Yes I know how that sounds, what could be worse than death right? Well let me back up a little bit. A few years ago I was diagnosed with high blood pressure I was put on a medication for it and it was under control and then my doctor and I decided to try a different medication that was supposed to help with my blood pressure and my migraines! Sounds great right? I was on that medication a couple of years, every time I would go and see any of my doctors my bp was high and the comment always got thrown around "well, people get nervous at the doctor (and I knew I didn't but I let it ride) and it would be ignored. Back in December of this year I got sick, at first I was thinking cold, or flu but it kept dragging on and on. Went to a few doctors and each time I had very high BP readings and again "you must be nervous"! Finally I went back to my primary doctor about this cough, that actually still isn't completely gone, and my BP was 197/99! Before she could say anything I said THIS is a problem! We decided to go to a new medication and finally got my BP under control! I was knocking on the door of "strokeville" or "heart attack land". That takes me back to the worse..I have known a few people who have had major strokes and didn't have the opportunity to change things and now are immobilized or have depleted brain activity. I know I am not out of the woods yet, I still have to work at the weight loss and I am having a stress test to see how my heart is doing this week but I am looking at the glass half full. I found this issues without having a complete health break down.
