Not For The Rest Of My Life

I would’ve never thought I would have to take medication for HBP. I detested it. I’m a natural person. No pain pills, I juice, I don’t eat beef or pork, I practice mindfulness, I’m a healthy weight and I move a lot. When I was first prescribed the medication I didn’t take it. I thought I could still do my natural stuff, after all it had worked up to this point, right? However, with the severe amount of stress and pressure I was under caring for my brother who is in a vegetative state, trying to run several business, mother 2 children and not nearly pass out from over exertion, I had to do something. My body had a different message than my mind. It felt what I was denying was there. I realized I need to take this medication to get my HBP under control first, then I can ween myself off of it. It’s not a life sentence. Some days are better than others. Sometimes I go hard in public and suffer as a result in secret. I have to listen to my body. I am oftentimes just standing still and the ground feels like it’s moving from underneath me. This medication is not for the rest of my life because I’m fixing the cause instead of just treating the symptom. Listen to your body and your body will listen to you in time. #GoConfidently
