I need to take a very drastic move in terms of the food I eat. I love to eat junk foods, salty food and even prepare food with a lot of seasoning. I also drink lots of coke. Now, it’s time to throw out the unhealthy food and prepare the ones that will aid me in my quest of lowering my blood pressure. I am going to switch to pineapple and carrot juice. I am a picky eater so this would be a great challenge for me. But as I told my husband, my motivation is knowing that doing this would somehow help me take care of them properly and hope that God would see my efforts and let me grow old with them. . This is my life. My lupus life.
I wanted to look for a tea that could lower my blood pressure. A couple of days ago when we went to the mall, I stumble upon a stall that sells a lot of herbal supplement. The lady with of course the agenda of selling her products have told me about the tea that an old lady bought from her and have drastically lowered her bp. I wanted to try that tea but unfortunately the lady does not have stock. Now, I am searching for other distributor near our area but seems they have not posted anything in the web. I even tried looking into the online auction but found none. Maybe, it’s time I visit the mall again. And try to order the tea.
My mission for this week is to see a significant decrease in my blood pressure. My rheumatologist already told me that I am on good condition. My kidneys are okay as long as we take care of them and monitor my urine. Our main problem right now is the steady high BP. I am already on 10mg Norvasc and 75 mg of Catapres and he is hoping that the next time I visit him (which is next week), the medicine already lowered my BP. He also told me to watch what I eat. Say no to salt and start grilling. When frying used only a small amount of oil. Now I am searching the world wide web for tips on how to naturally lower my blood pressure. What fruits and veggies to eat. Even food supplement that can help. I need to lower it asap.
When I was in my darkest moment battling with LUPUS, books have been one of my weapon to continue my journey and fight back. I relay on two types of book : inspirational and health. I got a lot of wisdom from inspirational book. It gives me hope knowing that I am not alone in my struggle. And then through health books I learned a lot about my disease that helps with my acceptance and how to deal with LUPUS. Until today, I used books to continue the fight. Unfortunately, it seems that I have read all the books in the bookstore. So now, I have to find some source for my reading materials. It’s a blessing for me to discover about the Book rental at booksfree.com. They have a lot of choices when it comes to book and you can just rent them without thinking about due dates and shipping. I think the concept of being able to Rent books is nice. Because it lets you read all your favorite book without the problem of space at home. Which is my big problem when I started collecting pocketbooks. Now, I don’t have to worry about it anymore through the rental. And what I like is that booksfree.com also has Audio books on cd. i think this is good for busy people who does not have time to read.
I really wanted to go to sleep but I can’t. I need to finished some jobs before I run out of time. I was supposed to do them today but we were out the whole day. Morning, we went to my doctor. Unfortunately, I got another memory lapse that I forgot my laboratory results. We had to go back to get them. But I am happy. Except for my blood pressure everything seems well. My doctor and I agreed to lower my weight and watch what I eat. He was telling me to GRILL! And I will do that. I am now a good girl! haha.
