The Emergency Room: Friday The 13Th Edition.


Recommended Posts

lawlz what a weekend. I had a normal appointment at the eye doctor to get hppked up woth some glasses friday. The 13th. So I got a vibe from the optimologist something was amiss. He comes back in looking as grim as a reaper and tells me " can you get to Chapel Hill to the emergency room... today?

He said I had a detached retina and a lot of other things in my eyees that indicated other health problems. Whoope!

So I go there, and get checked in and wait... and wait.. and.. nah it really wasn't so bad but the bad part is for some reason my Blood Pressure had spiked to.. wait for it... 280>140. LAWLZ. And somehow I was still alive. so they got that down, took blood, pee and a lotot the tests. As far as my eye, the specialist looked at it and says I will need "laser" surgury. I was supposed to do that today but after I told him I had taken some aspirin he felt it best to wait till a later date, probably a week or two.

I have no idea how I was walking around with a torn retina. My dog put her claws to my eye a little while back and made the whole eyeball bloody, but that was the eye that was NOT torn. right now, my guess would be... probably aliens.

Please, please, please get the BP in check. Stop sniffing all of the diesel fumes, that crap is killing all of us (and America, I might add). My dad and my father-in-law both had similar scares where one minor conniption would have ended in a stroke and, like you, they found out through odd (divine?) intervention for other problems. Glad you're laughing about it, but I'd have a stroke from being told bythe doctor that my BP was that high.

You better address the HBP before you end up having a stroke or worse. The crippling headaches alone would motivate me to do better. You do know your not in your 20`s anymore dont you?

thing is, I didn't./don't have the slightest headache or any outside symptoms at all. Yea, he ganr me a prescroptiom for the HBP. Lots of people in my family have that and diabetes so we're not the healthiest bunch

No more Viagra Fridays for you my friend!

But seriously...take better care of yourself. Check your BP regularly, hide the salt shaker, and lay off the fat back and side meat. This is from a man who knows what he's talking about and has 5 coronary stents to prove it.

but seriously, did the shopping today, have the shelves and fridge stocked with healthy goodies. My problem is I have to figure it all out. Fiids that help control HBP are usually not good for controling your bloos sugar and vice versa. Gotta work out the proper mix of carbs and proteins, But to be honest, the HBP is more my concern than the sugar right now.
