I have GAD, depression, and diabetes. The GAD has been under control for a while with Paxil 60mg a day and buspar 60 mg a day. However, I have been having diarrhea for about 3-4  weeks now and don't know if it's related to my diabetes drug or not, but know my depression/anxiety hasn't helped the matter either.
I do not know what to do. A dearly beloved friend of mine has just moved away (actually left today but had been in the moving process for a week or two) and you would think that he died the way I am grieving it. I cry everyday and feel sick and anxy. My problem with the diarrhea has only compounded my overall feeling of illness. I am tired both mentally/emotionally and physically. It takes all I can do to get through each day. My mom (we live together) has a hard time dealing with me being like this naturally and that contributes to my anxiety. She gets emotional. Sometimes acts sad and sometimes even angry at me. I am a mess.
Why can't I get over my friend's leaving. I can email him, phone him, skype, etc., but it doesn't seem to make any difference in my stupid mind!
Who am I?
I'd like to know.
Would you?

Hello and good to see you . I am so sorry about your friend moving away and I wonder if that is not the cause of some of your physical problems.

When you lose a close relationship, you are likely to feel great sorrow and heartache.

Most people go through this experience at some point in their lives. But the challenges posed by such a deep loss can be turned into opportunities, enabling you to not only survive, but also thrive. Learn to understand your feelings and develop tools to cope with your friends moving away from you.

Grief is a normal and healthy response to the loss of your friend's presence in your daily life, not an illness. Its symptoms are painful, but they serve an adaptive purpose. Most grief runs its course with the support of your friends/family. Coming here talking about your feelings is a good way to deal with the loss of this friend through his moving away.

I know you can still talk with him but not having the physical relationship where you can see him and do things together feels sad for you so let your feelings out and know we are here for you janetlee.

As for Mother, she will be ok and do not feel any guilt for reacting the way that you are to this person's moving away.

Many hugs and hope you post a poem here for us.
