    Hi. Please do not suffer in silence, go to the doctors today thats what they are there for. I am not an expert on anxiety as I am only a recent victim of it myself but it sounds like your dads death has triggered all sorts of worries and upset for you, understably so. There is the grief of actually losing a loved one, but also the fact that it heightens the sense of your own mortality. You are debilitating yourself and spoiling the life that you have the chance of living. You owe it to yourself to go to the doctors and get help. They may be able to refer you for some counselling which may be all you need to get your head around what happened to your dad and start to live your life again. Even though you may not feel like it, also try and spend a lot of time with people who make you feel happy. Thats what I do and it really helps. If it helps, I do not feel like I really know who I am at the moment due to a stressful time in my own life, but i hope to soon. I have hope, my friend gave me some good advice, he said "everything is temporary". And i focus on that. I know that i wont feel like this forever, or I will have better tools I can use to deal with my feelings. Good luck with everything x

    I've vern the same way since I got my first panick attack last year. I constantly check my bp and every weird lump I feel in my body increased my anxiety as I automatically fear the worst. Hope we all find a cure soon. I just wanted to let you know that you're not alone

      Thank you so much I thought it was just me that felt this way , its such an awful feeling and wish it would go away but I think the worst all the time . Back in june I had to go for a mammogram but thank god what I thought was a lump was checked and it turned out to be a prominent milk duct but my aniexty is even worse since then. I dont think of anything else n its awful

      Yes as hard as we might try to stay positive it seems the worst thoughts are the ones that always win. I know exactly how you feel even after my ekg came out normal I still fear that I might have heart issues since my anxiety is always messing with my bp
