My doctor is concerned about my blood pressure, and it usually seems to be high when I have it measured at the clinic, so he's given me this cuff to wear at home, connected to a little electronic box that automatically measures my blood pressure every half hour.

Ugh. I hate it.

The cuff gets itchy every now and then. I've got this air tube hanging from my arm to my pants pocket, where the box is. (Worst of all, I hafta wear pants!) Oh well, I only have to wear it for 24 hours. The downside to that is, I have to wear it for 24 freakin' hours!

I'll be so glad to get it off tomorrow.

Well, now that it's after 10:00 pm, the blood pressure monitor has gone from emitting a warning beep and taking my blood pressure once every half hour to taking my pressure once an hour, with no beep. This is so it won't wake me up.

Of course, it remains to be seen whether I'll be woken up by the loud whirring it makes when it pumps, or for that matter the squeezing of my arm.
