I spoke to my doctor yesterday and he says he may need to treat my blood pressure, even though it is only marginally over what it should be. My sister has high blood pressure also and is on Ramapril which she says is very good and to mention it to him. She seems to think I will only need to be on about 5mg of it daily and meantime I have taken my diet and exercise routine completely in hand and come off 90% fattening and sweet foodstuffs, and gone over to decaff coffee, and its been a "lifestyle change" rather than just a "diet".
Actually I am quite proud of how I have managed to stick rigidly to it all for nearly a month now without being tempted much off it, although there were some tough moments and "meltdowns" which my sister got me over and my dear nephew was also intrumental, and the lifestyle change already feels like an old friend.
A few weeks ago it came in at 200 over 120 and now is down to a much less worrying 154 ish over 80 to 100, so there is less of a problem for the doctor to treat now I've taken myself in hand.
I'm also a schizphrenic and anti psychotic drugs although necessary have piled on the weight over the years with cravings and slowing of metabolic rate hand in hand demons but I am now seeing about going on a drug that is said to cause actual shedloads of weight loss in many clients who go onto it, so I will be over the moon if my Consultant approves and gives it the go ahead, as it all helps.
