when does it end?

As you can see.....
I am once again dealing with extremely high bp and trying to decide if I am sick or just what?
I checked it this morning and it was extremely high, took my bp meds, waited an hour, checked again, very little change, in both arms.
I am currently taking three bp meds, in addition to two fluid pills and have been on a mostly soft/liquid diet this past week for pre op.
I am so tired of this.
How can one be expected for their bp to be normal when they stress out and worry because bp is never normal and keep taking pills and seeing doctors???
My surgery was postponed once due to my bp being too high and the surgeon is having me keep a log this week leading up to it and on the morning of my surgery if its high, she isnt going to do it.
I can say ok, it might or might not be this high at that moment, but the fact is, something is making it this high all the rest of the time.
I know it can be controlled while I am under, but do I want to take that chance?
Unneccessary complications?
I want to go to the walking track but I feel bad, my bp is high and I wonder if instead I should go see a doctor? what would they do if I went?
I have to take my mom to the eye doctor later today as she is freaking out because she was told last week she is in early stages of glaucoma and has convinced herself she will be blind in a matter of weeks.
I told her to read up online about it and see what she can find out.
So much stress!!

    Take you BP medication first thing in the morning wait until late morning to take a reading. It takes a little time to kick in. Good luck!!

    Hang in there and keep doing those right things. I'm sure it must be stressful and frustrating - but hopefully the medication, diet and exercise will kick in soon!
