Last time I went to the Emergency room for my stomach pains, the nurse noted that my blood pressure was high. Yet no one really seemed concerned about it cause I was in pain. So naturally, I didn’t worry about it.
So today, out of curiosity I checked my blood pressure at one of the the pharmacy blood pressure machines. The first time it was 136/101. A little high. But nothing I really worried about. I mentioned it to my mom (who I was with) and she insisted I do it again. The second time it was 140/151. That is SUPER high. She than proceeded with “…you need to go to the doctor”. So I started to freak out.
As we were leaving she felt as though she needed to mention that high blood pressure is a silent killer. Naturally, I started to freak out more. I have issues about death in general. So this was not helping.
I have never had health issues really before. Never spent over night in the hospital. Nothing. And now, I am showing symptoms for something that could not even be serious, it can be life changing. I don’t even know how to handle this. I am not prepared…
I am scared. I will admit.
But hopefully I can see me family doctor next week and do some investigating.
I am also worried that my doctor might think it is nothing. Especially considering when it comes to my stomach, he mainly has told me that all I should do is “loose weight” and “not be stressed”…. Even though I have lost A LOT of weight (about 60 lbs over all) and whenever I have a stomach attack. I am pretty calm and collected.
I am scared guys.
I really am.
