So Doctors Do Give Out Good News!

So, I think it's fair to say that I don't relish visits to any type of medical person these days. In the last year or so I don't think any of the checkups have left me feeling overly positive, so it was with some apprehension that I took myself off to my GP's yesterday morning for a review of my BP meds.

With everything going on this month, I was not expecting my BP to be behaving (ask Ally Andbag how much I was whinging at the weeknd over my glass of wine that this could be the last wine I ever drank if they put me on more meds!).

So, I nearly collapsed on the floor when I had a fairly normal reading: 120/80! OK, not out of the woods yet (I need it lower than the average person at 120/70 to protect the stent allegedly) but a marked improvement on last month's 148/93! Hopefully that means that these meds are working, but I'm also wondering if a certain bout of healthy eating and getting my shimmy on at the local belly dancing class could be helping?!
