    Hi Gerty and welcome. I’m sorry you’re struggling. Have you seen your doctor? Are you on medication, having any talking therapy etc? What support do you have? Sorry for all the questions ...
    Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best.

    I've seen doctor and was on medication but took me off as was doing more harm than good. Hopefully start therapy soon but not sure it will help as had lots of things happen in the past and now. I do have a wonderful husband who is doing his best but I feel it should be the other way round as he is undergoing tests on his heart so I'm really struggling at the moment

    Hi and welcome to DWD. I'm sorry you're having such a hard time at the moment. Have you told your husband that you are struggling?
    Today I aim to be the best person I can be.
    That mean that yesterday or tomorrow I might be a better person,
    but today's best is more than good enough for today.

    That's brilliant. It's always good when you have someone you can talk things over with. Have you ever talked to him or a medical professional about how you are feeling or your worries?

    But have you spoken to your husband about your fears?

    Hi Gerty, as Suzi says have you spoken to your husband about how you feel because I think it'll help rather than bottling it up which in itself creates anxiety and stress.
    71 and counting, less of the "Old" call me "Mike"
