I went back to my internist after a month of taking medications for high BP and elevated sugar. Although my sugar level has gone back to normal, he prescribed same medicines for at least two months more. I have to go back there in a week or two because he is monitoring my blood pressure which always has a tendency to go up. I am not stressed but I wonder why my BP is always on the rise. I relax by reading, gardening and yes updating this blog and reading other blog posts. I discovered new ones which I recently followed. They have nice and lovely photography blogs.
For the past week, I’ve been reading e-books. I recently discovered this author Elizabeth Cox. She has written several books but this is my first time to read one of them. A Question of Mercy really made me cry. It’s a story of a mentally disabled young man and his teenage step-sister. His family love him but he was misunderstood by many of their neighbors until the former decided that he undergo sterilization and lobotomy in a state-supported asylum. The day before he was due for the operation, he was found dead in a river near their place. The cover made me decide to try this one. The lush landscape of North Carolina was vividly described in the story. You can’t put a price in the love of family. It should always come first, shouldn’t it?
It’s nice to be back reading e-books again. It took me a long time to appreciate e-books because there is nothing like holding a real book in your hands. I got used to it eventually. Lately, I’ve been reading books by Australian authors. Done with 56 books, 31 % of my reading challenge.
How was your weekend? Have a nice and beautiful Tuesday everyone.
