You lie awake thinking of all types of plans to rid yourself of this evil. By the time you come up with an idea it’s almost time to wake up. You never get enough sleep. What’s crazy is that you repeat this cycle nightly.
Raised Blood Pressure
Yes, your pressure will go up with the anxiety filled inside of you hoping to eliminate this bad 4 letter word which has been holding you back. There are many instances in which a person will need to control their pressure with medication.
You hurt everywhere because happiness has been stolen from you. Fatigue sets in making it difficult to get up and be active.
