I was just at the doctors and I am a very squeamish person! The Doctor herself doesn't bother me, but I hate anything to do with the pulse...makes me feel weak...I'm a bit phobic, I guess, but anyhow, my blood pressure read as 130/80....I could even feel myself getting all stressed out by the thought of the metal on my pulse. This may seem weird but I can't even touch my own pulse!? LOL!
I need valium for a blood test and at 38, have only had three in my life, as I get almost hysterical when I am told I need one!
One was for my green card and I asked the doctor in advance if I could have a few drinks to calm me...he laughed and said yes!
I'm off point, but am just wondering if 130/80 in a heightened state of squeamish stress is anything to worry about?? I am a very fit, quite lean and athletic person who eats almost idyllically well! my weight is great, I am otherwise super healthy and pretty happy overall with a fairly low stress life.
