Hi, I am a sahm of 2 boys 4 month old Matthew, almost 4 yr old Cristian.  I have suffered from anxiety for many many years.  I have run the gammat of seeing a thearpist, to taking meds, to taking herbal remedies......now that I am nursing and 4 months postpartum I am not taking anything and I have started to have my anxiety creep back into my life. I did notice with my 2 pregnancies while being pregnant, the hormones kept me calm.  So now I am back to square one.  Just curious to see who is in this group hoping to connect and give/get support.  My anxiety mainly manifests itself when I have to be out of my element...pretty much means anything that is out of my control......

I can identify with some symptoms of agoraphobia, but I can and do leave the house all the time.  I don't like going long distances and I rarely do...been feeling really anxious lately and just hope to connect....


Thanks,

L

Im so sorry you have not been welcomed to the group yet. Hello and welcome my names crystal and i have 3 kids. Your symptoms sound alot like mine, if im put in a helpless situation or a situation in which i am not in control i lose control and my anxiety takes over. I have in the past refused a very needed surgery at the last minute, refused antibiotcs for a severe infection and have made horrible decisions because of anxiety. I have labled myself my own worst enemy. But now i relize when anxiety is creeping its ugly head and i tell myself not to beleive it, its not real,i pray to make the right decision and now i ussually do. In the past though i risked my own life from an artificial fear of dying. If you need anything feel free to post. God bless
