Flashbacks

My dad died from cancer 8 months ago and he was on a ventilator. I keep having nightmares and now I feel very tight chested and afraid to become like my dad. I am so terrified.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Something similar is actually what I believe triggered my anxiety. Two people I know died of cancer this year and it seems to have sent me into a tailspin. I also wake up with nightmares and can't breath. I have panic attacks at all times of the day and night.
I hope that you can find some relief, best wishes!
