Today I went back to the clinic to have my blood pressure checked. To begin with, I had to wait for quite a long time. Then I found that my blood pressure is higher than the last time, when I wasn't even taking the medication. For two weeks I've had headaches that I think are related to this medication. Ironically, this is the best one I've had to take, so I don't want to stop taking it, for more reasons than one. Now I'm worried, but since the results of the other tests were fine, I don't think there's any real danger. Still, this is so familiar. Every time I find out I have elevated blood pressure, I somehow feel ashamed. As if I've done something wrong. Which is absurd, but I keep feeling this way. I think I'll have to return to check the pressure again quite soon. The doctor will probably raise my dosage. That's all. But I can't help worrying. :(
