Hi, I need help from other parents as I have seemed professional help and it's just not working..... I constantly worry my children are going to get sick. There is not one day that goes by I don't think this.
It all stems back to one of my children 4 years having 5 febrile convulsions in a matter of a few hours. We were 1st time parents thinking we are going to lose our child.
So from then on and slight niggling of sickeness turns my world upside down. I go into melt down, i need someone with me I just cannot function. God help it if they get a temperature - I go full on into a panic attack. I can't breathe, cannot even stand up.
It's awful - I hate it. I hate being like this.
A mother should be strong for her children.
What can I do to get this out of my head? I know kids get sick, I know they will have fevers (and they have had a few) but I just don't know how to control my thoughts.
