Our DD had a really rough start with silent reflux and other health problems. We went to sleep school at 4 months and started losec and things have been heaps better since but I still have lots of anxiety around her sleeping and feeding. It is making problems between my DH and me. I feel really alone in caring for her, he takes no interest in any of her problems, is just happy to be there for the 'fun stuff' but when she is crying or refusing to feed it is always my problem. I know how important it is for her to stick to a loose routine, but he is always telling me to chill out and relax. But when she gets overtired I am always stuck settling her!
I feel like a lot of my anxiety comes from feeling alone. My DH thinks I need medication. I am not sure, I feel like he just wants me to take pills so I can be happy rather than actually address any problems. I've booked an appointment with a counsellor next week. I don't know what to do in the meantime!
For those of you who have had anxiety - how did you know you needed medication? Did someone suggest it to you or did you realise it yourself?
I am so confused
