Hi B.N. and welcome.
I am so sorry to hear about your illness. I understand that gastritis can be very painful, and take awhile to fully recover from...so my healing thoughts and prayers go out to you!
It may take some time to fully come back to strength. You body and mind have been though a lot, so be patient with yourself and the process of recovering.
H.T. mentioned some great coping skills to try for relief of the anxiety/symptoms.:) Here is the link to our Resources for some more ideas along those lines!
Post with us anytime. We understand, care and are here to support you anytime!
