Quilting and Blood Pressure

So, OK, the doc says my blood pressure seems to be "elevated". It's been that way for quite some time. She's suggested I may have "white coat syndrome", but in all honesty, after all the medical adventures I've had... ...well I told her "Look, Linda, you're just not that scary!" But she's thinking that we need to get a handle on this, so today I picked up her clinic's portable BP monitor - one they loan out to patients. I'm to keep it for a week and take my BP at points throughout my day, and record the results. Then I'll go back and have a chat with Linda. -sigh- I REALLY don't want to end up taking another medication. My quilting hoop kicked cancer's butt two years ago. Can it stomp out high blood pressure? Hm...
