last thursday i was diagnosed with
High-Blood Pressure.

i didnt think it was possible for an active
person as myself to ever have this condition.
i initially went to the clinic thinking that i could have an MC
coz i was having fever and a really bad flu.

i came out as some who is suffering from
Hypertension and Pharyngitis.

Wat The HECK happened???!!?

wikipedia states that hypertension is:

Hypertension (HTN) or high blood pressure is a chronic medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is elevated. It is classified as either primary (essential) or secondary. About 90-95% of cases are termed "primary hypertension", which refers to high blood pressure for which no medical cause can be found. The remaining 5-10% of cases (Secondary hypertension) are caused by another conditions that affect the kidneys, arteries, heart, or endocrine system.

Persistent hypertension is one of the risk factors for strokes, heart attacks, heart failure and arterial aneurysm, and is a leading cause ofchronic kidney failure. Moderate elevation of arterial blood pressure leads to shortened life expectancy. Both dietary and lifestyle changes as well as medicines can improve blood pressure control and decrease the risk of associated health complications.

no more black burger and chilly crabs for me.
