I'm in a phase of enormous anxiety and serious depression as I approach the sixth anniversary of the loss of my daughter and only child to mental illness. The past months I have been struggling with a health issue that isn't dangerous but has made me very anxious and now my emotional state is very, very bad. I was a wonderful mother, I fought my daughter's war with her every step of the way, I never let her down once, not once. But I am obsessing over the things I could have done differently, I can't stop doing this. I know there was nothing I could have done but I am punishing myself every day and I don't know what to do. My therapist just keeps telling me how sick she was and my psychiatrist doesn't seem to have any advice. Has anyone else ever struggled with self blame even when there was no reason for it? And what did you do to stop? TY for any help.
