Not the best day today, since a regular visit to my GP revealed that my blood pressure is hovering around the batshit side of crazy. Of course this new knowledge has not done me any favours in the ‘reducing stress’ department.
The initial measurement was taken this morning in my doctor’s office, and I assumed then it had to be a temporary aberration, but a reading I just did at home (12 hours later) shows pretty much the same result. If it’s still like this tomorrow I’m heading back to the medical center to ask for something to bring it down.
This scares the crap out of me, but I post it here because getting it off my chest might help me to not obsess about it as I try to sleep tonight.
UPDATE: 24 hours later and I’m getting readings approaching 150/100 (My peak reading yesterday was 173/127). Hoping to see it fall further.
