I do not have a problem with high blood pressure. I HAVE high blood pressure.
The dr clarified that for me today.
And then she prescribed me two medications which I will need to take daily for…hmm…the rest of my life, probably.
Side effects of said medications: frequent urination and a dry cough. Which means a lifetime of Depends and Ricola.
Oh, I kid.
I’m feeling very strange about this. On one hand I feel frustrated and betrayed by my body. I’m so young! On the other hand I think I’ve never had a better reason to finally take care of myself. There’s been some re-evaluation going on today, some letting go, some setting of goals. And that’s a GOOD thing.
Next on my list of health-related concerns to tackle: getting my first mammogram. I just hope my dry cough doesn’t kick up right then.
