Hi, after not the best relationship with my folks growing up due to their issues with drinking and other factors which meant a very dysfunctional upbringing for myself.
I am after 10 years living back in the same town as them, they are still having issues but I now have my own life and attempt to get on with it. However, I feel obliged to pay them a visit from time to time as they are my parents and when sober not bad people.
However, every time I go there (I went this afternoon) I get the worst stomach dwelling anxiety which effects the rest of my day. Not sure what is at the root of this really, or how I can prevent it apart from avoiding them!
Just wondering if anybody has had similar experiences?
