I llok after my good lady who has progressive MS. Its so hard watching her try to cope. I put a brave face on but inside I am falling to pieces. I gave up work to look after her fulltime so I am alone now trying to cope. Over the past few years I have started having panic attacks when it gets dark. I feel I cant stay in the house when darkness falls. I have been having strange thoughts about my own death and how my wife would cope without me. I am very short tempered now but I cant take it out on my wife so I bottle it up. I some times just want to be alone and not speal to anyone. I now have developed creepy crawly skin sensation on my face plus an increase in skin sensativity all over. I havent been to the docs yet. Can anybody give me advice. Are these symptoms of anxiety ?
