Yesterday’s visit to the Medical Consultant was a great success. My blood pressure is now normal, on less than half the tablets I was previously taking. His diagnosis of over-medication has obviously been correct. I postulated that it was surprising I had not realised that 2 years after retiring from a stressful job, I would be bound to be less inclined to high BP. However, I expressed the wish to be feeling fitter than I often do. After deciding between us that I am all the better for no longer falling down all over the place, he cut to the nitty gritty. There was a slight pause, whilst he weighed up the consequences of what he was about to say……..

I don’t mean to be flippant, but we have to accept some of the consequences of getting older.

Score: 2 to him and 1 to me, I think.
