My Body Hates Me.

Went to the doctor for a first time in a while today.
Nothing specific, just a general check-up, and getting reacquainted with my old doctor that I'd really liked back when I used to have Group Health. Turns out, it's been almost 10 years since I saw her (we were both in our 30s then!), but it was nice to talk with a familiar face, who had obviously looked at my chart and refreshed her memory.

The bad thing is that for whatever reason, my blood pressure has decided to be high again. I had a bout of slightly higher blood pressure a couple years ago, but we thought it was tied in with a nasty sinus infection.

Today? 191/108. I walked out with medication and instructions to acquire a sphygmomanometer. Oh, and diet, exercise, decreased sodium.

It's odd, because I'm actually probably more relaxed than I have been in years. I love my job, I love my house, I love my husband. Life is good.

Stupid blood pressure.
