This may seem like a little thing to many, but it is significant to me. Several months ago I knew something was wrong. I checked my blood pressure which had always been on the low side – but I had been under an enormous amount of stress and loss (my mom died and then one of my staff people died just a couple of months later). Anyway, when I checked it, it was very high. It scared me and I got my butt into the doctor his next working day (this was on a weekend). And my mom died from a stroke and I learned she hadn’t been taking her blood pressure meds – silly woman!
Anyway, yesterday was a crap day and I knew it was going to come in high even being on BP meds. And I wasn’t wrong. It was 140/88. Not disastrous, but definitely merited watching. I put everything out of my mind last night, went to bed early, slept soundly all night and it was back to 109/77 this morning. I’m very thankful for that. But I definitely need to keep an eye on my stress level and just ignore all the b s around me.
I hope you are having a relaxing weekend – I have done nothing so far except take a shower and get dressed. Heading out to go grab lunch at Shigs in Pit – yummy! Then the grocery store (yuk, but we do like to eat!) and then home to mow (which is my time all to myself with nobody talking to me!). I do love my weekends (I need to retire).
