Hi everyone, my name is Angela, and this is my first time, and I'm excited but nervous. I have suffered from anxiety since I was in my 20s and I am now 46. The more I occupy myself, the better I have become. I use never to be afraid of going to the doctor, and I still am ok with going, however, soon as they want to check my blood pressure I started going into panic mood. My heart starts beating fast, I get sweaty, nervous and can't sit still. I become very talkative, and I'm saying to myself; what is wrong with you Angela. I have normal blood pressure but I don't understand why this happens to me. Somebody, please help me to figure out how I can overcome this terrifying part of life we all have to do.
