Feeling Much Better Today
I started my blood pressure meds yesterday evening. I’m happy to say it’s now totally under control. I don’t like the way it makes me feel, but I’m told that wears off after awhile. Either way I know the alternative of not taking it is much worse than taking it. I just hated adding one more medication to my already long list.
Other than being woken up early by my morning medicine alarm I slept almost 11 hours. I’m so happy to not have the headache I had when I went to bed last night. I feel winded and my nerves are still a little shaky. But, I believe my body just needs a little more time to settle down and recover. I am someone who always listens and obeys any doctor’s orders.
Overall, it was just another wake up call where God put me in the right place at the right time. At the time my blood pressure hiked I did have a lot on my mind. You can only live in great pain and under great pressure but so long. It was all just tackling me at once and I’m so glad God has eased much of my anxiety. However, I’m still in the process of making major life adjustments in an effort towards hopefully discovering a much healthier me. I firmly believe that you must always be seeking to be healthy before you try to be helpful to others.
“Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
