songbird7812 Posted August 14, 2013 Report Share Posted August 14, 2013 Hi, I am new to this group. I have lived with my mother the past six years and took care of her. She passed away August 4, less than a week after my brother-in-law's funeral. I have always been extremely close to my mom; as one woman told me at church, she was my soulmate. Now that she is gone, I of course miss her terribly. She was my life. Is it a normal thing that I now have panic attacks? It has been happening to me every evening. I get very little sleep due to the anxiety. During the day, I seem to handle things better. There is a new grief support group at my church. I would like to go, but I am afraid that if I get started thinking about things before bedtime, my panic attacks may get even worse. I tend to take on everyone else's problems also, so that might be too much for me right now. Has anyone else experienced problems with this? I am going to have many decisions to make and I know this is weighing on me. But I am not in a good position to make those decisions right now. Thank you for listening.
