Hi everyone, been going through a lot of stress lately. For starters my sister had a double lung transplant 6 yrs ago, started rejecting after 6 mths and died on her 6th bday of transplant. I was very close with her, she was like or mother , we are all lost without her. But all the stress triggered my anxiety which I battled many years ago. I wake up every day with this fear in my belly, I cry all the time. I keep telling myself its irrational but it's not helping, also listen to meditation. This fear is so controlling. Does anyone have any advise.

So sorry for your loss Toosha. Have you given any thought to going on an anti-depressant for awhile until you stabilize?

I have thought of that. Its was very hard to find the right one last time, prozac almost killed me. I did try the one I was on years ago , and noticed it made nee overly sensitive, I found myself wanting to cry for no reason. This was before she died. I have a very low tolerance to medication so is hard.

I'm no doctor but you need some relief. Perhaps this is just your normal grieving process and time will be the best healer. I've had many years of help from taking Lexapro, an anti-depressant that is also good for anxiety.

Thank you so much! I will look into that one.

Hi Toosha! Just wanted to say I’m sorry for your loss and that I’m praying for you. My health anxiety started after losing my grandmother. It threw me into a tailspin that I’ve never been able to recover from. Grief is a terrible thing. Hoping you find something that gives you some relief!
