Regarding doctors...

So today happened to be our quarterly blood drive at work and I figured, "ah what the heck," and let the vampires take some juice. Of course anyone who has given blood before knows that they take your vitals first; temp, pulse, B/P...

My b/p reading was 122/74; much-improved over yesterday's 146/80-after-a-148/xx at the doc's office yesterday. Not bad considering where I was and everything going on ;)

I intended to call it in today to inform my doc about my check but time ran away from me today; so it's on the to-do list for tomorrow. Maybe now she'll believe me that's it's STRESS.. seriously if she'd been pushing anti-anxiety meds I might have taken her up ;)  Oy.
