Since my bypass surgery in February and then PM implanted in June, I seem to get stressed out a whole lot easier. I'll feel sick for two or three days. My cardiologist has told me there is nothing mechanically wrong with my heart. I've never had a heart attack. He tells me that I'll still have bad days from time to time but not to worry about them. He has told me to get my mind off how I feel and quit checking my bp all the time. He says when you check your bp too often you'll expect it to be high and that alone will keep it up. I believe him and think he's the best.
My problem is that I am having a hard time handling stress now. What are some of the ways or exercises that some of you use to help relieve stress?
