Melodee my Mom passed away last week. My anxiety was thru the roof, not as much because of my sweet Mom, but because of a very stubborn sister. I was so worried that she was going to put her needs ahead of my Mom's. Luckily she saw the light and heard the doctors, and we were able to make an amicable decision about my Mom. But I sure had to use my Xanax just about every day just to carry on. You are so right, we just need to take one step at a time.
Oh by the way, my husband and I bought a small fountain for our bedroom. I love the sound of the water, and it helps to drown out alot of sound. And it is soooo relaxing. Just a thought!
