I'm having a hard time with anxiety. I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) (got it when my older son died 15 years ago) and it's been ok with the help of my anti-depressant, but lately whenever I talk to difficult child or have to talk to someone else about him, my heart just pounds....I get agitated and I can't calm down usually for a half hour or more. This is scary because I had breast cancer last year (am fine now), plus I have high blood pressure which is usually ok with medication. I know this isn't good for me. I am seeking more therapy and stepping up my exercise, plus my psychiatrist says I can increase my anti-depressant - but am wondering if anyone else experiences this after dealing with their difficult child?
