The Silent Killer

Clipped from

High Blood Pressure

The Silent Killer

What happens when you get up one morning and your legs are so wobbly that you cannot walk without feeling like you are going to fall because your sense of balance is off? Have you ever wondered why you seem to have a headache every single day? Have you ever wondered why your heart seems to beat faster than normal? Have you ever thought that you would have to go to the hospital and be hooked up to a heart monitor machine and your blood pressure read 214/114? Well, neither did I until two months ago.

I have never understood all of the things I have read or seen on the television about High Blood Pressure being the silent killer. Today I understand from firsthand experience. From my understanding there really are no early symptoms. In some cases it is known as Heredity Hypertension. I was told that no matter I had tried to do or what I planned to do that it was going to happen to me that it was just a matter of time! My first thought when I was told this was, How dare you say that to me what because I turned fifty one that automatically meant I was be diagnosed with High blood Pressure? It was no different than when I turned forty and went to the eye-doctor and he told me I would have to wear trifocals after he asked me how old I was!!
