You need to try to do things for yourself as well as your kids. Get a hobby or something to take your mind off it all.

Kept myself busy, doing stuff, learning stuff, filled my head with new things, didn't give myself time for anxiety to creep in. I exercised a lot too and changed my diet.

I hate you are feeling this way. It is such a horrible feeling. I felt this way too and having kids just makes it worse because you want so badly to be enjoying them but inside you are just trying to survive. If all you can do today is breath. Then that is a victory. I myself am very hard on myself. I needed to give myself the license to be, "just ok" in the moment. It is hard to do and your mind can feel so flooded and overwhelmed with thoughts. Please keep posting. Let us know how you are doing.

Maggie, you are NOT going to die, I tell you, well not until you're an old lady of 95, let me explain why you have these bad feelings that make you think you're going to die any minute. It's quite normal to not want to die but when we suffer from high anxiety everything gets magnified ten times, so the normal wish to avoid dying becomes a huge fear, even an obsession and we stress about it again and again.

That's what's happened to you, the normal reluctance to die has been magnified into an obsession by your anxiety. But I repeat: you're NOT going to die so cease your worry, accept the strange ideas without fear when they come and I assure you your fears will pass.

Is it normal to be tired all time n whant to sleep still fell spaced out ma head

Yes, Maggie, feeling tired all the time is a very common symptom of high anxiety, hardly anyone hasn't felt it. All the stress and worry about dying are exhausting to your nervous system but always remember: this is your nerves playing tricks on you, nothing more, anxiety isn't life threatening and when eventually you overcome the fear that you are bombarding your nervous system with your mind and body will become calm once more.
