Question for 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.
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.
