Hi, I have been suffering with my anxiety for about 10 months. It has gotten out of control this month. I has affected my BP. Once it goes up I have a hard time bringing it back down. I tried breathing exercises, but it doesn't seem to help. I must not be doing it right. Meditation, I can't seem to focus. I know all this takes time & skill, my problem is looking for a solution right here & now. I so want to get back to my old self. I hate feeling like this. I have given up & trying anti-depressants. trying zoloft today. Horrible side effects. BP was still high. anyone know any relaxation techniques. I am going to see my therapist tomorrow and a massage therapist too. So much tension. Will life ever be the same again, before this mess!
