Does having time to "relax" make you anxious?

Yesterday was my last day of work...I am now on leave until the baby is born. the whole point was for me to be able to relax, put my feet up, and get more sleep. (I have toxemia again)

However, I feel like I am forgetting things left and right because I am seriously not used to sitting still. I've done my homework, a load of laundry, breakfast, lunch, trash, and picked up the living room, but every time I sit down, I feel like there is something I should be doing.

I am so not used to this! Yikes! Does it get better?!

  • Nope. I always feel that way. I am a student and mother of a two year old. It is hard for me to sit still even after the house is clean, my homework is done, and everything on the to-do list is checked off. I cant even sit and play with my daughter some days because I get anxious feeling like I am choosing it over holding the house together. It makes no sense and is bad for you. If you find a cure then PM me with it! I understand. It wears you out!
