  • Hi

    I'm sorry to hear of your distress. It's not uncommon for people to find themselves feeling vulnerable and concerned about their own mortality when someone close to them dies. Over time these feelings should lessen.

    However, your distress sounds quite high and so you're doing the right thing by using your doctor for help. It may be a good idea to touch base with him or her again and discuss your concerns about the medication prescribed and he/she may be able to reassure you about how it is supposed to work and any issues you may have about taking it.

    Without knowing where you live I don't know what other support there may be for you, either through your GP's practice or other sources - it doesn't all have to be about medication.

    Finally, please don't lose hope. Anxiety is often transient and there are very practical things that can help you to manage it and to get back to a place of some peace of mind.

    Kind Regards

  • Oh dear. Take a deep breath. Death is part of life. This sounds like a very severe depression. Have you tried talking with anyone about your loss? You need to find some sort of acceptance so that you can continue on with your life. For your nana. For your self and for your children.

    As for worrying that you will be next to die, this is more common than you know. This is again where I think talking to someone ( like a therapist) might be incredibely helpful. I went through something very similiar for months..

    It takes help.time.strength & love. I know that because you are already searching for help this too shall pass. You will smile again. You will have peace again and your nana can't wait for that day.
