    Pete, good luck with the future. If you have not yet got one, try a wrist cuff blood pressure monitor, they are really easy to use and are reliably accurate. Do you have an over active thyroid condition, that can cause high BP.
    Stay well, slow down, take time for yourself.

    No matter what anyone tells you, it's never too late to start exercising.
    Even just a half hour walk every day does wonders for your health - physical and mental. More than half an hour is even better!
    All the best Peter, and like others have already alluded to, take time to smell the roses.

    Anyone who's done the first fix on a house rewire will think they've been exercising for hours!

    Cheers for the replies, like someone said above, you should get excrsize doing what we do.
  9. When someone mentioned exercise to me me years ago,my reply was we exercise everyday.
    Running up and down stairs in and out of lofts,chasing out boxes and bending and screwing pipe.The list could go on.

    Usually not. (Stress makes it go faster.)
    But plenty of manual work to make it go faster. Most employees would deem it a step too far for the pittance they are being paid.
    Who loses sweat now on the job? They will usually be foreigners.

    That's what I thought, but it's only relaxed exercise. Not the exercise that counts. It's joint-wearing-out exercise that ****s us up and doesn't help our hearts.

    Just to let everyone know I'm back at home, not perfect but a damn site better than Tuesday.

    I know everyone says it but until you experience it for yourself you can have no idea what lengths the NHS staff go to looking after you. They deserve 100 times the pay of those slimy little toads in Westminster who dictate doctors and nurses pay, that fact is irrefutable.
