Like all have said, it is natural for your BP to increase when you are stressed. Your body is in fight or flight mode. It is getting ready to run from whatever perceived danger it thinks you are in. It's getting ready to run from "the big bear". I learned this in my stress management class this semester. This class has really helped me a lot. It gives me ways to try and shut off the fight or flight thing.
Also, valerian root is an herbal antidepressant and the melatonin is an herbal sleep aide. I've tried tham both. Didn't like the varlerian root, I can't remember why, but the melatonin worked until my body got used to it, just like it does with everything else.
Good luck to you, keep posting. We have an AWESOME group here who have helped me out a ton.
