This is a picture of me with a plate of goodie at the tearoom. It was tres elegant!! And so...much food, we had to take half of it home.
Not feeling well today at all!!! I am in one of those moods where I am on the verge of tears and my mind keeps focussing on the negative and my tummy is in knots. I went to my new doctor yesterday. He is very nice and so...thorough! My appointment was for 2:40 and I did not get home until 5:15!!!!! he takes his time and if he is running behind which he was by six patients before me that had appointments starting at 1:00. Anyway, we discussed my dizzy spells and he took my blood pressure. I damn near fainted it was 170/115!!! I have never in my life had high blood pressure and this is hypertension stage 2. He took it three times and one of those times he had me standing. He asked if I had a blood pressure machine at home and I told him no. long story short...I bought a really good one, just like his, the pharmacist explained and demonstrated how to use it. I must take and record my pressure three times a day for a week. I go back to see him next Wednesday. He also added some items to my blood work list from my pdoc. And he has ordered an EKG just to check on my heart. Anyway, I am really...........stressed about this turn of events and I am scared to death that I will stroke out or have a fatal heart attack. I know, I am looking for trouble but that is how my mind works I just worry at a problem like a dog with a bone. I have seen first hand what a stroke can do and I don’t want to be there. The more I write about it the more upset I am becoming. So I am going to stop now. Keep me in your prayers. Debbie
