Dealing with high blood pressure

I have high blood pressure, but with massive doses of Diovan, I keep it in the range of 140/80 to 120/80.
Today I went on a long bike ride with two lunatic friends who ride much too fast. I came home, had a margarita, stood up, and flopped back into my chair, nearly fainting. My blood pressure is 87/58.
So what do we learn from this? If you have high blood pressure, drink Margaritas.

maintaining perspective

I’m old enough now, and have had enough “experiences”, that I can overcome anxiety over the economy and layoffs by reminding myself how wonderful it is that I don’t have cancer.

An even simpler reminder comes at the end of “American Beauty”:

It’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world… It flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.

my mistake

It’s tortuous, not torturous.  I thought torture was involved.

It’s protuberance, not protruberance. I thought protruding was involved.
