Can anyone relate to me?

My grandmother and guardian of 20 years died a month ago. Since she passed I have felt a whole range of different physical feelings. My doctors call it stress. My stress is entirely physical, though. Well, it starts out with a feeling of nausea, and then I begin to worry about what my body is doing, and it becomes a snowball effect. My grandmother died of heart failure. I think my underlying fear is the same thing happening to me. These feelings I get, I feel like my body is failing. It can last for hours, or in two cases it went on for days. I went in to the hospital two times because I was worried. My tests came back showing I was in good health. And that relives me. I'll do fine for a couple of days and then the feelings will set on again.

I'm asking if anyone else has been through this kind of stress? In my head, I think I'm doing alright; I trying to move on, but my body seems to think differently. I think hearing from someone else who has been through this will help me.

Thank you,
David

Re: Can anyone relate to me?

David,

What you are experiencing is very normal. You are grieving and have come "face to face" with mortality. When someone close to us dies, we become aware that we too will die one day. I went through the same thing when my mom, dad, and husband died. I seemed to develop symptoms and worries that I would get the same illness that took them. You might want to check with your doctor or minister about grief counseling. It might help to be able to talk about it with others who are dealing with the same feelings. Hang in there and take care
