Last Scare and Push Needed!
Blood Pressure: 156/82
Upper Arm: 22
Those are the digits; here's the situation. Two days ago I woke up ran upstairs for what I thought was a dog emergency felt instantly extremely tired. Tried to make a phone call and it didn't work so I tried to email a friend to call phone company, my typing was all sporadic and confused and when I tried to use the phone again it worked but as I tried to talk I was experiencing what they call Aphasia, loss of speech control. Last all of maybe 5 minutes. I found out later I experienced what they call a TIA Transient Ischemic Attack. Sometimes it's referred to as a mini-stroke. It was the most frightening upsetting day of my life. My blood pressure was off the charts for the past two days
I started an aspirin regiment to help thin the platelets and I’m going to try taking some herbal blood pressure remedies to avoid traditional medicine unless I can't get my blood pressure to consistently stay down. I give myself a month to change things around super fast or I'm checking in to a hospital.
Last week I started taking One A Day Women's formula to help regulate my periods, which before last week started coming out extremely heavy with horrendously huge chunks of I assume cervical lining.
Lot of stressors for me. Haven't been feeling well. I still want to take it easy today and I probably will. I've got 2 and a half more months before the end of the year and I will not go into the next year this way I will not go into November this way either!
I'm drinking my water and trying to remember the absolute pain and work I've been putting on my heart, liver, kidneys, and lungs... not to mention my bones and skin. How could someone I thought was so good treat anyone this way? What was I thinking? Certainly not about me. This is one tragedy I can do something about.
