I have been dealing with very intrusive anxiety, centered around my two children (5 and 3) and something happening to them. Specifically, I obsess over one of them being killed in a school shooting. With the Anniversary of the tragedy at Sandy Hook being Tmw I feel like it’s getting worse.
I never really thought medication would help, bc I don’t think this is due to a chemical imbalance. Ive always been “a worrier”, for as long as I can remember. Just now, as a Mom, my worries are so much bigger, and constant.
Has anyone started medication for intrusive anxiety, and had it help?
