Going crazy, lie to family & friends. Lost my husband. How to change?

I think I am going crazy. I lie to my family and friends . I am not sure why. My family was just here and said I dont let them into my thoughts. I have lost my husband to kidney failure last week. My family said I don't show emotion until I get "upset". I think they are right. I fear for my future. Even my 97 year old mother told them I am too busy doing what I want to come to visit with her. She is right. I am sorry but the truth does hurt. I want to change but dont know how to start.

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Welcome to health care magic
I can understand your situation. I appreciate your effort to seek online support.

As per your details, you are possibly having underlying anxiety/depression/grief reaction. For this consult a psychiatrist for detailed evaluation. Following treatment strategies would be helpful-

1) Antidepressants like SSRIs (escitalopram, sertarline, paroxetine etc)
2) Antianxiety agents like clonazepam, lorazepam, alprazolam etc
3) Psychotherapy/ Counselling sessions
4) Relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation, deep breathing etc

Hope it helps
Good luck
