I'm new here!

I'm hoping to find people that I can relate to. A little about me....I am 27 years old and have 3 beautiful little boys with 1 baby on the way. All of my anxiety began after my second son was stillborn at 36 weeks of pregnancy. I did not get any help after this happened. All I was focused on was getting pregnant again because I wanted to hold a baby in my arms so bad after losing my precious son. I got pregnant again 4 months after I had him. A couple of weeks before my due date, I began to feel weird. I was constantly thinking about bad things that could happen during birth. I convinced myself that I was going to die. I started having heart palpitations during that time. After I had my son, he was sent to the NICU for low blood sugar. He was the largest baby in the NICU at 10 lbs 5 oz. I still can't believed I had a baby that large lol anyways, my palpitations began to get worse that week. I went to my primary doctor where she referred me to a heart specialist. He found nothing wrong with my heart, thank goodness. I was still having the symptoms though. Now I was feeling like I was in a fog, dizzy, worrying constantly. My doctor finally diagnosed me with PP depression. He started me on a low dose of Prozac, which I eventually went back for a higher dose. I know that I have anxiety along with the depression. My symptoms compared to other sufferers are exactly the same. I never in my life thought that anxiety could make a person feel this way. It sucks the enjoyment of life right out of you. The constant worrying, the new symptoms that I feel come every day, the constant urge to want to go to the doctor or hospital to make sure nothing is wrong. I feel like I'm losing my mind most days. I hope that I can find some relief with relating to others with anxiety on this site and learn ways to cope.

  • Jamie I know how horrific anxiety can be to deal with but once you learn how to accept the free floating anxiety and it's symptoms, it will float by you without going into panic mode. Breathe....You're okay
