Well, still working on my New Year's resolutions...some are going better than others. Making major progress on scriptures and prayers but caught myself on the act or react challenge. The other night I sitting at the computer and suddenly felt light headed, so immediately I react-panic! All kinds of things/possibilities run through my head....diabetes complications, a stroke, heart attack, brain tumor, etc. So then I tell my husband of my symptoms and he calmly suggests I lay down. I do and that helps but still there are moments of dizziness. After a night of sleeping, I'm better, but still have occasional moments of feeling light headed. Can't figure out what is happening so I pray about it.
Then later in the day, I'm at Walmart to get a refill of my new blood pressure medication which I've been taking for about a month and it has a warning label which I had read before but it hadn't registered till now..."may cause dizziness." BINGO! Hmm. Interesting when the medicines you take cause side effects that scare you more than what you are taking them for. So now I will stop taking that medicine-ran out of it anyway and get into my doctor for a new medicine and see what side effects it brings...life is a challenge and so are resolutions. "Act not react"...it's faster and easier to react!
