Re: Why Check It So Often???
I have to agree with you, bp meds are the worst i've taken also. I've never had cancer so i can't speak on those meds. When i was told i had diabetes, i thought my life was over. I was able to pull it together and go on with my life. I was very active in my community and held a full time(stressful, customer service supvsr) job.
I had licked the diabetes. Then with the twist of fate, i went to a free clinic and a toxic nurse practioner changed my bp meds and put me on 5 different meds at one time. That's when my problems began. I knew nothing about side effects, but by time i purchased this computer and looked up my meds, 4 or 5 yrs had already passed and my body was messed up. Now i have heart problems, high cholesterol, thyroid problems and liver problems. I had none of these problems before. So i agree with you, bp meds sucks, and i still have hbp 140-180/72-86. But Axe, i still take some of the blame, bcuz i am usually on top of things and usually stayed in control.. Life still is great (compared to the alternative) and im still striving to get healthy. I ccan't sweat the small stuff.
