Went to the GP on Thursday. Yet another new doctor as the others completed their compulsory country town service and headed off to more attractive locales.
BP is 146/86. My trousers are loose. Cheerful disposition and Sunny smile all the while – thanks to BP medication, and equanimity pills. Gotta love those equanimity pills. I have cut out the osteopanadol for the sake of my liver, and I put up with the arthritis , which is tolerable anyway. If it gets too bad I’ll take more , or a diclofenac or two. My shoulder has been really good lately, but I have made a habit of sleeping with a hugging pillow to prevent me laying on it.
Dr B was impressed with the check-up, after looking through the records. He says I am doing everything right. He’s organised some blood tests to see how the liver and kidneys are holding up.
Looks like I could make it past 65 after all.
