In brief: Care for you

Don't smoke. Maintain healthy weight.
Go to aha website and learn about low salt diet. Part is not your fault. High BP at your age is often inherited. I bet you know family members who died too soon. You can change that by caring for yourself and keeping a normal bp. If this is not possible with advice above then start meds. Your np should be less than 135 on top. Good luck.
