I've belonged to this group for some time but this is my first post. Is it possible to talk yourself out of being anxious?

We had a discussion about whether the BP was causing the anxiety or the anxiety causing BP problem (which came first, the chicken or the egg?). BP RX worked for a while but when I get anxious, it rises. I have an appointment coming up with him to discuss and want to bring up the possibility of RX to treat anxiety. I'm also seeing a wonderful psychotherapist who was a great help to me with grief counseling after my husband died suddenly. Had a good session last week and I left feeling great. Today...not so good. Last week the psychotherapist told me not to be afraid of taking RX for the anxiety. I read that a good way to deal with anxiety was to write down your feelings, which is why I'm here now.
I think that I need a good cry! Anyone else feel that way?
I cant take much more, money worries, disabled daughter, useless husband.
