Contestant fear of health issues


I had a baby 7 months ago since then I've been in constant fear that something is wrong with me. I suffer from anxiety panic attacks and ptsd(from an abusive relationship years ago) I worked with A lot of things but ever since having my baby my anxiety has increased I am seeing a counselor and I a psychiatrist has me on Luvox(25 mg) I've very sensitive to ssri's and I'm in 5 mg of burspar. I've had my heart check out by a cardiologist been to the er 3 times this year thinking I'm dieing now my acid reflux is acting up horrible. I don't know what to do I can't stop the thoughts of me dieing or something being wrong with me. I'm going to see a gi dr today. But is anyone else like this. I have a 2 year old and 7 month old and work from home I have responsibilities and this anxiety is driving me crazy

I've been going through this for 4 months. I keep thinking God is telling me I'M gonna die and I live in torment. I have an eight month old, 4, 14, and 16 along with three step children. I'm so scared and feel like no one understands. Everyone says it's in my head but if it was I could get over it. I don't wanna die and I'm so scared and not ready. Zoloft is doing nothing for me!!!!!!!

I completely understand I feel like the Luvox isn't working for me I'm going to talk to my dr tomorrow to try and see if we can come up with something else. I'm going to a GI doctor today to see what exactly is going on with me

Wow You just described everything I'm going through! I'm also a mother my baby is also 7 months old, My acid reflux is also acting up big time. I'm constantly thinking I'm gonna die too. I feel like I can't work. Ugh you seriously said everything I'm also dealing with

I hope we both fun relief soon

It's a huge responsibility being a parent alone. But being a parent WITH ANXIETY can be overwhelming. I'm going through this right now, as my son is 2 years old. It's hard to deal with because my husband just doesn't get it. It's a little bit of relief to know that there are other moms out here suffering. Sad at the same time, it's such a huge monster to deal with. Let's all keep holding on to hope.

Yes hope is all I have right now bc I know there has to be an answer for all of this
