This morning I had a six-month blood pressure check up with my family physician. I was dreading this appointment because I had not lost the weight I thought I should before today. Anyway, once the nurse began taking my vital signs, she mentioned my blood pressure was low. I then informed her that I get dizzy with bending over or standing from crouching, and so she checked my blood pressure from sitting and then standing. When the doctor came in, he checked me over and drew some blood work to make sure no other process is causing my BP to be low, and he is 99% sure that next week I can come off my blood pressure medication! YAY!!!!!! 30 pounds of weight loss past several months has led to this!
