Nine days ago, I had my blood pressure checked, my cholesterol, and my glucous. I got back some pretty seemingly wildly inaccurate numbers.
Today, I visited my GP to find out once and for all whether the rent-a-nurse was indeed smoking crack or if she was giving me correct numbers. I am A-OK. In fact, my HDL is out of this world. (HDL, I am told, is good cholesterol. Howley Does Like.) Now, pass the cheese.
I am trying to figure out, however, if I should tell my employer how horribly off my numbers were. Even the blood pressure reading was way off. I realize these things take time to learn, but before a nurse goes around giving people numbers that can actually raise their blood pressure, don’t you think it’s best to keep them away from the hypochondriacs? Certainly others had a similar experience. The thing that freaks me out a little bit now is that there is a really false reading floating around and is now possibly in the hands of my employer.
The moral of this story: Never, ever agree to a freebee from your employer (in more ways that just one). Ever. I know I wear a tinfoil hat sometimes, but this doesn’t sit well with me.
