I'm not sure what to write about. My head is kinda foggy these days. I have been not feeling 'normal' since I had Elizabeth. She nearly killed me, after all. So, I went in to see my doctor 2 weeks ago. My blood pressure was incredibly high. They immediately put me on medication. I asked the doctor why I would be seeing this now...I'm losing weight...moving more...what the heck??? He said he didn't know, but to continue with the weight loss and the moving...except hold off on the moving for a week or two til the medicine kicks in. They took lots of my blood and will let me know if they found anything bad. I haven't heard from them...I'm hoping that means no news is good news, but I'm afraid to call and press the issue. I'll be going back in a couple of weeks, so we will discuss it all then for sure. But, needless to say..I have felt very, very tired. Physically and emotionally. When I went in, my nurse had a cow when she saw my blood pressure, told me I could have a stroke at any minute, and then ran out to get the doctor. Doctor Durch was calmer, but still did a lovely job at scaring me and causing some serious hypochondria on my part. (o:

Anyway, I am not the type of person who likes to discuss myself or my ailments. Just not my thing. So, here is a cute picture of my little Connor, who turned 5 last week! Can you believe that? Five years old! He can be such a little turd, but he is such a joy. We love him so much!
Oh, and just a quick note about Weight Watchers...I got a call yesterday and the local Weight Watchers vlogger wants to come to our home and interview me and then also interview me at one of my meetings. Nice, eh? I'll let you know if it gets onto the WW site.
Better go. I can hear Spencer in our bedroom teaching Connor the basics on letter sounds. They really want Connor to learn how to read, so they are helping me teach him. So cute! I've gotta go watch.

Sorry about your blood pressure. I hope you get it figured out!! Don't go having a stroke on us.

Oh I am sooo sorry you're having such a scary health time... I know its hard and scary, but definitely call and press the issue with your doctor's office. Your kids need their mommy to be in tip top shape, so make the call! And if there's anything the Weiner Family can do from a distance.. let us know!!!

Sorry you aren't doing well. I know how crappy it is to not feel well when you have a baby and kids to keep up with. I spent 6 months feeling horrible after Nate was born before I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. The great thing is that there is a medication for just about everything out there! Hope they find something for you soon. Hang in there!

Hope you feel better soon. I agree with Katharine call the doctor. That is what they are paid for. Hopefully the medicine does help with things.

I understand tired and blood pressure freaks:
I've had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for 14 years so I always feel tired and sickly.
Last year I got my blood pressure taken by some other doctor's nurse and my blood pressure was borderline and she was freaking out and telling me that I couldn't have my prescription until it went down. Then I saw my own nurse and she didn't freak out and I was like, Sheesh!
It's also not fair to exercise and lose weight and then have a health problem! Not fair at all!
Good Luck!
