So last night I felt a little odd toward the end of work, felt like my tie was too tight and I told my wife that it felt like my blood pressure was up. Wake up this morning to a killer headache in the back of my head so of course my hypochondriac self thinks he is having a stroke. So take some tylenol and go to work, felt relatively ok. Around 12:45 I decide to eat my sandwich and read Fark. For some reason the screen is blurry, I am having some odd tunnel vision effect. Well I knew then I was definitely not normal so I drove to the nearby hospital. Sit in the ER for around 5 hours. Get a CT scan, a chest xray, an EKG and a blood pressure check. Turns out I have mega high blood pressure. So really it turned out ok and I found out I wasn't about to keel over. Got some medicine and will start monitoring it glad I am still alive. Of course now I am listening to the Caucus news. I just heard the Obama and Hillary speech after Hillary's big win. And now my head is hurting again. The silly appeal to the poor and middle class always makes me shake my weary head. Liberal policies hurt the poor and middle class yet some of these people believe it. The religious fervor of the people does tell me all I need to know though. That being said, after that brutalness I almost wish I would've keeled over than listen to that silliness. Bring me some Aspirin!

That post reminds me of visiting my Grandma in the nursing home. Next thing you know we'll be hearing about your bunions and then, God forbid, your "GALL BLADDER TROUBLE", I can hardly wait.

I am deeply touched by your concern. I basically blogged this since our mutual friend suggested it. I will try to be healthier and more entertaining in the future.

Just so you know, I am glad you didn't have a stroke, because if there is anything worse than having to remind some old guy to take his blood pressure pills it's having to watch him drool.

I am fully aware that I am setting myself up for some SERIOUS karmic retribution, but I can't help myself.

Well, Archduke, I guess it's good that you didn't decide to go with your alternate pseudonym, The Earl of Empathy.
