Unfortunately, they forgot to tell me to fast beforehand, so I have to go back Monday for the actual blood letting. However, i did pee into a cup, and the doc checked the basics, finally commenting on my high blood pressure. He reassured me it could be due to general level of excitement about being at the doctors. I wanted to tell him i find Slayer blast beats exciting, not peeing into a cup which would in turn be examined by a very friendly Jewish doctor.
But now I'm worried. I am 22. I do not want to have high blood pressure, especially considering my general good diet and fitness.
I'm aware that, given the potential life threatening things that could happen to me, a probably wrong reading of high blood pressure doesn't really rate. But, hell, I figure i have my old age to undergo all these problems so that, at a ripe old age, i can turn to my son or daughter, with a gleam in my eye and say:
"You know what? I just pissed myself. You deal with it!"
