Yesterday I went to the doctor. While they were going about their usual thing, weight, temp, blood pressure, they discovered something scary. Now, I'm a young woman but apparently stress has done a number on me and what they found scared them enough to keep me at the doctor for two and a half hours and a handful of meds.
This morning at five am., I was on the phone to 911. The hospital kept me for over six hours running tests because my stress/anxiety symptoms and ridiculous blood pressure (218/148 175/110 and all over the place) worried them into thinking I was having a heart attack. I didn't and my heart is perfectly fine. But folks, stress will kill you and I had a wake up call today that was completely sobering. I'm young. I have two little girls. This kind of thing is supposed to happen to the elderly or the middle-elderly, not to me. Not at my age.
If you have any concerns about your health, please take care of you. And thank you for your patience as I recover. I'll be back next week. Count on it.
