Just a little bit further.

It has been a while since I posted a blog here and really updated information. I always say my life is hectic and busy. Who's isn't these days? My daughter and I are involved in many activities and they are good ones, but it can feel so overwhelming at times. So I need a breather.
I have stepped away from my website business since I started working full time at my new job and we also moved to a new home. We have to get settled. I still haven't filed paperwork.
I got lazy.

Then the other day I was sitting at work and I was just wondering why am I like this. I never was this way before. My daughter got sick at school and I had to get her and take her to the doctor. While we were waiting I scheduled an appointment with my doctor so I can hopefully get refills on my prescriptions for my high blood pressure. Luckily they had a cancellation which caused me to go ahead and use that day instead of taking another day off from work. When I saw my doctor she yelled at me, well sort of. She raised her voice. I had been going two weeks without my medication. I know it is wrong and I shouldn't have done it. With starting a new job and time conflicting schedules I could not make an appointment. So I was blessed to have that opportunity. My blood pressure reading was at a really high level enough for a stroke.

Hypertension runs in my family. I remember when I was younger my mother started having a lot of trouble with hers when she was my age. I am not ashamed, I am 33 years old. I plan to stay educated and teach my daughter the importance of all this. I do not like it but I can overcome it.

I will be adopting new habits. Eating healthy and exercising is two habits I will be taking on. If I have to cut some activities out then so be it. It will save me in the long run. We all live crazy hectic lives. We are the ones who decide our schedules, so why not schedule time for ourselves?

I know I will.
