142/85 is far from "sky high". Relax and it will come down...actually stop taking your blood pressure. That would be a good first step.
I agree with shawn
fordaisy, you've had a few posts lately. I haven't posted on them but read a few. your anxiety has been SKY HIGH lately. High anxiety will often trigger higher BP. this is especially true when the anxious person worries about bp and follows it closely.
If you've come off ativan recently, you will have to expect some anxiety like this. ativan and other meds in that class (while they can help some people short term) don't fix anxiety. you are going to have to try other 'natural' methods to calm yourself.
so besides stopping the checking of bp, another beneficial thing to do is really distract your mind and body.. Yes, of course, it is difficult and beasty will tell you that you can't..... but we all can distract the mind/body. there are many things to do even at night. what distractions are you willing to do? and I mean is distractions given the proper chance to do its job without you monitoring?
