It began with a headache.
The headache continued, which made me wonder as I had never experienced continuous heavy headache before.
It culminated in the following words by our family doctor:
“Nauval, you are reaching to hyper-tension level. Your blood pressure is now 140/90.”
There I was, lying down, stunned and lost for words. Deep down I screamed, “It’s always been 100 and not more!”
The doctor, who called me on nickname basis, who has been with me since I was born, further said in a matter-of-fact manner:
“It’s getting common now for people of your age.”
To me, that is a welcome sign to “hello, you are old now. Take care.”
