Ok so I made a dumb decision by going to work yesterday (despite a note from my doctor demanding
I stay off my feet until at least Monday). Sure I was doped up on Ibuprofen etc, but my broken toe can't scream out in pain when I make a stupid move. The only outlet it has is to get darker and swell up (which it did).
Oh and the Blood pressure thing
(148/103) I took an extended lunch yesterday and went to my primary care physician (which I haven't seen in 4 years and wasn't
too happy about me just calling in for a quick visit) took my pressure (6 times to be sure) and it was 120/82 which is completely
He explained I was probably "worked up" etc. I still wonder what the deal was since I got a similar reading at my mother's. Eh I decided to get one of those monitor things
anyway (while I have the cashage) since Doctors have been known to make mistakes and I don't want to just drop dead from a heart attack at my age (Dramatic I know, but heart attacks in your 30's
are often fatal). yea so this is the lasssst
I tried to call my birthmother to ask if Hypertension was hereditary in my family. She changed her number. Knowing her, it was intentional. I mean why did I have to answer that Private number while drinking a couple weeks ago? (I was super friendly but I don't think she was impressed so much) She'll call me eventually, she tends to be on the overly dramatic side.
After work I went to Costco and picked up these:
(left to right Blood Pressure Monitor, Fatal Shore
(an early history of Australia's criminal settlement) and Chantix (a potent new anti-smoking med mista Dr. suggested)
What I want to buy today....
(isn't she breathtaking
I've never owned a Laptop before. This is the Dell Inspiron E1505
. I am customizing it to a 120G Hard drive and 15.4" monitor. I have a 17" at home (tower) but it's like another 250 to bring this up to that size. A little excessive meethinks. I was seriously considering a MAC but the price range is a little steep for my budget.

(yea ok she's a nutjob
