Great – just a few days before Christmas and more than a week into the New Year and I am not feeling well. Last week I was complaining of headaches, nausea, and heart palpitations. Had a quick visit to the doctor two days ago and found out that I have a slight high blood pressure. Is it too much salt in my meal? Caffeine, cholesterol? Or I probably have the “white coat syndrome”, you know, being nervous around doctors and causes my BP to go up? Whatever.
The doctor said slight, but still it worries me. For one, my health insurance has just expired and getting a good insurance like the NC Blue Cross Blue Shield my friend has in the US is simply unaffordable if it’s not covered by your employer.
What a time to get sick, eh! At my age, health stuff like this worries me a lot. Perhaps I worry too much. Sometimes seeing the doctor makes it worse because I get all mental.
