When I was a kid and I seemed to be a little "off my feed", my mom might tell me, "You look sorta peaked." That's two syllables, pronounced "peak-ed".
Yesterday I felt rather off-kilter: very tired, with a faint, dull headache. I never get headaches.
This morning I felt even more tired and still had the dull headache. I chalked it up to three days of motorcycle riding.
I always put my daily pills in one of those week-long pill holders. Now, I only take one prescription drug, for blood pressure. I also take a baby aspirin, a multi-vitamin, a calcium tablet, and a fish-oil tablet. After breakfast I dumped today's pills into my hand and started taking them one by one when I realized there was an extra pill in the batch, an extra blood-pressure pill. I looked at my pill supply for the next two days, and in each day's portion was an extra amlodipine pill. This leads me to believe I have been taking a double dose of my blood pressure medication for at least a couple of days.
No wonder I've been so tired!
So I'll get back to my Eureka Springs adventure as soon as I perk up.
I just took my blood pressure: It's 115/52, so I think I'll live.
