Just Weird

"Normal" bloodpressure is 120/80. You'd think that when bloodpressure elevates, both numbers go up. Because thats what normally happens.

So. I find it a little disturbing that mine is going up and down ... simultaneously. For example, 143/66.

People with explanations and/or speculations should comment excessively!

Just my weird moment for the day. Life is definitely getting weird and weirder. Bwahahahahaha.


the top number (systolic) is the pressure your heart has to pump against to get blood OUT of your heart and INTO the vessles in the periphery. the bottom numer (diastolic) is the pressure inside the heart that the blood has to work against to fill up the heart again. most people with "high blood pressure" will have a systolic pressure (one example: because of clogging of the arteries with plaque). And example of high diastolic pressure would be someone with heart failure who has fluid backing up into thier lungs. This comment is getting out of control. LOL. I would not worry about the low number. The 146 is not horrible either, but I am sure your docs are working to get it down. I will wrap this craziness up! Congrats on the birth of Cathy :)

Hehehehe. Your comment went into "Pending (aka Hell)".

Hundreds of spams forced me to let my husband change the format of my comments so that when you make a comment, it stays in "pending" until someone checks the list and clicks "approved".

Theoretically, the system was supposed to automatically approve commenters that are cleared by the site the first time.

Bwahahahaha. NO, it won't work that way. It won't even automatically approve MY comments.

But I appreciate the input on the blood-pressure. It makes me feel better!
