DH is going away for business this week. I know it sounds silly but I'm really stressed about it. DD is 2 and I know I should be able to manage on my own but I suffer from anxiety and I'm making myself all anxious thinking about how I won't cope.
I feel so ridiculous, so many mums do it all by themselves and I'm so in awe of them; usually by the time DH gets home at 6:30pm I'm at the end of my rope and dying for some alone time. DD is a very forceful child, she's a terrible eater and throws a million tantrums a day. On top of that due to some health problems I'm easily fatigued and I find being with her all day exhausting.
Also I'm a very deep sleeper and if DD wakes at night DH usually hears her and will wake me up; I'm so worried she'll wake up and I won't hear her. She usually wakes because she hasn't eaten well and is hungry.
I know I'm overthinking it and I probably sound so pathetic. Does anyone have any advice or does anyone else feel like this at the prospect of being on their own with their child for a week, or is it just me?
