Day 3... where did it go?

Thursday, February 04, 2010

Ok Day three did not go as planned at all!

I had to go pick up my car for the third time from the dealership, that is an adventure all by itself, they are about 50 miles away, so I was on the road for 3 hours, praying it wouldnt break down again! By law we have a lemon of a car, another story! I took my healthy snacks, as I didnt want to stop anywhere and eat. At any rate, I was feeling pretty bad by the time I got home. I ate lunch and had some tea.

An hour later and my blood pressure took a huge dive and I felt pretty bad! I did not log back in to track my food yesterday, I didnt walk. Heck, I didnt meet half of my goals!

I went to bed by 9pm and slept until 730 this morning; this is not like me!

I finally made my appointment with the cardiologist this morning - YES I have been dragging my feet hoping that the low bloood pressure was a fluke!, or some side affect from meds,ect. Excuses, excuses, excuses. The truth is im just plain AFRAID and Im tired of being sick all of the time, and I am very tired of seeing Doctors. But I am yelling at myself - to not be a fool!

At any rate, I feel better today. I am taking my blood pressure in about 15 mins and having my fiber one cereal - then hoping to catch up on Spark.

Keeping on keeping on!

    I hope the doctor can figure out soon what's going on with the blood pressure. Hang in there.

    Have you considered that you bp meds may just need adjusting? When my pressure dropped I got to quit taking my bp meds. Sometimes that may be a good thing. I will pray that your health does improve.

    That's so scary about your blood pressure! We're so complex and not even doctors can fully understand the mystery of the tapestry called the human body. And, please be gentle with yourself...pretty please? Still praying for that good health to happen for you. emoticon
