Re: How to de-stress / relax in the moment?

Play music and/or sing.

Anti-anxiety meds worked wonders for my mom as I mentioned before though she eventually gave them up cause she herself had side effects.

I expected my blood pressure to go down after I retired due to the incredible drop in stress. It did go down but not as much as I thought it would. I just switched to a new doctor and she's running a ton of tests on me cause she doesn't understand why my blood pressure is so severe that I need tons of medication still. I suspect it's cause I endured too much stress for too long and it's caused permanent damage.

Anxiety shouldn't be taken lightly imo. It can destroy your body long term. I think anti-anxiety meds are worth the risk if without them, you're going to destroy yourself and take years off your life. Sorry, I imagine I sound like a salesman but I feel strongly about this.
