Anxiety and Depression Support

Anxiety Overload

Hi friends. I needed some "talk" therapy, so here I am. We found out recently that my father-in-law has advanced liver & lung cancer which is taking him quickly and he is now in hospice. It's very sad because we are in NY and he lives in AZ; we have a flight out on Wednesday and hope he makes it that long to be honest.

This has thrown me into panic/anxiety mode big time. My husband is not handling this well -if things weren't bad enough, my husband is afraid of flying, so he's not doing well either. Oddly enough, I'm not afraid of flying (I'm just afraid of life!), but the preparation and the unknown that I'm facing really has made me into a hot mess. I know I have to be there for my husband, at least for a little while in AZ. I'm not sure until I go to work tomorrow how much time they'll let me take, so that has me stressed too.

Thanks for being here for me. I feel better just writing down how I feel. My stomach is in knots and I feel the tremors come on every once in a while. This anxiety sucks big time. Worry is one thing.....but this anxiety affects me so bad physically. I'm sure there's some of you out there who suffer from the same thing.

I hope you don't mind if I ask for prayers? I believe prayer can be very powerful and I certainly could use the help right now from my Higher Power.

Thanks again for all your support. This group is just awesome and I'm so thankful I found this site. Love to all.

Too many things to think about at one time. Tackle each step before you think about the next. God is there beside you. Put your trust in Him and He will help you through this

Thank you! That's the advice I give other people; I should know better. Yes, I think I'll let God take over the steering.

My mantra is; At this point, everything in my life is exactly as it is meant to be.

Acceptance is the most important skill I have ever learned. I also believe that things are not good or bad, it’s the view I choose to take of them that makes them so. All that you see today that is bad gave me the opportunity to meet you, for that I thank your challenges.

Hi I am new on here. I know what u are going thru. I just lost my mom 8 weeks ago to a brain aneorism. Heartbreaking. I will send prayers for strength. You will get thru this. Some how the body will fill you with adrenaline to get thru the tough times. That happened to me when my mom was dying. It held me together for about 2 weeks. Then came anxiety. I do meditation tapes on you tube, and it really helps to calm me down. And also prayer. Take care in this tough time. D
