Guesss I'd Better Be Smart About This

I have felt bad all day, very tired with a bit of a headache. And although I take anti-anxiety medication, I have been fighting off panic attacks all day as well. Felt like my blood pressure was high, so while I was out this afternoon I checked it at one of those self-check-thingys at Kroger. Yep. High. Very, VERY high. Hmm. Wonder what has spiked it?

I'll check it again tomorrow, and then a couple times a week for a few weeks.  If it goes back to normal, fine. If it stays high, even a little high, I guess I'm going to have to buck up and go to the doctor about it. I REALLY don't want to have high blood pressure or go on medication for it. On the other hand, I REALLY don't want to have a stroke or a heart attackI REALLY need to lose some weight. 

On the bright side, I have a sixteen year old daughter here who would just LOVE to take daily walks with her old mom and do some cardio workouts with her.  Yep. Guess I'd better be smart about this.
