So I went to the doctor yesterday for my high blood pressure. I was seeing a kidney specialist because of my age and the thought is that there might be something else causing it, not just the stress in my life of raising 3 kids and having to be the human calendar for the entire family.

He told me if you stick 100 people with HBP in a room, 93 have it and they don't know why, scary. The other 7 have an underlying reason why and they try to fix that. After getting all my information he thinks I am one of the 93, but just to be sure he is going to run some test.

Guess what I will be doing in the near future. I will be catching all of my urine for a 24 hour period. I have to get all of it not even 1 drop can be missed or the test will not be accurate. So next week I will have to be like "Oh sorry I can't leave the house today I have to catch all of my pee in an orange jug” Not only that I have to keep to cold. Hope the kids don't mistake it for some new drink. I am so looking forward to this.

After that I have to wear a Blood Pressure cuff for 24 hours and it will take my BP every 30 mins. Boy don't I live doctors. All of this just to tell me that they are not sure why I have HBP.

I can’t complain it could be worse.
