Re: Diagnosed - High BP - scared

I promise you ... you need not pray.

I understand the anxiety ... I've been through this myself.

When you have time I suggest you might glance through the discussion we've been having about treating BP in the range shown when you visited the docs and some new thinking about it.

http://www.healthboards.com/boards/high-low-blood-pressure/927800-stage-1-high-blood-pressure-140-159-90-99-should-treated-meds.html

I'm not a doctor and have no qualifaction. Presumably your alcohol levels are reduced now so that will help.

I do however believe that you'll find your BP will reduce once you're relaxed and may not need treating. Try learning about hypertension and taking control and decision making for yourself based on the range of opinions you will encounter.

Good luck.
