Hiya I'm 26 years old and nearly 6 years ago when my son was 6 months old i had a ruptured ovarian cyst and internal bleeding I also caught MRSA so healing took a lot longer than usual since then I started to suffer with anxiety, depression and ocd which kind of took over my life I was given anti depressants but always have a problem takin tablets in any case so doctor sent me for group counselling which helped for a short while then a few yrs later I fell pregnant and had some health problems during which set the anxiety bk off and had a bad time during labour and the birth , after my 2nd son was born the ocd and anxiety returned cleaning excessively all the time nd had rto do things in certain orders and when he was jus under one yr old I fell pregnant with my daughter and also had more health issues at 37.5 wks I was induced due to high bp and 3 days later she was born not long after I started feeling very anxious and would sit and cry a lot at simple things and soon the ocd also came bk now my daughter is 11 month old and I've been referred bk to counselling and cbt I am really struggling to cope with these issues everything I do is very repetitive like washing my hands before bed 6 times, kids toys need to be in a certain order cleaning door handles and stair banisters I also am very anxious if I get the slightest unwell feeling I think the worsy and start to feel dizzy, sick and short of breath and the breathing thing scares me to death thinkin I got some serious illness or dying. Another problem is between my pregnancies certain foods made me ill inc fish, beef,, gravy and veg so even now I still stay away from them foods now I'm restricted on what I eat incase i get ill . I just wanna be best mum I can be and these issues r rly taking over my life anyone else suffer similar things ? Ty for ur time reading x
