Low blood pressure: I think I have worked it out

Hi guys,

I think my low blood pressure is caused by depression. I've been recently making a log of my readings, and it seems that depression may be the culprit. I've noticed I need a systolic reading in the teens, and a diastolic reading in the 70's to feel okay. Please feel free to make a comment. These numbers are for the preceding 8 days. Unless a comment accompanies the numbers, I am feeling like a zombie.

Saturday 8:15pm: 116/67; P. 56.
Saturday 11:45pm: 106/64; P. 56.
Sunday 9:00am: 103/59; P. 63.
Sunday after run: 102/61; P.79. Run makes no difference.
Sunday 5.00pm: 111/71; P.60. Went to friends house in the afternoon, but did not feel any better.

Monday 5.00pm 111/64; P. 73.
Tuesday 5.00pm 103/59; P. 70.
Tuesday 9.00pm 119/72; P.64. Feeling really good, so I checked pressure. No apparent reason for the increase.
Wednesday 3.30pm 99/59; P. 75.
Wednesday 5.30pm 111/68; P. –
Wednesday 9.52pm 99/59; P. 64.
Thursday 7.00am 106/63; P. 73.
Thursday 5.00pm 114/61; P. 73.
Thursday 8.35pm 125/73; P. 62 . Made plans to go out with pal to a bar Friday night. I made plans at 5.30pm. Feel good for the next 2 days.
Friday 12.00pm 116/72; P. 63.
Friday 5.00pm 112/71; P. 66.
Saturday no reading taken.
Sunday 7.00pm 100/59; P. 69 Feeling like crap again.

It seems to me more likely that a reverse hypothesis is in play here.

...That your low'ish blood pressure is causing your lethargy and feelings of depression rather than the other way around.
