operation with your blood pressure that high.

- Alright.

- Yes.

- Well relax!! I'll take your blood pressure one

- Why don't you?

You're the one that's having the operation.

Well LE actually it was from a young nurse and an orderly, don't know how an orderly is entitled to make decisions like this!

olive tree

Only recently did the medical profession realise that constantly taking a patient’s blood pressure actually caused them anticipation and rendered them more prone to anxiety.

Also usually telling someone to “relax” is just going to have the opposite effect and frustrate them. I hold a lot of resentment for authority figures, doctors and psychiatrists in particular. Thank god for anaesthetics is all I can say...

Totally agree with you olive tree, my recent trip to hospital showed that. As for shrinks they are crazier than me!
