Re: Afraid to work
It's also possible that what you were doing job-wise had nothing at all to do with beginning to have hypertension. It's like women who say cleaning the bath tub "caused" them to go into labor.... when in fact they only happened to be cleaning when labor began. Stress is a factor, yes, but to blame working for causing your high BP is probably over-simplifying the cause. I wonder - - and please don't be angry - - if this is somewhat of an excuse to not get a job? Try to eat well and get some exercise and have a healthy lifestyle in general - for sure don't smoke - and if needed, lose weight. (Yeah, easy for ME to say!) I wish you well.
