Having dipped below 250 pounds last week end, I am celebrating by grazing on Chips Ahoy, tea and cereal. We are quite often too house bound, work bound, or just lazy to go out and buy real food. At other times we go on great vegetable buying safaris, make soups and salads and eat plenty of broccoli, which I prepare in my own special way. Our diets are....varied, but always with buckets of tea.

Went to bed very early, but woke at three. Took a sleeping pill to sleep fitfully until 5.40. Now at work very tired and somewhat sleepy. Slept on streetcar for about forty of the forty five minutes to Crawford. Two minutes late for work.
The clients are been shown accommodation for single men over fifty nine. I feel a little envy. Of course our home is luxurious, but it is far away and I have lived small sways of my life alone. I always enjoyed them.

Another week, another few dollars, even today, when I stayed home sick, under slept. March madness, I suppose, joined by all the usual older person's complaints. I'm getting too old to be old. WD says that the recompense for all the inconveniences of old age is still being alive(!). I called him and he indicated how I might improve that elusive sleep hygiene.
Spell checking is, very slowly, teaching me how to spell.. Now I want one of those programs, which bypasses arthritic fingers, by letting me talk at the computer which turns what I say into written text. I will blog on right up to my demise. It would be nice to finish with a joke like,"bugger Bognor", or, "Either this wall paper must go, or I must".
At home, mainly by myself, I did fall asleep a couple of times today. Perhaps I should never have given up the beta blockers, which, thinking I would be at work today, I took again last night since my tremble had returned in force.
Must run to watch, "The Fifth Estate", about injection sites.

Some people say it is because of changing barometric pressure. I've never heard a doctor say this, although there are plenty who will talk of allergies, rag weed, dust mites and other causes of physical malaise, which, in my youth, were only talked about by CRANKS.
But back to the barometric pressure. Will one day these changes and differences be reported on the evening news to alert us to spring and other seasonal fevers?
The sense that lots of people are also under the weather is actually a great relief for me. I know when I began to feel a little off kilter and when this progressed to something quite a bit worse. It would be comforting if someone could tell me that it will all be over by April, or Easter even.
Maybe that's what Easter really is. The fresh start.
I will post this on two blogs because I want to garner opinions about changing barometric pressure.
