BP Update so-so

Went to the doctor for the third time in a week this morning to check up on how the second med is working on my blood pressure and I’m down to 154/109. They immediately wante to stack a third med on me but for this time, I refused, saying I wasn’t comfortable with how fast they were stacking meds on me and that they weren’t giving the two I was on a chance to properly establish. Even on the patient information with the mess, they advise true results will take 2 to 3 weeks to be seen. It’s only been seven days and I’m already down 66 points systolic and 21 points diastolic. They made me sign a death waiver and told me to come back Friday 😦

My crazy boyfriend does do his best to keep my stress down though 😉
