Political Rant – Pre-Existing Conditions not covered?

Every now and then I have to go into one of my Rants about the callous stupidity of our nations politicians.

This is one of those rants about these heartless and cruel politicians and their attempt at splitting people with Pre-Existing Medical Conditions away from the rest of the population, essentially condemning them to eventual poverty and becoming second class citizens, with health problems that will often lead to the depletion of any saving they have or worse, their deaths.

Blood Pressure versus Coffee

I have high Blood Pressure!

It’s just a fact of life for me.

Even if I were able to isolate myself from the growing number of idiots who dominate the news networks, and even if the government lowered my taxes and started making all of the free-loaders in our country get jobs and pay their own way, I would still be one of those people with High Blood Pressure.

So, I have dutifully taken my prescribed pills each day so that my whole body gets pulled down into a slower pace.

And that’s OK, too.

But, I do cheat.

Every morning I drink Coffee. I mean I drink real coffee, not some chemically altered concoction they call decaffeinated.

Sure, I know I’m not supposed to do things that will raise my blood pressure, but I am addicted to Coffee. And, I have found that if I take my required dosage of meds, and then drink my morning coffee, my brain can absorb and react to what I see on the news for a couple of hours before my meds pull me down again.

This works for me; taking my meds to protect myself from the side effects of high blood pressure, and then once I am out and about, letting my meds kick in and  level my attitude out, a bit.

My Doctors tell me that; “at your age, you need to be reasonable about how much Coffee you drink”, so I do.

I’m down to only one pot of Coffee, each morning!

Living within my limitations – Doctors and Medicines!

 

Yeah, I’m a SENIOR!

So What!

My lifestyle may be somewhat limited relative to my youth, but it does allow me to tell many of the irritating people of the world to …..

Just leave me the Hell alone, and maybe I’ll show you the same respect.

Oh, don’t worry, I’m OK ….. really.And I’m actually having a good day. But, I thought a Bitching session was in order, so, here I go.

Earlier, I was just updating my LIST of medications on my Smartphone for reference on my trips to my numerous Doctors.

Here is one of my “irritating” problems that from my perspective need fixing.

Yoga for Seniors – 7 Yoga Exercises a Senior can do, on their feet.

 

OK, Yoga is Cool.

And, I really can see how it can help a person keep their body in better condition.

Here’s my problem.

I took a couple of Yoga classes two years ago. The instructor said up front that it was designed for beginners and we would be Ok taking the class.

Well, after the second class, I was on my back, on the sofa, for over a week. My back hurt so bad, in fact, that I never went back for another class in yoga.

But, there is still hope for me and Yoga, I think.

I just read this article on HubPages by a fellow writer and it has really made me think. In fact, I printed the article and I am going to use these exercises, myself.

You see, the article lists seven different Yoga exercises that a person can do while standing on their feet.

This, I can do. Oh, I may not be able to reach down or out as far as they show in the pictures, but i can do these exercises.

Click on the link below and read the article for yourself, especially if you are another limping and worn out Senior like myself.
