User :   Hello, this is regarding situational anxiety. I've had this since Jan 19th, when my Nephew was incarcerated, but I guess I was not realizing my uoset prior either. My husband had to step in to help me with the kids, so he has been home alot. Being my nephew will be released early friday morning, I am hoping this hurt will go away. My husband in anger said to me, "what makes you so sure you will just get better?" I have had situations and anxieties over seperation. And when the situation stopped, the anxiety got better. I was hoping for some brief advice, as I am hoping for the easy recovery in a few days. I won't lie, I have essentially cocooned myself. I have my Xanax, but have not used it, I feel I simple coasted. To explain my nephew further, he opted for jail, like an idiot and he went into a shell shock the second he got in that day. He was placed on suicide watch. He is only 20, I got him a private Doctor and a lawyer, he was then medicated and able to cope, and moved to minimum security. However, I didnt feel the "hero", I'm feeling very hurt over this. I caught the virus, I told everyone I was grateful for it, because the pain went physical while I was sick. Thank You - RGG :)

Doctor :   Are you symptomatic due to valve prolapse ?

Doctor :   ok,
User :   I felt depressed that it was 37 days, then I got through this. Now I am nervous for myself as I dont want to relapse
User :   I know most Doctors know about Anxiety, so I figured I should ask.
