Positive update for once. Just got back from the doctor (GP). Blood pressure is under control with current meds. As far as breathing goes, last time I biked there it took a bit over 15 minutes, and I was wheezing when I got there. Today, it took 10 minutes and I was breathing fine.

His theory on why my ankles keep swelling is sodium intake. Which sounds hinky to me, but I can use the motivation to cut out salt anyway. I go back in a month to see how the ankles are doing.

All in all, I'm feeling somewhat positive for once.

Good news is good news! Let us know how your sodium experiment goes...

Woohoo for good news and feeling positive!

Yay! I'm glad your health issues are improving. Now you can start exercising, which will help with the BP problems even more. Avoiding high levels of sodium generally starts with reading labels. Like sugar, the amounts in non-fresh food would knock your socks off. Alas, it also means limiting eating in restaurants because they tend to put too much salt in their food.

Utterly unrelated, I need to read over your post on bad things happening to good people. I've been working on a post on rape apologism for a bit, and your post made me think of a few things, and if it's cool I need to reference it so I don't have to retype it. It's related to magical thinking and pattern-matching mistakes.
