Okay, here I go again. Before I start let me say that I do have an appoinment with my doctor tomorrow. I am going nuts wondering if anxiety is pushing my BP or elevated BP is causing anxiety. I just know I want to cry all the time now...this is new...before I just had bouts of crying. I feel pretty good one day maybe two then I am exhausted. When I feel edgy I take my BP and it is high, (last night 144/103). I took a Klonopin. I already take alprazolam 2 mg extended release, one a day (generic Xanax). I take the Klonopin as needed if I still feel anxious. I am already on BP medicine and have been on an anti-depressant for some time now- wellbutrin, or the generic bupropion. I am wondering if I need to talk about medication changes. All of that I will address with my doctor tomorrow. I am just wondering if anyone else suffers from these two problems. Greiving and being sad is bad enough, but having to worry with and about anxiety and BP that is too high is making all of this worse! I would love to just have a screaming fit, but I don't want my BP to go off the charts....Seems though seriously, as time goes on I am getting more emotional and missing Jim more. I know I have already written about that once. Please can someone offer me some hope about this anxiety BP thing?
