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.
