Which is okay, by the way, as far as I can tell. I've discussed health maintenance, Catholic teaching, and getting a grip, before. (May 20, 2009) Much more to the point, the Church has something to say on the topic. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2276-2279, 2290-2291, 2296, for starters.)
The bottom line, as far as I can tell, is that we've got a responsibility to maintain our health. Hence the prohibition on recreational drug use - and approval of common-sense medical procedures.
OopsActually that 10 milligrams, then 10 milligrams later, is what I routinely do.
Today I broke new ground - and took all 20 milligrams in the morning.
A quarter-hour later, I'd made a phone call and talked with some medical folks - and told my wife what I'd done.
Now, more than eight hours later, the whole thing is something of an anticlimax. No chest pains: and I didn't even feel particularly tense during the day.
Not that I mind.
Just a Little FeverishAn hour or so ago, trying to figure out why I felt 'blah,' which wasn't on the list of things to look for, I checked my temperature. It was 99.9 Fahrenheit. A tad on the high side, but nothing to be concerned about.
Still, I'm having a bit of a time focusing - and made some glaring (and now-corrected) errors in another blog's post. So I intend to spend most of the rest of the day resting, drink plenty of fluids, and get a good night's sleep.
I've got something to say about hope - but trust that will wait until tomorrow.
