I was reading online about  awful night mares and I stumbled upon anxiety causing bad dreams like I have been having. I will go weeks with one or two hours of sleep a night becaue of the night mares. I was looking and anxiety symptoms and I have every one of the social ones and sleep ones and a lot of the other ones. Do any of you have anxiety and handle it without meds? I dont have insurance or the money to go see someone or I would becasue It is really affecting my life and my marriage and how I am treatiing my kids.

Yes. I have anxiety and deppresion but my anxiety creeped back up this week hard! I'm 27 weeks pregnant and situational fear has caused me to NEED to be on something but being pregnant perscription meds aren't an option plus I don't like them. I'm taking Calmes Forte for my anxiety and since it's homiopathic it's safe for all, they even make one for children under 6!

I have actually had it for months but only took it once a week or even every two for sleep or on a really stressful day. Normally when my anxiety is low I just use rescue remedy but when you need more than that the calmes forte is great. It's the only safe but effective natural thing I've found so far that's ok during pregnancy and it's non addictive and safe for daily or once in a while use.

The nice thing about calmes forte is even with chronic problems it works within 2-5 days when taken 3 times a day. Also you don't always have to be on it...when you need it daily you take it but if you don't you can just keep it on hand and take as needed.

B vitamin complex has helped me. Of course step 1 should always be getting plenty of exercise daily and a healthy diet free processed foods and additives, but those things don't alleviate your symptoms, then look into supplements.

Essential oils helped me, my Husband and Sister.
Do your research and make sure you get high quality oils

Roman Camomile
Melissa (lemon balm)
Bergamot
Lavender

These are some of my favorites. They calm attacks very quickly

There are also blends made specially for anxiety. Google it

It is aroma therapy so you are not ingesting it. You defuse the oils into air, massage in your skin ( after dilution) or just smell out of bottle they effect the brain and almost instantly help you relax. I have read a ton of book on them but I by no means am an expert or professional. I would still do research about if its 100%safe. I dont see,why it wouldnt,,be

Most oils are safe while breastfeeding. Some can decrease supply. The other caution is to avoid oils that are unsafe for children.

Oh, and you don't want to massage them into your nipples where baby can ingest (though if you're not using them for nipple health, I don't know why you would).
