Re: Anxiety over Blood Pressure

I totally understand what it's like to be obessed with BP numbers. My parents both had hypertension, my mom died of a stroke. they never could get her numbers real low. lost most of her vision also from the her BP. After my 3rd baby I was getting 191/110 and they couldnt lower it. finally it's within an acceptable range which is 130/80's. I used to have low BP also. So I think it's wise to watch your pressure but try not take it 20 times every day. morning and night is fine.
