l have watched my BP slowly get worse over the last 5 to 6 years and now at 37yrs old i checked it,and it was 177/118 with 123 bpm. I know I have got to go to the dr., that goes without saying. But without insurance how am i suppose to pay for all the test and bloodwork I'll need to get done for proper diagnosis and treatment. all dr. offices want so much $ up front for uninsured patients and i dont have it. am i supposed to just let a treatable disease kill me and leave my 3 children w/o a mama because i can't afford insurance?
