Most of my life, my blood pressure numbers have been on the very low side. I believe this must be hereditary, since Daddy's BP was low until he was in his 60's, and my daughter's runs low too.
However, in the last five or six years, my numbers have been creeping up. Oh, not enough to worry my doctor, but often the top number was over 140; sometimes near 150. I know this happens as we age, so I wasn't really concerned. I'd just keep checking once a week or so, when Cliff checked his. I figured if it got too high, I'd have to go on pills of some kind.
(On a side note, Cliff's meds keep his blood pressure steady as a rock; it's always around 125/70.)
Here's the funny thing: Since we've moved, my top number has been consistently around 125. I'm wondering if this is just a fluke, or if I'm that much more satisfied and relaxed, living back here with a view of the pasture. I'll let you know if those numbers change.
