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? I've been dealing with this for the past several months and have good days and not-so-good days. Working with my primary care dr., initially to work with elevated blood pressure. 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?
When I'm on the receiving end of anger, I get anxious and tend to end up defaulting to thinking I'm wrong even when I'm not. How can I stand my ground and be level headed when dealing with anger?
