Day 2, Tuesday - Good, moderate: 30’
Good night’s sleep, 9h20. Could sleep till almost 8. Few breaks, only one longer, due to headache! No pains, negligible Ache (1), stiffness better (3).
IBSD at 4pm is gone 0 since I left off the sour gherkin at 1pm. (too sour? pity!)
P-pain almost gone 1 after a certain exercise.
Still headache at night 4 calls for reducing blood pressure meds even more?
3h on the song in the evening was no problem 0-1, in the morning directly after table tennis was praps the problem.
No lower back problems of late (last week), apart from the pin-stabs during acupressure: From thigh treatment plus back exercises 2x?
No thigh stabs tonight.
(Analyze my 24h bood pressure)
Aaah, is this what life without work feels like
Q10 (because of ‘muscle pain’ perhaps by the statins for my cardiovascular issues):
Just looked up my notes: Was enough in my bloods. There’s old studies to take it together with ginkgo. Can be compensated by nuts and legumes, which I eat lots. Only if very high cholesterol, mine is down due to diet. Reduced intracellular amounts of ATP, which I seem to have had, altho docs said that isn’t really measurable.
It seems it also has a positive cardiovascular effect, for me relevant is that it increases the good cholesterol, which I could do with a bit. The article on helpherself.org (linked to a dead link) recommends close monitoring, which would not be easy, since my blood is flowing well, despite the plaque. There’s also articles which link it to fibromyalgia/ME/CFS (results are slightly encouraging, an overview concludes, perhaps reducing pain, depression and headache, perhaps as antioxidant, perhaps on a mitochondrial level.).
The mayoclinic.org lists 9 side effects, all of which I am very sensitive to. So NO!
Only not so good time was stressing about getting to granddaughter in time and getting songs ready for my teacher in time, 15 mins each = 30’ (not bad tho). Rest really is quite good today, better than just OK. Taking everything easy, respecting limits, not overdoing, lying down in between…
OK outdoor table tennis with mask over mouth (no-one near), 4 games non-stop, not stooping, then 1 quick errand. Still OK. Improving songs lying down OK, 2h zoom meeting with friends mainly lying down: strained, so I did other things during the last half hour. Song 15’. No rest, housework. I’M STILL GOOD, tho.
Bed fairly early… Wow!
