Fargen Bloodpressure

I got a cuff at CVS so I could take my pressure at home. I figured it was still in the 90-range. Last night it was back up at like 150/110. Not good. This morning was 130/95... I dunno. I can feel when it's getting high now I think.. or maybe I am delusional more than usual... but I feel like my temples get achy and can feel the pressure rising. Not fun at all.

I think things are going to change soon. The universe is giving me a kick in the ass. I have been really worried about making my son switch schools... but my wife is going to take him out of his school anyway. At least if I force things to change I might be able to do something to keep him with his friends.. or maybe that is a lost cause... perhaps some adversity will be good for him? I dunno. It's all just a fucking mess and not doing anything is not helping.

I have my doctors appointment Sept 19th... so after that I will get some mental and legal advice and see how to proceed.

You are impressing me kid. You are taking charge of your life. Well done.

No doctor but... the bod goes through rhythms, cycles, and events. Think long haul. One reading doesn't spell much.

yeah I remain concerned as it was the huge 180/140 or something.. and it got down to like 130/90... but now is either like 140/110 or 130/95.. or something in the high hypertension area.. which should not be surprising.. but could be deadly.

Well, take it with the cuff/arm in a relaxed position near the level of your heart.

The 180 would be an ongoing concern. But, you'll be seeing the doctor shortly. I think you are on 5 mg. I take 20. You might ask the Nurse Practitioner if doubling up might not be advantageous. Pretty sure nothings like to pop in a couple of weeks. Untreated is the major problem over time.
