About 7 months ago my brother (who is a drug addict but clean now)was really messed up on all kinds of drugs and actually went into a psychotic state where my parents had to have him committed against his will, which actually worked in his favor because he has been clean now for 7 months. My problem is when he was going crazy he called me at 4:00 am because he was arrested and I could not help him and he called me over and over and over. Then after he got out of jail in the morning he continued to call me for days saying all kinds of crazy things. I had terrible anxiety because of that, especially about the phone ringing early in the morning. Since he has been clean my anxiety has calmed down but just recently for no reason the anxiety has started up. I have to keep the phone with me at all times but I really don't want it to ring. I worry he is going to go back to drugs or something is going to happen to my dad, he works nights. Why can't I stop this anxiety. I really have no reason right now for it so what happened? Why do I worry so much about other people?? I wish I could just concentrate on my own life instead of worrying about everyone else's life!! Thanks for listening and sorry for the long post!! Just needed to talk.
