I feel a lot more calm today. My chest is aching in the middle and it’s kind of got me on edge. I’m trying to think rationally. I’ve been so anxious the past week I’m sure it’s likely from holding my body so stiff and tight and not the fears I’ve been worrying and obsessing about. I can breathe fine and my heart rate is good. It just kind of feels like there’s trapped air or like I got hit in the chest.

anon, there's going to be a lot of curved balls thrown your way as your
body adjusts to the different movements in holding the baby, lifting the baby and etc. The good thing is that as the baby starts gaining weight, your body will get use to that change and adapt to it.
Things that new moms don't even think of will build your stamina over time. xx
I’ve had chest tightness for months now even I take a deep breath feels tight and can’t catch the satisfying breath but doctor has checked my heart and he said it’s fine also breathing feels weird with tight throat I’m guessing anxiety can last Months everyday without going the minute I wake up to the minute I go to sleep
Frazzled nerves & a tired brain are behind all those weird anxiety symptoms. A fellow sufferer Paul David wrote a small book , At last a Life . He explains everything about anxiety & this causes all your fears to start to lessen , less fear , less anxiety !!
I was one of those that said it will work for everyone but me . Over 15 years later I still have my Xanax that had turned to powder.
A few tips my friend gave me for my anxiety:
1) Dissect the panic physically and emotionally (so where do you feel
It and why do you feel it?)
2) Remember your values (you’re loved, you are enough you are capable and you are
3) Act on those values (do something like a task that will allow you to come back into the present moment and take u away from the future and past you may panic on ....dance or draw or just jam along to your fav music)
4) you are not alone. There are so many people going through similar problems. Remember you have a support network here and a therapist (when you get one) you can talk to them this is a safe space.
5) Stay respected. Do not allow others negativity to bring you down. Keep your vibes positive and reflect on how
Your behaviour affects others and how theirs affects you.
Lots of love, hope you manage to get through these tough times x
