I can't stop thinking about the fact that I might die soon

DEAR DEIDRE: MY daughter is calling me selfish because I can’t look after the grandchildren, but I’m so worried about my health.

I am a woman of 57 and some of the blood tests the GP did recently were not in the right range.

I went to A&E yesterday because I had stomach pains but they sent me home with some tablets for wind.

I was minding my granddaughters this morning but my ex-partner had to come and take over while I went to bed because I felt I was going to have a panic attack.

I’ve never had the best of health but the doctor has worried me so much.

I’m scared I might die.

DEIDRE SAYS: Take a deep breath and slowly breathe out. If you were going to die, your doctor would have been more alarmed.

You have been tested and you have been to the hospital. You are being treated with the most appropriate medication.
