Ive seen this argument, but game companies have been monetizing in other ways. They are going to keep that nonsense in plus slap an additional $10 on the price. That shouldn’t be ok.

Agreed. Not to mention the all digital future, which eliminates manufacturing and the resources needed for that. When that's gone it's not like they're going to reduce the price of games.

Makes sense. Games have been very slow to raise in price in the US.

Blood Pressure 123/75 as of this morning!!!  But it was 161/84 on 6/27, so I'll need to see if it stays that low.  Cutting Alcohol + Sugar + Salt & adding yoga breathing + mild cardio seems to be helping.

Xbox talk: my most favorite additions to GamePass have been 'The Messenger' and 'Lonely Mountains Downhill' (added a long time ago).  'The Messenger' plays like a NES Ninja Gaiden / Castlevania III fever dream and it's been a ton of fun.  'Lonely Mountains Downhill' is a blast once you get the controls down.  

#sidebar Bring on the Monday Night Deals, my blood pressure is normal!  :D/

Best I would be able to do is the M version of my car. Forza doesn’t put the base models in their games for some reason.

Forza 7 is actually the closest I've ever gotten to having my car in a game. They have a 1971 Plymouth GTX and I have a 1973 Plymouth Satellite/Roadrunner.

Nobody's is really driving home the fact that you need to see a doctor. I'm 33 and both of those numbers are roughly DOUBLE mine. If your blood pressure was taken correctly and really is that high, then you could very easily have a stroke or heart attack within the next few days. Blood vessels are not designed for pressures that high.

 

100% of my focus would be on getting that lowered as quickly as possible if I were you. I'd go to the ER.

Went to the ER while I was at my in-laws in Central CA.  Got checked out and discharged- it dropped down to 

 

Blood pressure that high really needs to be medicated. Uncontrolled it can cause a lot of problems. I know the idea of taking a daily medication kind of sucks but once you start it’s not a big deal. I started taking Verapamil a couple years ago cause mine was over the line and causing severe migraines. Change the diet, exercise, and learn to manage stress and you can get off meds.

Yup- on it.

 

This, exactly this!!! Get yourself to the ER ASAP!!! My aunt was ended up in the hospital twice last year because her blood pressure went through the roof. Each time they had no idea what had caused it to skyrocket. She wasn't sick and takes medication for it, she also watches what she eats.

Yikes- thank you; I had no idea how bad High BLood Pressure could be

 

I 3rd this. Get to a hospital quick. High BP runs in my father's side of the family. I've been on meds since my early 20s thanks to a heart surgery that went wrong earlier in life. I got my dad convinced to get meds for his when he was hitting 190/120 for a few days in a row.

 

 

As a Cardiac Sonographer I highly recommend you see a doctor ASAP. Get an EKG and an echocardiogram, depending on how long your BP has been like that you run the risk of having a hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (thick heart muscle) or an aortic aneurysm. If you’re experiencing strong back pain, drop everything and go to the ER. Otherwise do lots of yoga breathing to keep that BP down. Slow inhale through the nose, hold for five seconds and exhale through the mouth. Best of luck!

Thank you- starting some yoga & making dietary changes.  Also setting up a Virtual Appointment with a Dr for going on a Blood Pressure Meds

 

Last thing to add about BP, normal is 120/80. If you're near this number it's good but if it's 15 points higher or 25 points lower than the normal number go see a doctor. Especially if you have family history of heart/BP issues.

I've been tracking for a bit- hoping the weekend was just a fluke

Attched: This has been the past time- hoping to continue a downward trend.

Thank you for all of the advice- it's been really appreciated and helped me understand how big of an issue this is.  I truly appreciate how supportive this community/thread is

Wow I love our community here.  Someone posts what, to them, is only a mild concern and immediately the discussion isn't centered on video games or saving money or whatever random topic of the hour we're discussing, but on the well-being of one of us.

 

To me, that number meant nothing so glad to have all this experience around.  Go team!  :grouphug:
