Not Bad,, Just Not Right

I'm tired and I hurt every single minute of every single day. I know it's mostly just "old Arthur" up to his old tricks in the pain department and I know I gotta keep moving or he'll take over completely, the old devil. I think a lot of the tiredness is due to the blood pressure pill I have to take every day to keep my heart from skipping around. My blood pressure has always been in the low/normal range so that little blue pill makes it even lower. The couple of times I've checked it this week it's been like 96/60 or thereabouts and it's making me feel like it's a chore to pick up one foot and put it in front of the other.

I was reading something or other the other day and this jumped out at me cause it's exactly the way I feel at times,

"As if traveling down a road and having someone shove you off. Still traveling in the same direction as the road but walking in the brush and rocks beside it. The road's right there, but damned if you know how to get back on."

Oh man...you poor thing...maybe you should check with your doc and they can either try a different med or change your dosage??
Feel better soon!!

Arthur is a mean ol' cuss. I wish you could get to feeling better sooner than later, and able to be back on the path. (HUGS)

Sorry you're going through a rough patch. Hope you feel better very soon.

I feel for ya, Brenda. I don't suffer from the same thing as you but the journey sounds awfully familiar. I think it's easier for me because I don't have little ones around who need me -- it must be tough for you when you want to play with the kids and you're hurting.

That sounds like me a little, I must be in the ditch on the other side of the road. :) ec

You take care ms. Brenda. You should check to see what's making you so tired.

That doesn't sound right. There should be a better way to deal with that problem. Hope you get feeling better soon.
