I'm so sorry I forgot about the high blood pressure. Are the meds you've been given for that helping at all? The 2 week mark seems like a relatively good time for you to go back to your doc, have the blood pressure checked and talk further to your doc about the anxiety/depression.
I don't think most people around me know when I'm depressed. Part of me is relieved at that, because I very often feel like "I don't want to talk about it" and would prefer to just shut down. Then sometimes I wish someone just knew -- without me having to explain it all -- and that they were instantly fine with it, so that I had someone to give me a hug or just any sort of comfort. Struggling so hard with my ex/partner (who's got manic depression) and can't tell him how I'm feeling, cos he'd know it's got a lot to do with dealing with how his illness has affected him and our relationship; then he'd feel even more guilty to add to everything else he's going through, would decide for me once and for all that it's not fair on me, and would run away totally. My only chance of helping him at all is if he doesn't know for now. I've realised recently that even if he turned round all better tomorrow (in a kind of miracle way) I'd still have a lot of issues going on and would probably not be able to stop the fear and sadness I always feel these days (for a start I'd always be wondering "what next?"); so, yes, back to the doc. Then perhaps I'll be able to cope better generally. (Sorry, that was a kind of long response to your question, and I know it drifted. Hope you don't mind me just letting all that out in your thread: just don't feel up to starting one of my own with all the fear, etc. I don't expect anyone to comment on this stuff, just helped to write it out.)
Take care Tuna.
