I am 43 yr old woman. I have had a very stressful life the past year and now I feel like I am drowning. I moved across the country from my parents. Also when I had to move, I left my beat friend behind that was dying of cancer. My friend died in January. I got married in July. My son left for college a month ago. I don’t know how to help myself?? Did I not grieve for my beautiful friend? Is it everything? I don’t know where to start.
I was a single mom for many years, so my son leaving has been extremely difficult. I have seen him since he has been gone. Went there one weekend and the whole weekend I was fixated on having to say goodbye.
I work in medicine and have a high stress job. I feel like I should be able to control this better.
It has been really bad lately. Constant feeling of butterflies in my stomach and I can’t eat. I can’t even smell food. When the butterflies come then comes an overwhelming panic that I have cancer. I am so afraid of getting cancer. I think about it everyday.
So yeah sorry for the rambling, I just want to get better.
Thank you

hi Chaser :welcome: 🌠 !

I think your high stress job does not mean
that you will be in good health
maybe quite the opposite !

have a read of peoples posts in here
especially ones similar to your issues

and then there are the fun parts of the forum
for chill out and debates, galleries and stuff

look forward to seeing you here

Hi Chaser,
Welcome to the forum,
I am sorry for your loss, yes do grieve your friend.
Must be hard having constant reminders.
Can you get any counselling thru work to help you cope with the stress.
Take care
