If you are living with high blood pressure and you wish to talk about your experience, how you deal with it or even just a small chit-chat with other people who has the same condition as you, I have an excellent “place” for you to hang around.
American Heart Association has a forum that is dedicated for high blood pressure patients. The forum is very active and members are always engaging in useful discussions and giving support for each other. If you have any question in mind regarding high blood pressure management, diet, medications etc, just ask and people will be willingly to share their knowledge with you.
How do I know? Because, I am pretty active in the forum too!
Similar to most forums online, you need to register for a free account before you can participate in any of the threads or discussions. My username is minusbloodpressure. Catch you there. Here’s the link for the forum:
Are you into Facebook? Millions of people, young and old, are into it. It’s the no.1 social networking site at the moment and people are crazy over it. Well, that’s because it’s fun and you can interact with your friends or get to know other people who has the same interests as you.

It’s like a Facebook where you can interact with people and join “support groups” who has the same health conditions as you. DailyStrength is the largest, most comprehensive health network of people sharing their advice, treatment experiences and support.
And yes! There is a high blood pressure/hypertension support group. I must say it’s a great place to hang out with, talk to people about your experiences and show some love to people who needed help.
