I am new here... I have anxiety and depression. I was going to a therapist and taking meds until last year. I slowly weaned off the meds and sadly my therapist moved. I was doing better overall. I have massive anxiety about my kids. I get this overwhelming fear that something horrible will happen to them. When my kids esp my son is sick I have horrible intrusive thoughts of the worst possible outcome. Winter is around the corner and all I think about is the flu and my kids getting sick with it. Its is so overwhelming, my chest hurts, I tremble, my stomach begins to hurt. It is paralyzing!!! I had two difficult pregnancies, my daughter was only given 50% chance of surviving, she had surgery she 4 days old. She is doing well thankfully now. It was however very traumatic. My son was born with cleft lip and palate. He has has three surgeries. He is prone to illness. He has has a slew of illnesses that scared me. I literally go off the deep end everytime he is sick because I think there is something worse.
Can anyone relate to my issues? I would love to find a group that could help me.
