I'm really sorry you're experiencing such anxiety. Moming can be hard enough as it is, but remember, despite your anxiety, you're truly doing a great job! Have you considered getting into therapy? I started 16 months ago because of my anxiety and desire to be healthy for my children. So I encourage you to lean into that desire you have as well. Our health is one of the greatest gifts we can give our children. Wrestle with that anxiety and don't let it win. Take care mama.
