Is their Anyone get better from anxiety?

Mom died Last year Aug.22 2018

I was healthy before that, but 1 month after my moms death, I been feeling shortness of breath been trying to walk or go shopping just to feel better but sadly none of it works 1 night i called emergency all because i can't breath, i was sweating,numb frontal of my face,heart racing..while i was at emergency they did all the laboratory results are all negative, and they just ask me to go home without medication, they ask me to find an intern doctor.

Much said, i have been dealing anxiety up to recent, its really hard.

Sorry for your loss of mother. Losing someone close could be painful. Exercise along with meditation works. Try sitting in a corner of the room without any distractions initially. You can use music, just silence or you can just focus on your breath for few minutes. And as you get comfortable you can stretch it for more than initial time.

Very sorry for your loss may your Mother rest in peace

There is a very good chance your anxiety will get better because it is a response to a important life event a very sad one in your case - seems like you are in shock and you need to take good care of yourself and allow yourself to grieve allow yourself to be in a quiet state of shock maybe you can't even cry yet

The way to breathe for relief is to breath in through your nose slowly breathe in as much air as you can and fill your lungs expand your ribs to contain the air then when you are full hold it for a few seconds then slowly breathe out of your mouth - repeat a few times

Your Mum is in heaven now but she wants you to take care of yourself don't expect too much of yourself don't push yourself to be normal because these are not normal times for you it is going to take time and you can't rush it

So yes you will get better eventually but not yet

Thank you so much, this makes me feel better of and chances,

I always thought of fear after her death, and the feeling of guilt that i wish i could have done more for her.

I take care of her for more than 1 month run around 4 hospitals with her to give her a good medical care. 7 siblings but i did it all errands by my self including finances although money wasn't a problem , but was the most emotional for me doing everything, with that i was worried with my dad who just have a heart attack dragging him with me helping just to stay on my mom side..they cannot be separated.... after her death i fear... i don't know why i felt guilt.. certainly none of my sibling support me. Rather ungrateful now they are all fighting for properties.

You have no reason to feel guilty which is a good feeling
