      I am feeling so extremely depressed and anxious about both of my parents. I worry about them so much and I always try to make them feel better. I always think something terrible will happen to either parent. I sometimes want to move out to start a new independent life but then i think about who will take care of my parents ( even though they don’t need anyone to take care of them!) my family has been having issues lately so this has only worsened my worry. does anyone have the same issues of continual worrying about loved ones even though nothing may be wrong or when something does go wrong the worrying turns into extensive depression and anxiety. I also tried contact family counselling services for family for help. What should I do?

      Hi Dora!

      Without knowing anything about the specific context of your post or your situation, it seems as though anxiety is at the heart of it. Some advice I would offer is that you have to take care of yourself first. So, rather than family counseling, I might suggest you arrange to have a chat with a therapist who can help you understand what is causing it and how to treat it.

      If family counseling is the right path, they can help you find those resources. However in my experience, it’s best to start by focusing on your own needs and build from there.
