Beverly M. Davis's Expert Contributions
I am always anxious and have been this way for the last 7 years. What can I do to get a break from this anxiety?
It sounds like you are connecting your current anxiety to the loss of your mother, and that is certainly possible. You may have lost more than just your relationship with her, such as a life routine that included her and things related to her. The psychological treatment of anxiety often takes time. There are probably multiple sources of anxiety such as unresolved grief. When a parent dies the hope of the kind of loving and nurturing relationship that we long for dies also. If we have mixed feelings about the parent that passes, which is ALWAYS the case with our mothers, then it can be difficult to allow anger, disappointment, and resentment to rise to the surface because such feelings can be experienced as disloyal. Anxiety can also come up because you have lost a sense of being connected in the world that being in relationship with your mother provided. Finally, although psychotherapy is helpful in resolving these issues, other approaches can also be needed, such as learning some basic trauma concepts about staying present in your body and learning how to stay grounded in your everyday life. These skills can take some practice, but they are worth learning because they provide support when you encounter other life challenges. READ MORE
