Is there a stigma to having high blood pressure? Someone commented to me that I didn't look as though I had high blood pressure.

I was tempted to ask what I should look like.! I felt a sense of shame at the diagnosis and feel it is a stigma. I wonder if this is what other people feel. I believe people who are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes can feel stigmatised thanks to a bad press about obesity and type 2 diagnosis. Does the same apply to high blood pressure I wonder? What do others think?
