered and we never saw a bill, just paid the monthly premium. Now, here in South Carolina we not only pay an exorbitant monthly premium for our health insurance since our retirement health insu... Read more

I have bags under my eyes...yes, I'm 62 so they are to be expected but I could pack for a month cruise in my eye bags! We were in the mall, beloved and I, and I pointed out an expensive make-up store I thought might have a "cure". And the youn... Read more

Today I called a pharmacist and told him my recent history and the new meds I am on for high BP. He thinks I am still on meds too strong for what my body can handle and said I shouldn't have been started on THREE meds because now we have to fig... Read more
