Hi Kitty, good to hear from you.

I am glad you had a good time with your daughter. And also glad that your son was strong enough not to buy into what your A was trying to get him to do.

About your high bllod pressure and heart palpitations. I have hyperthyroidism, which causes both high blood pressure and heart palpitations. Perhaps you should see your doctor and have them test for thyroid function. I understand from reading that high stress over long periods can cause hyperthyroidism. So we both are at risk. This is not something to let go as the palpitations can damage your heart and the hyper function can exargerate osteoporosis.

Please hang in there and do what you need to do for yourself. The tough part is not over and you will need to be strong each day. I encourage you to put yourself first, what is best for you each day. You deserve it, you have been putting others first for so long. Take good care, you are in my prayers.
