In a bid to beat the nefarious Ms Nature into submission I have hit upon more aggressive press ups as part of my exercise regime. There is nothing particularly exciting about these, it’s just press ups performed on chairs, but the elevation allows you to dip the shoulders lower and increase the movement at the wrists (ha take that Ms Nature). I share this with you only because I was sat here earlier merrily talking to myself saying “Oh you really don’t like that do you? Ha better get used to it” and then, when I dropped a can of soda, “Oo fighting back eh?”. Of course I wasn’t actually talking to myself but the dark witch of nature but I wonder if that truly excuses threatening your own body or does everyone do that?
I have maintained steadfast refusal to listen to anything that the medical ‘experts’ say to me and continue to take the fight to Ms Nature but in doing so has my view of the world changed? I read stuff from people far worse off than me who say that pain is a motivator but I am not sure if they treat it the way that I do, as a sign of weakness from the competition. On reflection they probably don’t but how many people have actually read the blog and follow the logic that gives rise to Ms Nature and her dark arts of punishment? If they knew who was responsible perhaps they to would see pain as victory ……
Just in case it is my perspective that is out let me ask you what you would think I meant if I said “somebody was outside calling me last night”, I know it’s obvious but please bear with me. When I had this conversation with Jo she thought that I meant that somebody had pressed the entry buzzer for the flat, I know how mad is that? some people live in a completely strange world don’t they? Of course, as any normal person would realise, I meant that somebody stood on the pavement serenading me whilst eating a takeaway but you knew that because we have a normal perspective. Thank you, that small exercise has confirmed that I do indeed have a normal perspective on the world, nearly had me worried.
As a final note for today’s entry I would like somebody to train my GP in box ticking. As part of my BP review I had to have a blood test and dutifully turned up this morning for the removal of red stuff for test purposes. Doc says that we need to test kidney function as it can be affected by BP meds so I figure one test and probably a bit for luck right? 9 tubes of blood later and we were done! I think he must have either ticked every box or the “all tests” box, I am so concerned by the fluid loss that I may have to thin the remainder with some alcohol!
