Just Had the first birthday since the death of my dad but because of the reason still feeling of angry I am really find it difficult to not concentrate on his injuries and they way in which he died I am finding it’s taking over my whole thinking I am scared every time someone goes out I can’t book a holiday as can’t be to far from home I have experience anxiety like I have never experienced in my life I just can’t keep going on with people saying it’s grief I know that but how do you deal with the trauma of the event it’s just a shit place to be in it’s just so raw
So this week have family coming to stay the whole idea of this is filling me with dread don’t do very well with people around but feel I need to as my family are suffering due to my behaviour
Back to work Monday as had week off and that is just bring up very mixed feelings not sure I can manage it at the moment it’s just a circle of what’s best keeping busy or taking time for ourselves
Spent last 4 days in bed with flu give me a break cyprus

Hi Cyprus, I'm so sorry for your loss and for what you're experiencing. Losing some one you love is just impossibly awful sometimes.
Anxiety was a big problem for me during the first year after losing someone. Grief and everything else didn't go away but the anxiety did get better. My anxiety symptoms improved with treatment (Dr/medication/specific counselling etc) but it wasn't easy.
As you say, you are in a shit place to be right now, I think it's right and honest that you acknowledge that, and try to take care of yourself as much as you can.

All the best,

V
