Q & A with Bernie – July 6, 2015

Question for Bernie:

Hello Bernie,

Many years ago you helped me with some anxiety over being abandoned, regarding my mother, when I was an infant.  Thank you for that.

I’m 62 and my husband died a year ago. He either had a heart attack or stroke at the wheel of his car. About three months ago, I started getting scared and full of anxiety.  Up until then I was okay.  Now I think of physical symptoms and I’m twitching all over, so I think I have bad neurology disease.  Then I looked up stuff on Google and really scared myself.  I miss my husband so much.

Why am I concentrating so much on My body?  I thought you might have some thoughts.  I have been sober for 34 years.  I went to the doctor and he gave me Ativan, but I won’t take it.  I heard it is addictive.  I wish I could calm down and forget myself.  Thanks for listening.

Bernie’s Answer:

Your husband’s spirit is still with you.  Be observant and look for signs of his presence. Ask for his help, and quiet your mind.

I have a little book, Buddy’s Candle. I highly recommend that you get it and read it. You can order through my website www.berniesiegelmd.com.  Scroll down the Home Page and look at the right-hand column for our Wisdom of the Ages bookstore, click, and order through them.

Think of your mind as a pond.
When the water is still, the truth is seen by reflection.
When the water is turbulent, the truth isn’t visible.
