When someone is said to have emotional problems what does that actually mean?

"Emotional Problems": I agree with dr. Chen and the possibilities he raises. But this term is so wide it defines little, and you would need to ask the speaker what s/he means.

I'm a closeted agnostic and it's making me miserable and worsening emotional problems. Do you have any advice?

Not a health problem..: …until it affects your health. WHY are you closeted? Your own guilt at rejecting a religious upbringing or fear of rejection by others? Self-acceptance – perhaps with professional help – will help alleviate both. Hard to imagine here in the West, but there are actually nontheistic religions e.g. Buddhism; learning more about them may help you feel more comfortable with your own beliefs. ...Read more

I noticed lately my sistolic BP gets higher between 130 140 when I have emotional problems ; should I be concern the rest of the time my BP is normal?

It is normal for pressure to go up when you are upset. Sometimes exercising when you are having stress is a good way to deal with the increase in pressure. It helps get your mind off your worries and your blood pressure. Good luck. ...Read more
