I had a theory that my high blood pressure was due to stress from my now-former job, and that it would come down when I left the job and took some time to relax.

I was waiting for a prescription in CVS this afternoon, so I tried the machine there. And got a reading ten points higher on both numbers than the worst I'd had in a doctor's office before they started treating it.

Given the number of cardiac-related incidents in my social circles of late, I'll be making that appointment to see a new doctor sooner rather than later.
