    :sad: i'm having anxiety attacks constant this afternoon and evening. feel an overwhelming sense of doom, fear that my grandma (mom for all intensive purposes) is going die and leave me behind like my dad and grandfather did. she says shes "fine" but all i feel is this overwhelming sick feeling like shes gonna be taken next. can't sleep, just keep checking on her to make sure shes okay.

    Hey.. I'm so sorry, anxiety attacks are so miserable to experience.

    Maybe try talking to her about how nervous you are? I hate anxiety so much, but sometimes it seems more manageable when I talk it out with someone I trust.

    hang in there!

    Anxiety is tough to control and miserable to live with. Anxiety can be lowered temporarily by reassurance and checking but then the need for reassurance and the need to check can become insatiable. There are many behavioral modification techniques that people with OCD use that are initially more anxiety producing but eventually effective in making anxiety much less severe.
