Anyone else experience a sudden quantum jump in blood pressure, particularly systolic since

whistleblower stuff came out recently? Just curious cause I did starting Friday (3 days so far but lower
yesterday). I went from between 104-115 up to around 130 (average). I take it daily.

1. Every time I see a Trumpster being interviewed, and every time I see someone post a Trump tweet

and THAT is why none of us need guns in our households.

Yeah, I'm only being slightly hyperbolic there...

3. Maybe if Trump goes it will resolve the problem, eh?

5. Hopefully. But I think he's taken ten years off the lives of most of us

Sort of underscores the old adage "ignorance is bliss"...

2. Actually, mine jumped high on 11/9/2016.

And has put me in ER 3 times with stroke level numbers since then.

8. Update:

OK after that quantum jump I waited a few days and nervously took it again. Now over 150!
So then I freaked and refuse to take it at all. Everytime I get ready to maybe take it I feel myself
stressing out. Negative reinforcement seems very effective with me. How do I get over this sudden
anxiety? My bp was great for quite an extended period and I had confidence everytime I took it.

That's gone.
