Strength through joy
My numbers were higher than that.So when you go for the DOT physical and your BP is over 140/90, what do they do? Just give you a 6 month card? I have white coat syndrome. After watching my father pass slowly in a hospital over months I have a hard time going to see a doctor for some reason. My BP will be elevated even though I don’t have hypertension. Luckily my doctor is understanding and gives me time to calm down and try more than one test on my blood pressure.
The doctor took the first reading as I was sitting in the exam room,
then made me go sit in the waiting room for 15 minutes and I was still too high,
then go lay down on the floor of the waiting room for another 30 minutes, still too high.
Imagine how the other patients felt seeing a UPS Driver in uniform laying on the waiting room floor.
