Its Monday morning and I feel so yuck!
I have felt terribly anxious all weekend, silly little things have sent my crazy.
Whilst watching TV last night I sensed I was agitated so I checked my blood pressure which was probably a bad move as it was high 175/83….. This reading obviously made me extra anxious and when I went to bed it felt like my heart was going to pound out of my chest. I was also feeling dizzy whilst lying down. I got up and re checked it again and it was 188/80
I was getting myself in such a panic I actually thought about going to the hospital I was convinced I was going to have a heart attack or stroke. I contemplated writing my daughter a letter giving her all my bank passwords and telling her what she needed to do if the worst happened. How darn crazy is that?
I returned to bed and tried to convince myself it was the anxiety that was causing the high BP so 30 minutes later I rechecked it and thankfully it had dropped to 154/75 still high but least it was dropping.
I managed 4 hours of sleep. The lack of sleep is stressing me out as I was a 9 hour a night girl until these last few months. I even purchased a ladycare magnet on Saturday, i am willing to try anything
I checked my BP again this morning and it was 122/70 which obviously is great.
I have booked into see the Dr tomorrow this BP thing worries me.
Just wanted to get it all off my chest & share how i feel, I am sure there are plenty of you going through the same.
Hope everyone else has had a fab weekend
