View Full Version : Anyone feel full on anxiety?
I have just realised that I could have a problem...an anxiety problem. The question is - is this normal is this a hormonal thing - and will my anxiety fade when I stop brestfeedin or what?! I am making myself sick with anxiety that my little 5 month old is sick or going to die or that I will die.... I have this foreboding feeling like the grim reeper is hanging over me and my family occasionally - which will take one of us away. It hits me for a couple of hours and i feel sick and then Im fine and happy etc normal for a few days and then bam... I have a headache and think im gunna die. I keep thinkin that maybe its my intuition - then i think maybe its just hormones - a natural defense mechanism? I desperately want to run to the hospital and get an MRI scan and bloods done for me and my baby. Am I nuts? Anyone feel the same?
I suffer from anxiety too, but my anxiety isn't really focussed on my children's health - more about social situations etc...
What you are describing doesn't sound normal. It must be very stressful and draining to feel like that often :hugs:
Could you have a chat with your baby health nurse or GP and see if maybe they think some counselling or CBT or medication might help you?
i get quite anxious and stressed and when i feel a change i take some st johns wort. it helps calm my levels down with out having to take something stronger... i am also a therapy paitent and have regular checks with my gp to make sure it doesnt get out of hand. My best advice is talk to your gp!
Yes I have the same feeling
I have two children DD is 3 years and DS is 1.
I have only started feeling that way since I have had my son.
Its the worst feeling cause sometimes Im fine then I will panic and feel dizzy and think Im going to die or something.
when my son was born I had him at the hospital nearly once a week for just silly little stuff.
I had a huge anxiety attack and thought I was having a heart attack. It was horrible
I'm getting better now sort of but I just stressed something is going to happen and the kids are at home buy themselves.
I just wanna feel normal and not have these feelings.
But I don't know what to do
Hi i had anxiety about this time last year. I would get dizzy and short of breath (and think i was dying) for no apparent reason. I went to my gp and was prescribed Zoloft and went to counseling which both helped i was off my meds within 3 months and haven't had it since. I think as others have said you should go to your gp and try to sort it out, it will get better.
I had this from the day Ds was born, i still to this day suffer from panic attacks, but i am lexapro, to help them, and also haven't had a bad one since i started them. Your not nuts :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:
I suffer from panic attacks :thumbsdown:
they have gotten worse/more frequent with pregnancy and I dont understand why. In the past certain things/situatons bought an attack on but now they hit anytime/any place.. it's horrible :(
Toady i had another bad panic attack and went to the doctors
He spoke to me and prescribed me Zoloft

Im nevours to take them
