Healthy body…healthy mind

My battle with anxiety is ongoing, I’m taking it one day at a time. Today I’m feeling slightly more anxious as my focus turns to my physical health. I have an appointment with a consultant in relation to my high blood pressure.

My GP has been checking it regularly since I started taking medication. I’ve completely cut out salt….as much as possible. I only ever added it to chips and to water when cooking rice or pasta. Thanks to my IBS chips are no longer on the menu and I now walk passed a fish and chip shop inhaling like one of the Bisto twins….only those of a certain age will remember those adverts on TV! My pasta or rice is now cooked in boiling water.

My healthy lifestyle is ongoing, though I’ve not been as focused as I could have been thanks to anxiety, so I’m getting back on track with that too. No more excuses and I need to get out walking. It helps my mental health too so its a win-win.

I’m not quite sure what to expect at this appointment, another thing that causes me to feel anxious. I’ve received my letter which gives some details so all that’s left for me to do is attend and see what happens…
