Sometimes a little rest is in order
I've also been taking metabolism-enhancing stimulants that have given me a boost in energy (very unwise to take, I know). Today I'm skipping them because I'm under even more powerful effects from what happened yesterday afternoon. I'm looking forward to a certain something next week, and my sustained eagerness has kept my heart rate very high. In fact, from pure anticipation, my pulse was already racing at 100 for a full 30 minutes beforehand, and I've been almost as excited since.
Perhaps the excitement continued through my dreams, because this morning I woke up with a bit of a nosebleed. It might signal that my blood pressure is temporarily through the roof. At lunchtime I'll visit the company medical center to have it taken. If it is high, at least it will be from a far happier cause than three years ago. Late one night, I was unable to sleep because a particular person weighed heavily upon my mind, and suddenly my nose started bleeding from the stress and high blood pressure. As great as she was, I had to admit she wasn't worth that. I had another nosebleed a couple of hours later, and another in the morning.
Update: 140/70. It's fine, the nurse assured me, though I've never had my systolic pressure so high (at least relative to my diastolic). She suggested it's the dry winter weather that prompted my nosebleed, which I had considered, but dry weather never seemed to affect my nose before.
