A Day of Struggle

Sunday, September 15, 2013

My blood pressure has been consistently high for a couple of weeks now even with the maxed out dosages. I see the doctor on Tuesday. I feel so worn out. I have been trying to push through but it is so difficult. The exhaustion and light headedness and vision issues are just eroding my resolve. If I can just push through to get to the other side of this.

Trying to remind myself that I can't do anything in my own power. Only through Jesus can I do anything. I will lean on Him.

Now is not a time to feel sorry for myself. Now is the time to pick myself up, brush myself off and keep moving. emoticon

    Now is the time to make sure your doctor understands how you are struggling and make the necessary changes to get a handle on what's ailing you. Please be sure he's listening and hears what you are saying emoticon I'm praying for answers and changes with your blood pressure issues emoticon emoticon

    It sounds like your doing well...I'm guessing it will take time...all these veggie diets from Engine 2, eat to live, ect they do it for 6 weeks or so cause it does take time to work.

We have been spending years eating unhealthy so we can't expect to get better over night.

    Thank you ladies. Your encouragement means a lot. I am not eating ANY animal products. My mainstay cookbooks right now are Engine 2, China Study Cookbook, Forks Over Knives Cookbook and McDougall. This means I am not adding any other fats either. But it has only been that disciplined for a week at this point. That is why I am hoping with time I will see changes.

    sorry your not feeling well.

Just keep eating your fruits and veggies, drink plenty of water and try to do some light exercise. I'm guessing these will help toward getting your blood pressure down.

How close are you following Eat to live? Are you eating any animal produce?

    Your meds should be helping but the doctor may switch you to something else. Hope it all gets better. HUGS!
