Hurrah, for I have finally found a doctor who'll just give me the drugs that work and not whittle about my blood pressure! She took the reading 4 times (I think she may have bruised my arm) and decided that since it was steadily going down, there probably wasn't a lot wrong with it. Which is what I've told all the other doctors who've then deliberated a bit and decided not to believe me. Gah. New doctor is nice. She's not the one I'm registered with, unfortunately, but my registered doctor is also extremely nice. I went to see him last September when I was actually ill, and he gave me magic tablets and told me I had a fever that I hadn't noticed till he told me about it. So it seems like the doctors here may have actually gone to medical school at some point. There are good points to being home! Though I do have to pay for prescriptions here. Grr.
On a different note, I've been thinking that the memory-erasing thing in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind really wasn't such a bad idea. They should be able to do that - not with gadgets and stuff, but maybe with behaviour therapy or something, just to remove all the associations. That way you wouldn't forget, you just wouldn't be reminded constantly. It'd be nice if they could do that. (And if you haven't seen the film and/or have no idea what I'm talking about, it doesn't matter. But it's a good film, and you should see it!)
Anyway, I'm alive. Not having anything to do (someone give me a job, please!) is pretty boring, so updates might be infrequent for a while. I'm also trying to cut down on typing in order to take up knitting again and still be able to write. I check my e-mails most days, though, so if you leave me comments I'll get them, and might even reply, you never know!
