I'm going to talk to my T tomorrow about it

My p-doc wasn't impressed when I told her about my experience with this T and her schedule changings, but agreed that my anxiety is probably making it worse, too. I am going to talk to my T when I see her tomorrow about the implications of missed/changed appointments and how to remedy it. P-doc said if I wasn't satisfied with the outcome she'll help me find a new therapist. In the meantime I don't feel that I have someone reliable to call (tomorrow at 6pm seems so very far off).

I am having a tough time. My blood pressure has been high. Sitting in p-doc's office yesterday, both her nurses and the doctor took my BP. Doctor asked me if I wanted to go to the ER. She is concerned about the risk of stroke. I was kind of relieved (!) to know that the pounding of blood I hear is not ALL anxiety, but I was freaking out, to be sure. When I got home I took a xanax, stretched out on the sofa, and an hour later I was back to 120/80. I took a lavender bath with my husband's encouragement and had an early night's sleep.

So my p-doc had me stop taking the antidepressant I've been on (Cymbalta) which seems to be the cause. I wonder now how long before I lose my job when the real, depressed and anxiety-ridden ME resurfaces. If I don't croak of a stroke before then. I still have my xanax, and the p-doc told me not to hesitate in using it as needed.
