Persistent hypertension is one of the risk factors for strokes, heart attacks, heart failure and arterial aneurysm, and is a leading cause of chronic renal failure.

I used to notice (before I had H BP) that friends were easily irritable....I become extremely anxious..and I took a tylenole PM last night which relaxes me because it has Benedryl in it...However when it wears off I'm back at square one...
I feele hot then cold,,and I am way past hot flashes!
I need the simple calm life..Stresses I cannot deal with anymore. Do you find that too?

Yes! I stress out a lot, though. I learned that meditation really helps to calm me down and put me in a state of balance. I used to think meditating sounded so stupid! lol. But finding some soothing music and shutting out distractions really helps!
