Let's File This One in the Category Called...

"Things That Are Not Sexy":

Yep, that new high blood pressure medication has my lower legs and feet swollen to the size of tree trunks.

Ouchy.  Very ouchy.

I'm bustin' outta my skinny jeans, but not at the waistline, but in the calves.

My feet are achin' to get out of my shoes...they're soooo tight.  Yikes.  I think I may start wearing my flip flops (yes, in the February winter cold).

I can't wear my sh*t kicker boots.  They won't zip up.

The doctor wants me to keep taking the medication because he says it'll go away.  So, here I am.  Being patient.

Patience is not something that I have a lot of.

I remember not too long ago that I asked myself to promise to never forget what it feels like to be fat.  Well, ask and I shall receive.

  1. My feet swell when I fly. I always wear very loose shoes which are tight by the time we land. I hope this gets better before you go to London!

    I'm sending good vibes your way for this blood pressure issue to disappear.

  6. Ugh! I really really hate that you have to deal with that. It was actually one of the biggest things that fueled me in my journey. In the year before my surgery, my feet and ankles would swell if the temp was over 80 degrees ( and I live in the south so that is a good bit of time). One of the biggest NSVs I had this past summer was going the whole summer without swollen cankles. It is amazing how quickly and easily things can take us back to "that place".

  7. I walked a cross country marathon last September and my feet and calves swelled up like that. You have my sympathy. It's no fun. Try sleeping with your feet up under pillows so they're higher. It isn't particularly comfortable but it does help the swelling go down. Hope you feel better soon. xx

  11. Owwww! You poor thing. Eat some avocado or banana so the potassium can help you de-puff and I'm sure you already know this, but drink LOTS of water.

  12. Ouch, that looks painful. How long does the doctor think it will last? Maybe they can find different med for you that does not cause so much swelling.
