Two days ago my head started hurting like crazy. It was so bad it zapped the life right out of me. I neglected to listen to what my body was saying to me because I was busy caring for my dad and my mother (both who were recently released from the hospital). Well, when I went to my parent's house to monitor their blood pressure, I decided to check mine. It was 180/120! I checked again 173/118, I couldn't believe it. I called my doctor and she said go to the E.R. immediately.
They got my blood pressure down and sent me home on anti-hypertensive which I've being trying to stay off of by controling my diet and losing weight. I failed at that. But I am hoping that I can get off of them really soon.
