Hi Everyone, its my first time on a group. I want to share my story, and i hope you guys can support. I am a 37 year old male and i have never previously dealt with Anxiety, Grief or Depression.

It started in the beginning of last month when i had a sudden chest pain one evening, which caused me to call an ambulance and rush to Hospital. At the hospital different tests were performed (ECG and various Blood tests), and the doctor confirmed that all is good and it wasn't a heart attack, he then asked if i suffer from Anxiety to which i replied no, my wife next to me said yes, and i refused to agree that i do. The Dr then put me on medication for Acid Reflux.

Later during the same month, the chest pains recurred, and i started getting stomach illnesses as well. I then went to my GP, twice for stomach issues which really didn't go away, and i had to do some introspection and revealed to him that in November i lost my Dad through Cancer and my brother in-law who had a sudden heart attack.

The GP then confirmed that it was the cause for my physical problems, and put me on Anti-Depressants from last week.

I am constantly worried about my own health, it gets so bad at times where nothing is physically wrong but i feel overwhelmed... I wish i can go 100% back to being my old self.

Hey there. :) Sorry for everything you're going through. I agree with @CKBlossom that yoga and meditation should help. Also try to journal your thoughts/ feeling and what you'd like to accomplish and why you'd like to accomplish such.

Once you do that, figure out how you're going to accomplish it and make it a project perhaps. Keep in mind though that we all go through difficulties and challenges in life whether they're small or big changes. All of this is a phase and even though you dread it, it will end.

Wish you all the best! :)
