Oh maman j'ai mal au coeur, vite une verre de liqueur!

Some days I seem to have a few rants in me --- I intend to post merely a line or two, and get fired up and end up writing far more than I thought I had to say about a subject.

Other days, I have a lot of thoughts circling around in my head and I can't seem to pin any down into a coherent thread.

This high blood pressure thing is scaring me. My sitting pulse yesterday was 111, which is so not good. I have to see a goddam cardiologist. Perhaps I'm stressed over the upcoming student teaching placement. I feel sure I'll be sent to the ghetto. At least, that's what a barber who lives up in the area told me.

My husband, who is trim and fit otherwise, has high blood pressure issues too. Diet and exercise are his primary management tools.

No doubt that not knowing about your placement is making it worse, but even if you end up in the ghetto, it will be okay. I student taught in a "bad" school, but it was a very good experience in retrospect.

I'm otherwise trim and fit too. It's lame to have an affliction that lifestyle can ameliorate when I already have that lifestyle.
