I went to have my DOT physical yesterday. I passed. All is well and I can drive a bus for another year. If I choose. Again the subject of another blog another day.
I almost didn’t pass. My blood pressure was alarmingly high. The doctor said that if he were to enter that number into the computer I wouldn’t be able to drive a bus and why aren’t you having a stroke right now. O-O He must have seen my deer in the headlights look because he told me to go sit down and relax for 15 minutes and come back to be retested. I got my headphones and found some relaxing video about fish swimming in a pond in the woods and listened to soft music for 15 minutes. It worked. He took it again and it was lower than the “you can’t drive a bus anymore” range. Whew!
He then said. What is your plan to not be in this situation next year? O-O again. I said well, I should probably stop drinking sugary drinks. His eyes lit up and I swear he almost did a dance. “YES!” he said. “Awwwwww!” I said.
You see, I’m a pepper. I’m addicted to Dr. Pepper. I love it. I would marry it but I’m already married and my husband might frown on that. Dr. Pepper makes me happy. 🙂 Now I have to stop drinking it and that makes me sad. 😦
Well, family and friends. Grumpy Denise will be around for a few weeks. Try not to hate me too much because at the end of this I will be back to my normal self, just with a big ole hole in my life because I miss my precious DP. (Cue sad music, especially violins, I love violins)
It’ll be ok, right?
