High blood pressure?

What the hell. I had my blood pressure taken this morning, as I was thinking I'd give some blood. Freaking 150 over 100. For those who may not be familiar with such things, that's in the hypertensive range. Needless to say, they wouldn't let me give blood.

The last time I had my blood pressure taken was when I was in Helena, and had started as a state employee, and they were doing health screens. Oct. 25, 2005 to be precise. Blood pressure then? 122/80. Everything else was average, except for my A/G ratio calculated at 1.6, but nothing to be concerned about.

Granted, this mornings reading might have just been a fluke, but it's slightly disconcerting. I'm going to have to take a reading next time I see one of the machines at a drug store or what not . . .
