Looking for help/advice guys. My uncle passed away suddenly last week aged 42 and I’v been in a high state of anxiety since and just cannot relax or stop the negative thoughts. I was in between panic attacks all through the wake and funeral, living on Xanax to get me through. I usually only have a Xanax when I really need them, maybe one twice a week at this stage but I have taken 3 per day over the last week just to give my mind and body a break from the stress/fear. I have health anxiety and my main fear is a heart attack and that’s what my uncle died from, his dad, my grandad died of a heart attack at age 45 and his sister, my mum died from cancer at age 32. Now I just fear we are cursed or something. All throughout the wake/funeral I was imagining it being me and just couldn’t stop.
I don’t know what to do. What can GP do for me? I’m already on prozac and take Xanax when needed. Thanks for reading x
