Seven weeks of regular testing settles it. I have hypertension. Over the last couple of years or so I would throw out an uncharacteristically high reading. But for the most part I stayed in the safe, healthy range.
It looks like my genes have finally caught up with me. My mom had to take medication to control her blood pressure as long as I could remember. And my dad needed to take it for a time later in life. Anyway, I will continue with the regular screenings until after my upcoming trip when I see the doctor again. I'm sure I'll get a prescription for it. It's not a hard thing to treat but feel free to wish me luck anyway. :/
