What do I do now?

I found out something last night and now I am feeling SO guilty. My baby brother (though he’s a whole person taller than I) lives Interstate. He not only decided that he wanted to come over to our state for his birthday (goodness knows why) Then again the other thing I found out might explain it a bit more. I found out as well that he’s been having mini panic attacks…Now I’m starting to worry that it’s because of myself that he’s starting to have them.

Although I don’t smoke…and I’m not a man

Have I been talking about it too much?

Now my partner is kind of making fun, because both sides of my family have suffered from anxieties. My mums side, mainly the women (as far as I know) around my age have all had issues, BUT, we’ve also “overcome” them. Or at least learned how to cope with them. My Dads side, not so much. They’re all addicts. They’re all still alive though. With numerous health issues, but still here.

I just feel guilty right now. I don’t want to stop from talking about it, but I don’t want to give people anxieties either.

I think that I’m going to buy him a bunch of fruit…Maybe some tea too.

I bought and sent him some fancy tea things with Chamomile.

  1. My dear, sweet, friend. You are a good sister for being so concerned for your brothers well-being, however; you cannot blame yourself! You have nothing to feel guilty for. You are putting way too much pressure on yourself, which if your anything like me, only aids to your stress which will raise your anxiety. Slow down, deep breath! You are no use to anyone if you are in bad shape too.

    I have a very close friend and a cousin who both battle with anxiety, but we’ve learned to lean on each other. I find that talking about it to people who have gone through it helps a little more, because they really do understand. Maybe you and your brother can come to an understanding that if it gets to be too much, both of you will speak up and say “I’m sorry, It’s a bad day for me too, I can’t deal with this right now.” I don’t know him or you, really, and I don’t mean to step on toes, just trying to help. Hope you have a good day!

    1. I wanted to sit down properly and properly respond to this comment…Sorry, it’s taken so long ❤ Thank you so much for your very kind comment! This is something that I've also struggled with, pretty much all my life as well! ❤ I put a lot on myself, worrying about others all the time. I thought I had lost it though! You are totally not stepping on any toes, he loved the tea that I sent him. I'm not sure he believed me though when I said "Just cause"lol
