Feeling bad and the numbers show it

  Last night I felt so bad that I went to bed.  I felt like I was going to faint at any time.  I knew something was wrong.  Not a normal feeling for me.
  This morning I checked my blood sugar and took my blood pressure.

My weight is not bad.  It is 234 pounds.  I wish it was a lot less.  But it has been up to 245 in the past.
My blood sugar is 163. That is bad for me. My blood sugar has been doing very well.  I get numbers of right around 110 all the time.  But Darlene is buying a lot of junk food.  If I say my blood sugar is high she says oh that is not bad.  She will say just take an extra med for it.
We have ice cream here and I been eating some of it.  I know I should not.

My blood pressure is now.  My doctor might like the numbers  117/56 but that is too low for me.  When I get a number like that it is too low for me.

HIGH blood pressure

  If I do almost anything my blood pressure will shoot up.  If I bend over to put on my shoes or if I have to try and pull on socks over my swollen feet my blood pressure goes up.
  I took a heavy item out to the trash tonight.  For the first time, I took my blood pressure when I got back to the apartment.  I knew it was high.  I can tell.  But this time I took my BP.  It was 222 over 98.  The heart rate of 89.

I took my BP about 30 minutes later and it was 172/83.

Normal BP for me runs;  162/76, 147/68, 163/79, 145/66 and that is about normal for.
