Did a bit of garden weeding this afternoon, and whilst my mind was empty I started thinking about side effects of medication (as ya do). My back ached and my feet hurt when I tried to kneel, I felt exhausted - and I felt cold even though the sun was shining. I thought back to the days when I'd have completed the little chore in 30 mins and then have gone on to mow the lawn. Today I've come back indoors for a cuppa and a 'sit down' - how pathetic!
I've tried so many BP meds I've lost count, and they've all had unacceptable side effects but my friend has been on the ones she was first offered 7 years ago - WHY?
Its amazing no-one's done a survey on this. Do people of a certain blood group/ethnicity/eye colour/etc react differently I ask? Does lifestyle, early years, heredity have any bearing? Such a study would seem more use to more people than an experiment I saw recently on TV to see whether you got wetter running or walking 20 yards through a shower of rain (the answer was - it made no difference).
I'm sooooo tired.
