I started driving big trucks in 1980 over the time as I got older blood pressure became a issue and as time went by it increase. This is what a lot of older truckers deal with. Well last year My mother past away and the more information I got was to lower blood pressure watch what you eat or get married or adopt a pet. My neighbor had three dogs and this pug adopted me. And so the story is guess who won . I did not get married. I try to watch what I eat. The PUG. Sassy just love to go with me in my personal truck My blood pressure is now controlled and I do more local deliveries. Its true if blood pressure is a problem get a pet.
