i am having a weird kind of medical test to follow up with my recent high blood pressure to check my adrenalin levels (wanna bet i do as much as i routinely do because they probably are a bit out of whack???)...and it has a couple of really rotten rules attached to it...no caffine, no tobacco products (this means... OH MY FREAKIN GAWD!!! cold turkey...no substitute nicotine patch), no alcohol, no antihypertensives or NSAIDS, no stress, no strenous physical activities... (to name a few)...nothing that might artificially effect my adrenal gland for three days prior to or during the 24 hours of the test.
so in short..for the next FOUR days, i am going to be very unhappy, sore and absolutely miserable in pretty much every single way.
best to stay far, far away.
(this has been a public service annoucement to keep everyone safe...my apologies in advance. i should be ok by tuesday when i can slap a patch back on.)
