  • Or if like a doctor I saw took my blood pressure commented that it was really high and that I’d never had high blood pressure before, gave me a prescription for blood pressure tablets didn’t ask me to come back to keep a check and then suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage around a month or so later, if I had been kept an eye on would this have been prevented? Just lucky to be alive!
