I'm currently suffering from anxiety and feeling low due to a long standing issue I have with regards to relationships! I'm doing all the right things to try and resolve this but just in the wars at the moment which is making me worry more than about things more than normal.
About 18 months ago my dad had a massive stroke when he was 63. All the doctors told us to expect the worst and they didn't think he would live. 18 months on he is doing great. Hes home, he can walk, he can feed himself and look after himself and also still do his hobby. The stroke has affected his brain and he does have problems with his speech and movement but other than that hes here and still with us.
For the last six month though I can't stop worrying about him and that he might die at any moment. It's like I'm on edge waiting for him to die because he had a stroke already. He may even be healthier than before his stroke due to losing weight and the meds he's on etc
Is it normal to worry about him like this? It's a bit selfish really because I worry what affect it will have on me if he does die? And will it be the final straw to push me over the edge and unable to cope with life anymore?
Have any of you lost parents whilst struggling with your mental problems? If so how did it affect you?
I know it's a morbid question but it's on my mind all the time. They aren't getting any younger and won't be around forever
