Hi Heavenly.

I wonder if your worry about helping is making you more anxious. If you feel you can cope then by all means give it a try, but if you are at all unsure then have a word with your doctor I am not familiar with your condition so I am unable to offer any real help. I hope you can get it sorted out soon.



My heart rate is around 80 per minutes...My heart will get a bit irregular but the doctor said to just try and relax....


If your doctor says try and relax then I feel you shouldn't be exerting yourself by doing anything strenuous like cleaning. Remember your health comes first.


I get frightened....


Hi there,

I just do not know where this anxiety comes from?


That's the thing with anxiety, it creeps up on you.

Just a suggestion, how about reading up on anxiety?

Knowledge is power and it could help you understand what's happening.



Hi Heavenly,

You look and sound a young grandma, I would help them if I could, little and often, when you feel like it, maybe it will help take your mind off the anxiety a little. Listen to your body, this anxiety is horrible.

you poor thing,may i ask how old you are .My mum is 90 has your conditions has no time to feel anxious as my father needs her full time care after a quad bypass she still runs around all day because he is like a child

p.s they can afford full time nursing,but no she wants to do it
