I need a little advice from people who've been where I have. My little girl Kiara was born three months premature, she spent four months in the NICU two hours away from home. She still eats through a mickey-button/feeding tube, because she can on;y handle about hald an ounce a day orally. Over all things are looking up for Kiara's condition...

I on the other hand have been emotionally stressed, and worried about all the time I've taken off for Kiara's certian medical needs, I'm not able to make ends meet with my paychecks, just barely managing, but I'm still managing. Its put a lot of stress on me though. I've been getting upset more and more every day, and I usually end up breaking down about twice a week now, where everything gets to me, and I can't stop crying. It all just is so overwhelming for me at certian times that I can no longer handle it all. I freak out so to speak...

I've talked to my boyfriend about going to see a doctor, to see if I can get something for anxiety because I'm tired of yelling at him all the time and taking it out on him. But he got angry with me and said he doesn't want to see me hiding behind a pill...

I'm curious as to how many of you take something for anxiety, and if you don't, why did you make that choice? I need advice, its been over a year since Kiara was born, and I handled most of that very well, surprisingly well, I don't even know how I made it through that year without freaking out like I am now...
