Me and ex were together 22 years, split up recently but got on great since even had a holiday abroad, till recently and she told me she had met someone, there having days out etc she says there just friends, and this is the biggest thing to hit me for years I feel absolutely smashed and devastated, she's even buying motorbike gear, which he's into but she's never been into. It's hitting me massively

If somebody can inbox me I'll go further into detail rather than on here.

That is rough. I would be devasted as well in that situation. I think for your own mental health you should not see the ex. You will only be teasing yourself.

May I ask what is a & e?

Hi Tech40, Welcome to the support group. You won't find a nicer, caring group of people than this forum. I'm sorry you are struggling right now. Unfortunately high blood pressure is provoked by high anxiety. I have that myself.

Whatever happened a few days ago apparently hit you hard enough to release the adrenaline and get your blood pressure to spike. Were you given any medication from your doctor. Blood Pressure meds can make a difference with your anxiety. Kind of a 2-fold med. The fact that you think you cannot cope anymore means you might need to seek professional advice from a therapist who can help you sort out and address the issues.

We are here to help get you through this difficult time by sharing our journeys with each other. You are never alone.
