hot blooded...i mean high blood pressure

i am supposed to take my blood pressure 10 times in the next several days. i went in for a check-up and it was borderline high so my doctor gave me a machine to use at home this week. i keep forgetting to use it during my quiet moments. i need to use it when i am still and quiet, and there haven't been many of those moments since friday when i received the machine. even now...it is sunday morning, and i have been running around like a madwoman trying to get stuff done. i thought about that machine and how i should have used it when i first got up. i just took my blood pressure, and i refuse to write that number down. my doctor said to use it when i am happy and calm. that doesn't describe my mood. blogging makes me happy and calm so i am trying to get to a place where i can use the machine and feel good about what it says. i need a calm quiet spirit. i need to meditate. think nice peaceful thoughts. ahhhh....stillness...

124/89 that's better. still not a great diastolic number, but better.

I am shaking my head! YOU need to slow down. You need to write all the numbers down. I bet it was higher than yesterday!!

The EMT in me, is saying this... in all seriousness. High BP is no (cuss word) joke... Take care of yourself today.

So..put the machine next to your computer...and take it whenever you 'blog'...which means you need to blog more!! Hope things get back to normal soon.
