There are far too many confounding variable that seem to be contributing to the whole "high blood pressure" situation I am now finding myself in. Let's make ourselves a tiny list of all of the possible contributing things.
  1. Estrogen in the birth control. They would not have written me a prescription had I had a blood pressure problem a year or so ago.
  2. Stress. School has sucked for the last 2 semester forcing me to feel extremely overwhelmed. The break-up with the ex and all of the drama revolving around him also contributed to stress.
  3. High sodium diet. Not just fast food and take out, but the cup o' noodles/easy mac diet for quick meals
  4. Weight gain. Yes. I've gained a significant amount of weight for multiple reasons. See #3 as well as eating out for convenience. Not only that, when everything else was sucking pretty hardcore, candy, sugar, soda and all things bad for you made me feel better. Yes, food was my therapy.
  5. Did I mention stress? Oh yeah, I did. Damn. How about I regularly take NSAID (Aleve, and Naproxem Sodium) for headaches.
  6. Oh yes, and I'm getting old.
Put it all together, and you get the mess that I am. I'm hoping that I can bring this back down to semi-normal rather than "almost sent you to the ER."

*double sigh*

I'm definitely not happy.
