Hi there I understand your concern and anxiety... This is not abnormality its common to react in a way you are doing when our loved ones fall sick...you will become better eventually...fallow relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation,avoid alcohol, smoking, coffee, tea...have good sleep and develop healthy food habits..I wish your father speedy recovery.. If it's bothering you too much Consult physician psychiatrist.
