je ne parvenais même pas à m'inquiéter.

Could someone please help me? According to my dictionary parvenais comes from the verb parvenir meaning:- to reach, to go to or to manage and I do not see how any of these fit into this phrase.

The full sentence is « J’étais indiciblement heureux de l’avoir retrouvé, je ne parvenais même pas à m’inquiéter. »

My attempt at this is
I was inexpressibly happy to have found her, I did not even worry about it.
