Valley Of Fire Revisited

Hey all, I hope your Monday has or was a good one. Being off work today I decided to revisit the Valley Of Fire. As with my very first visit a few weeks ago, I left this state park with a smile. The photos are great but can never fully express the magnificent views, colors and sizes of the beautifully colored rocks, boulders and complete mountainsides. I was simply blown away again.

And this is yet another solid reason why I love my adopted state and home! But lately, I’ve wished I had someone to share it with. It was supposed to be shared with my Ex, but that’s a different story.

An update on my blood pressure problem for those who’ve followed me for a while now – I am taking several medications at once now. My last visit, my GP upped my daily dose of one of those medications, to the next available strength or level and so far knock on wood, the blood pressure has been forced down.

But, this particular medication has a rather strong side effect that I was aware of before using it – it makes me drowsy. I feel a bit like I’m stoned from toking a doobie! My eyes even look a bit droopy as well. A police officer may assume I’m stoned but whatever, I don’t give them reason to bother me.

It’s a bit of a pain in the ass but it’s worth the side effect if it keeps you from having a damned stroke. I lost an aunt in Michigan a few weeks ago to a stroke, she had had many of them. Things could be worse, and I hope the side effects will subside in time should I remain on this medication. Getting older sucks for some of us! (I don’t mean to sound negative)!

  1. OMG … what a spectacular area … and shots. I’m always partial to those ‘vanishing road’ photos 🙂

    When I started my b/p medication, years ago, they warned me about a whole slew of side effects. I got none … so I’m thankful.
