I am sorry to hear about your sad loss & I must say it is quite common in anxiety sufferers when loosing a loved one for this to trigger anxiety in us & it seems from what you say this is what maybe has happened to you

I feel you are not in the UK so not been sure where you are from I am not sure what services & medical care are available to you as in the UK we have counselling to help with our anxiety as well as bereavement counselling which can really help when we have lost someone we love both these could greatly help you if they were available where you are

Have you been back & spoken to the doctor about how you are feeling & you could ask if maybe if they think how you feel could be side effects from the medication as there is a slight possibility even though it sounds more like anxiety as these are common symptoms that we get when we are suffering

Members will reply as they log on & give you some more advise but there is also another anxiety site on HU called Living with anxiety where you will find more people that are or have dealt with anxiety that can offer more support to :-)

If you follow the link it will take you straight to the community & you would be most welcomed :-)

Please no need to apologize for your English you did a great post & explained how you felt very fluently :-)

thanks for reply last week visit dr and she told me same thing anxiety and she said you have to quit xanax also because its not good she said you gonna be addictive if you didnt quit but can you tell me how can you get rid of anxiety when i play xbox i didnt feel anything i chat with my friends and when i alone of when neight start i feel these symptomps thanks if you reply



I think you have answered your own question as you say when you are distracted you dont feel anxious but when you are on your own with your thoughts the anxiety starts creeping back in so it can help if we keep distracted & when the feelings & thoughts start creeping in if you tell yourself this is anxiety & wont harm you even though I know it is unpleasant then you give the anxiety less control & that eliminates the fear that creates anxiety

It is not easy put with practice & support you can achieve this

I would take your doctors advise & start to come of the medication if it is addictive but if you are still struggling maybe ask if there is something else you can take that is not addictive or like I said some counselling

I see you have joined Living with anxiety , do a post on there & get lots more advise :-)
