My girl is almost two (full of beans & is very demanding), i own my own business (so work is constant), just moved to a new area, no friends with babies, and family certainly do not live close.
Life is certainly pushing me to my limits. I feel I had managed it quite well previously, but mind you I was also enjoying the occasional drink and smoke. But now I am completely smoke free (almost 6 months, yay!), and drink rarely! My body and baby thank me everyday, (not that I ever smoked near her, in case you were wondering) but now my tolerance is much lower for frustrating situations, I worry I won't find other mums that understand me, I worry constantly about silly things, I am snappy, constantly tired, stressed, tense and my heart skips a beat or flutters occasionally when I am highly strung or even when I'm trying to rest. I am fairly fit and very active. But I do find I cannot keep still sometimes, and it's incredibly hard to relax.
I am certain i have anxiety of some form and would like to see a GP. And I am curious if any others out there have experienced similar symptoms? And how do you or have you overcome this?
I hope you can provide some informative perspectives for me, it would be nice not to feel so lonely!
Thank you in advance. X
