How do you deal with the anxiety of going back to work?

I have been a stay at home mom for the first 6 months of my sons life, and now I'm starting a new job. I don't know how to handle it.

  • CIO...LOL thats what I did. It is hard, but you get used to it...spend every minute with him when you get home and clean when he goes to bed.

  • Its really hard, the first day especially, but gets easier every day after. I would wake up in the the middle of the night and BAWL weeks before I went back. It will be OK though, I promise.

  • Take a deep breath, rely on God and your personal strength.
    It will not be easy, but keep in mind that you are performing a necessity and it is for the best of your child.
    I wish you all the best.
