A little background; I have struggled with anxiety for years. I was always a real shit as a teenager. Always depressed about something stupid and a bit unmotivated. I'm not sure I would classify that as anxiety, but I do struggle with it nowadays. For the most part I get my panic attacks when I have to go to social functions. Weddings, holidays, play dates depending on my comfort level with the person..I usually have a hard time swallowing and have to try my hardest to take deep breaths and my stomach gets all funny. With Max's program starting and his birthday party today I actually broke down in tears and told DH today that I can't handle the struggle anymore and that I want to see a therapist. I do not think anxiety meds are an option for me because I BF, but what else can I do? I don't want to have to try so hard all the time to catch my breath and its getting in the way of things that should be enjoyable.
