One week ago today my blood pressure was 170/108. Way, way too high. For those of you not familiar with these numbers-I could have had a stroke. As my colleague drove me to the doctor, all I could think about was my little man. Thankfully God had me make it to my new family doctor. My blood pressure actually went down some to 160/100.
Since my appointment wasn't until a few more days and I left school early, I did not have all my readings that I had been taking for the past two weeks (never as high as it was that day). However due to my family history as well as where it was that day, the wonderful doctor gave me a prescription. I was suppose to take one a day, but since my job plays a big role in affecting my stress level, I decided to be proacitve and take two (which I was allowed to do in a week or so).
Seven days later and I have not had any headaches-yes mom, you were probably right, the headaches were most likely related. My blood pressure readings have been in the low 130's or high 120's/88-82. In fact, I took it before coming to Blogger and it was 121/81. Amazing what a difference I have felt such as energy, or even stress within this past week.
