Thank you for your question.
I am sorry to hear about your grandpa.
If aneurysms formed due to applying pressure when passing stool there would be millions of people getting aneurysms of the brain, which is not the case.
It is EXTREMELY UNLIKELY for someone to get an aneurysm in the way that you have mentioned.
I would recommend taking as much fiber as you can in your diet to soften up your stool and to increase the stool bulk so that you can pass it more easily.
I would also recommend taking as many fluids as you can everyday.
I think that it is your anxiety that is getting the better of you.
