I recently lost my grandad in December in an unexpected, accidental death, and then 4months to the day he died, my father passed away which was also sudden and unexpected, and I witnessed it happen. Since watching my dad die in front of me I have had terrible anxiety. I’ve never been an anxious person and I just can’t seem to get rid of physical anxiety symptoms. I am constantly experiencing shortness of breath, feeling nauseous, sometimes dizzy, I am also constantly worried that something bad is going to happen either to myself or to my mother, and it’s really affecting me. I’ve also had bad insomnia even though I am exhausted most days. I’m have received sleeping tablets from my doctors which work some days but not all of the time. I’m also constantly worrying that my anxiety symptoms are something more sinister and feel as though I am going to die, it’s always on my mind. It probably sounds dramatic but it’s just how I feel. I’ve contacted my GP about it, I tried medication to try and settle my anxiety which didn’t seem to work, the doctors are adamant that’s it’s just anxiety but will not give me a face to face appointment because of covid. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations on how to handle severe anxiety as I’ve tried breathing exercises and all of that stuff but it just doesn’t seem to work and it’s awful to feel this way all of the time, super long post just feeling so overwhelmed recently, thanks.
