Too Big For My Britches

Monday, March 22, 2010

Okay, so a week and a half ago Thursday I ran out of my High Blood Pressure meds. I know I should have immediately called the doctor for my refill, but oh, no, not me. I figured I'd lost 35 pounds, I probably didn't need them anymore. So I made an appointment for last Friday, meaning that I would have been off of them for over a week. I thought I would walk in and my doc would say, hey wow, you are cured, lets get rid of those silly ole pills. It didn't QUITE work out that way. More like hmm, your bp is 145 over 100! Have you been taking your pills? So needless to say they are now refilled. SIGH! I know I didn't get hbp over night, so no it's not going to go away overnight, but one can dream.

On a good note, I am no longer morbidly obese, I'm just obese. I was also anemic last time, but am now on the low side of normal. So I'm at least moving in the right direction.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, I know I did!

    I've been on high blood pressure meds since the birth of my son (6 years ago). I thought it would be a short term thing, and kept asking when I could get off them. But now, finally, I hope to be down enough at my next visit in June to get off of them for good! It's not that it's that hard to take the pills, it's more of a pride thing... Good luck, and congrats on the wonderful weight loss!!
