Should I worry about my blood pressure?
I'm 43 years old.

Today I had my blood pressure taken. 124 over 78.

I'm almost thinkin' that's a little too low.

1. Actually, the optimum is 120/80, so you're good.
Unless you get a letter from the IRS demanding $30,000. *Then* expect it to be about 310/240.

I'm 34 years old (and 6 months).

I don't think you have anything to worry about.

11. Well...
I can just imagine how low it would be if this job didn't make working at Radar Site 10 on the Korean DMZ (where lifespan in case of war is so low some asshole...well, it was Colonel Menoher, who definitely wasn't an asshole...actually stapled a target on the front of the site so the North Koreans would have something to aim at) seem relaxing...

and our annual inventory (I'm asked to come up with about $1.5 million in stock, and it's all over my 75,000sf building) is in a week...

and our scheduler does stupid shit like scheduling one of my guys 10am-2pm, one of them 10am-7pm (his lunch is at 2pm) and me 5am-2pm on the exact same day, meaning that for one hour, absolutely no one was working in the busiest department in the whole store...

and remember, this is still the Cumberland County Fucking Idiot Preserve...

5. wouldn't worrying about it raise it?
that's a bad biofeedback loop.

8. Low? Mine is usually 90s or low 100s/50 or 60.
One time recently it was 88/56, and no, I didn't pass out.

I think you're fine. :)

10. No, that is good
I guess in some cases too low is bad...but mine has always been low. As has my mom's. Too high is definitely bad.
