Anxiety

Hello everyone my name is John and I’m being dealing with anxiety/ depression the past 6 years. It all started after losing my grandmother. I used to be better active and trained jiu Jitsu...but I took some time off once my son was born and gained a lil weight and lost motivation to even want to do anything anymore besides go to work and come home. And now it’s starting to effect my relationship because I don’t ever want to do anything. Any advice out there would be appreciated thank you.

Losing someone you love can be so very difficult, I know I lost my mom 29 years ago, 6 weeks later gave birth to my 3rd child! You must try to focus on some happy thoughts, i know that can be a challenge yet it does help, of course not everything! Get the negative out of your head and focus on the positive, which also is a challenge! I wish you all the best and if I can be of any help just let me know!

Hi. It might be helpful to figure out why losing your grandmother hit you so hard. I lost my grandma too. She was the only person who loved me when I was a child. My mom was always dropping me off and abandoned me. So when grandma passed it was so sad for me to lose that person from my childhood who loved me. My faith is strong and I have hope I'll see her again. I hope this helps. God bless you.

She pretty much raised me growing up and I was closer to her then my own parents....I never had a anxiety attack until a few months after she passed.... and I still got them from time time
