Just got back from the doctor, and I'm now at 122/86! Given that I was at 149/99 while at $howboat, this is a real improvement and a remarkable validation of my decision to find a new job. It also really supports my belief that the stress of working there was the majority contibuting factor to the high blood pressure. Yay!
PS: Proust is at page 46. Very distracted by the Kage Baker book my brother brought over for me.
