Good Morning,

Although I'm very aware that anxiety itself won't kill me, the stress that causes strain on my body can. I'm now on blood pressure meds, my heartis constantly pounding whether I'm sleep or awake. I have to have surgery in a couple weeks and im EXTREMELY terrified that may get blood clots or something. I'm just praying that everything goes well. Keep me in your prayers, please! Thank you guys

Hi Kenya40, I also am on blood pressure meds and worried just like you that the stress and strain of anxiety itself would be harmful. That's when I started using relaxation and deep breathing to keep me in a calming state throughout the day. Using those techniques can actually keep you in a steady calm state. I would suggest these couple weeks before surgery to start using meditation several times a day. Calm your mind, the doctors will take care of keeping you safe in surgery. Meanwhile I'm sure you will have the support and prayers from myself and the forum. Keeping you in our thoughts.

Anxiety and Stress can cause harm yes but not in an immediate way. By that I mean a calm person on average is gonna live longer than a nervous person but look at it like someone that's smokes drinks or overweight. It's not certain doom just a factor.

I drink Chamomile Herbal tea when I fell anxious and I find that helps calm me.
