Two days ago I went to the ER after I felt prickling in my nape. True enough, my blood pressure shot up. It seemed that the post-partum hypertension I had been diagnosed with a month after giving birth was back.
On a regular check-up to my OB-GYNE, my bp was measured at 150/100. After that, I took maintenance meds for about two weeks, lay low on taking care of the baby at night and tried to get enough sleep but I didn’t change my diet rationalizing that I did not need to because I was still breastfeeding at that time.
This time, I really have to change my lifestyle for myself and most especially for my family. Thank you for this wake up call Lord. I know it isn’t too late yet. Bless my days. Help me that I may achieve a work-life balance and that I may live a life pleasing to you. Amen.
“In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.” Proverbs 3:6
I thank you Lord for my beautiful life. I pray that you make me your instrument. May all my works always be guided by your hand.
On a long weekend with my old housemates, I realized how I’ve missed blogging. I miss being alone with my thoughts. I realize now that writing calms me, it gives my day purpose. It allows me to do more than just juggle family and career and instead do things intentionally.
Thank you Lord for reminding me of this part of myself that I shouldn’t let go. Thank you for this gift. Amen.
