Re: Scared.....and I know that won't help.....
Exercise (aerobic type) is one of the best stress relievers there is. Also, deep breathing exercises while you are sitting in a comfortable chair will also help. Also sitting in a comforable chair, concentrate on a different part of your body, one at a time, and try to relax that part as much as you can, for example, concentrate on your left foot to relax it as much as possible, then your left leg, etc. until you have relaxed your entire body.
Restrict salt in your diet, eat plenty of whole fruits and vegetables, and consume low fat dairy products. This is called the DASH diet for people with hypertension due to any reason.
Most of all have faith in the future rather than fear of the future. A positive mental attitude, no matter what your circumstances, can help.
