Healthcare has not been a priority for my people. I was never taught how to eat healthy or exercise. I noticed that my headaches were getting more frequent and stronger. When they became unbearable I finally went to see a doctor. The only thing they found was that I had extremely high blood pressure.
He said I could have a stroke or a heart attack if I didn’t lower it. I was floored I didn’t anything was wrong with me, other than stress. I started taking medication but when I went back to the doctor there was no change. He gave me a very strong warning. Two days later I had a heart attack that could have been avoided. I should have listened earlier, why didn’t I?
