It has been a rough week.
I got the call from my doctor Tuesday afternoon that I didn't have to take anymore high blood pressure medication (and with that, no more prescription drugs at all.) What a joyous occasion!
But since then, it has been a real adjustment. Just like when I came off the Coumadin, my body is taking a lot of energy to adjust to no more meds. I've taken high blood pressure pills in one for or another for 10 years. Now, there is none.
I ran a mile outside yesterday morning and it felt like I ran 20 miles. Everything is more difficult. I feel tired all of the time.
This too, shall pass. On the plus side, my blood pressure has not shot up dramatically or anything and my resting heart rate remains 40 beats a minute.
Onward and upward!
