    Hi Guys,

    ive only came to the conclusion that I’ve suffered with anxiety for maybe the last 5-7 years? I believe it’s got a lot to do with my family, mainly my sister.

    she started out from an early age with an eating disorder, then onto uppers and Downers (prescribed by her doctor), a failed marriage because of her then addiction to prescription drugs, moving back in with my parents, becoming an alcoholic and ruining my parents lives.

    I don’t live there anymore, I live quite a bit away and I just feel that I’m doing enough, can’t help enough and that my parents can’t deal with her and I feel that it’s up to me to try and fix it and don’t know where to turn? I’ve tried so many things to help her and she just won’t accept it. It ruins my day because I can’t stop thinking about it and I get so worked up and can’t concentrate on work or enjoying my life.

    anyone got any tips???

    Hi, welcome

    Having an annoying even destructive relative in your life can take its toll on us. You have every right to your feelings on such matters.

    You seem to be dwelling on issues also. I know what that is like and it wears you down.

    Ok, let's talk about anxiety. The following threads may help. Just use search or google each of them and read the first post.
