Health Update

Since I started taking my maintenance meds seriously, my blood pressure didn’t shoot up again. I know because I monitor my BP everyday. I actually have a checklist posted on our wall so I don’t forget taking the meds and noting the BP. I should have gone back to my (new) Internist three weeks ago but didn’t find the time to do so. As I said, she’s only in TMC during Saturdays 11am-3pm. There’s another Internist that’s available everyday, she was actually the first doctor I consulted but I found better rapport with the new one, hence the switch.


I am also due to have another blood test this week to check if my cholesterol level has lowered. I’m gonna do that tomorrow, Thursday morning. That means I need to fast (no food, no water for at least 10hours!) starting tonight. Please pray that my cholesterol has improved so I won’t need to increase the medication dosage. Because as it is, Ane is already shelving out about p1500 monthly for my meds, and our medical reimbursement is already depleted.


Think positive! :D
