So yesterday I visited my doctor for a checkup. I went through all the stuff—height, weight. Then I had my blood pressure taken.
“You’re high,” she said.
“Do you usually have high blood pressure?”
“Well, you’re 151/90. That’s high.”
I was befuddled. I mean, I exercise at least four days a week. I’m a relatively healthy eater. I don’t smoke and I never drink alcohol. My life as a book writer isn’t nearly as stressful as your doctors and lawyers and contractors.
So, what’s changed from last year?
What could cause such a thing?
