I can totally relate. I got dx with high bp the first week of December 2004 and it COMPLETELY ruined my holidays. I was so freaked out by it, I think I was raising my bp even more. Course my doctor was kind of a jerk about it and said some really stupid things to me (when I told her to give me a couple months to try to get in under control without meds she said "ok fine. but you could drop dead in that couple of months).
What REALLY bothered me was my bp wasn't ALL that high (I had numbers like yours). But I didn't know it at the time. She made it sound like it was catastrophic... and I wasn't educated enough (at the time) to know it really wasn't.
Here's my advice. Do a LOT of reading (High Blood Pressure for Dummys is a good place to start). The more you learn, the less anxiety it will cause you. At least that helped me a lot. Reading this board has helped me a lot too (even though I really never post). High bp is treatable. In some cases reversible without meds (diet, exercise, quitting smoking, don't drink a lot), but above all, RELAX.
I was in a state of almost panic for a month after my doctor dx'd me. It ruined Christmas for me... everything. I wish I could go back and have a "do-over". I freaked myself out for no reason.... and kept my bp higher than it would have otherwise been as a result. And yes, I was exhausted. And it was all from the anxiety.
I hope that helps make you feel better.
