I failed my physical

Egads! I went for my physical yesterday and I had really high blood pressure! 135/90!!! Arg. I have to go back next week to get measured again, to rule out a fluke. In the meantime I’m cutting back on the caffeine (I might have had way too much coffee just before I went) in hopes that that is all it is. If it’s not the caffeine then I can only imagine it is either stress or unlucky genetics. I rarely drink any alcohol, don’t smoke, eat a healthy low-sodium diet, and get a light amount of regular exercise. I can’t imagine why my BP is so darned high! I was up all night fretting about it — and all that fretting is probably just raising my BP. D’oh!
