Yes!!!!! I definitely can relate. My job caused me more stress than I can tell you. My boss stressed me out so bad one day I felt sick and had to leave. That was a friday morning. All weekend I would look in the mirror wondering why my face was so red. Felt terrible. Saw my PCP that Tuesday and my BP was 167/97.
My Dr. was so angry. He put me out of work for two weeks until I had to see him again to see if the meds worked in bringing my BP down. before this my BP was always somehwere around 117/70. He called my HR director and due to the privacy act told her I would be out of work and under his care for at least 2 weeks until I saw him for a follow-up. The extra week was really beneficial in going back into the demons. Best of luck.
