Sun, Jul 12 10:43am · Taking Eliquis and Metoprolol for A-fib: Concerned about side effects in Heart Rhythm Conditions

Afib raises risk of stroke, Eliquis the latest and considered most effective in prevention. Metoprotol slows heart rate in afib, does not correct afib. Makes people feel more comfortable with lower heart rate. I take both and metoprotol seems to be lowering my blood pressure too much. Taking a little less, though very careful to lower just alittle. I think Eliquis inflames my joints including my jaw though my cardiology person says inflammation of joints is not listed. There is alot not know about meds and the med people do not admit to much. In all fairness, those med heros are overwhelmed with covid19

Canceling my massage was a bummer since it's one of my big health promoting activities. But, so be it. Find some inspiring yoga utube, and other good instructors helping us with body movement. I have a body builder niece who is rather upset that the health clubs have closed, fortunately, the apartment building has machines. You just have to adapt.

We had a ranch in New Mexico several years ago. When I would have a manic attack, I would do things like this license plate door on a adobe workshop.

Mon, Mar 16 6:49pm · Bipolar and ideas of how to help ourselves beyond medication in Mental Health

Jim, now that I'm house bound due to the virus concerns, I'm trying to sort activities besides tv. I'm 72 and have about 25 journels of drawings, poems and essays from my past. Two or three chapters of the past. I get what you said about the past and the guilt people impose with someone actually pondering the past. But when your retired, with a weak heart, and home bound, just what am I suppose to do….I can read the thoughts of others and there lives, and I do. I can work outdoors cleaning up zero scaping which energizes me. I'm about ready to tackle the journels and make some decisions. No big bond fire since I live in the city and I don't want to pollute our precious air. Maybe the shredder. Or, maybe I'll read them and embarse myself with my sentimentality. Today I went through my notebook of a life time of resumes and letters of recommendation. At first I thought, this is embarressing, but I persisted and began t o see how much I did and what a good job I did. I think when I leave this world I'll take my notebook of resumes.
