Well I did something stupid Friday

I took my medicine twice. I have never done that before. I separate it out each week in a pill dispenser for each day of the week. Friday was a particularly hectic day workwise and I was distracted and took Friday and Saturday dose of all my meds while I was talking to a colleague on the phone. I realize about 15 minutes after I did this. It was awful. The worst of it is I take blood pressure meds because of my stroke and my torn vertebral artery I have to be very careful with my BP. I am not supposed to let it get too high or too low either way could be a stroke for me. I've been told that if my BP gets below 90/60 to go to the ER. I had just gotten out of the hospital last week for another health issue I am going to need surgery for (will be a couple months out) and I did not want to go back to the ER. So bloody hell I spent all day Friday and Saturday hovering right at the 90/60 but not below. I probably should have gone in but I didn't I rode it out. Scared but I made it. Today my blood pressure is back to a safe range but Damn it I am so mad at myself for not paying closer attention. I am going to try to be a lot more mindful about slowing down and not letting work distract me when I take my medicine. I was supposed to start a new medication for the surgery I need and I couldn't because of my big mistake. On top of it all with all the anxiety I had this weekend I couldn't work and I really needed to. Tomorrow is going to be hell. Any ways if you've read this far thanks for listening to me reprimand myself for being distracted

And you really scolded yourself firmly. Now give her a hug tell her you love her and let's start clean from here

[@17829,TryingtoLava] that reminds of a time when I was younger standing at the entry she said ok close it, and I did now open it, I did , close it again and I did she said it's a door that's what it does. Do it again... Blah blah blah just another boring day at school

Don't beat yourself up too harshly, we all make occasional fuck ups.

It must have been a deep worry! Fortunate that you are okay, now.
Please consider
Depending on luck & trying to ride it out is a risky strategy, in case it goes bad the repair work is both difficult & danger, & costly too.
Why not have seven different containers & keep them in a closet? IDK your situation, but some way to prevent this from happening again
Love and best wishes, Hugs

[@1221722,Domking] yes in hindsight it was not a good idea not to be seen, but I am glad I am okay now. I think after this experience I won't let this happen again. I hope at least

And be careful for now on. Do the zen thing. One thing at a time. Avoid multitasking but finish everything. Take your time.

[@800649,kentex35] yes must find the zen before taking my meds 💯

[@326696,TheFragile] fair enough.

Just make sure when you take your meds it’s the only thing you are doing. Glad you are okay.
Be careful, bp is hard to deal with. Is there an underlying health issue that causes the uneven blood pressure?
[@326696,TheFragile] I’m sorry that sounds frightening. I wish you good health.
