I have a quick poll for my own peace of mind. How many of you have children and are surviving? I am planning on having my first child soon, but am very reluctant and nervous because of my anxiety disorder. I know that you don't get much sleep and that always triggers my anxiety. I don't think my husband will want me to drive with our baby in the car because of my history of attacks while driving. Plus, there is the general stress of having a child. Most of the time, I feel like I can't take care of myself, even though this is irrational and silly because I can handle the day to day fairly easily most days. When I'm in the middle of an attack, I feel helpless and weak. Also, another irrational fear is that my child will have a panic disorder like me. I couldn't live with myself if I did that to my child. My doctor assures me that people do it all the time and that I'm worrying way too much. I just need to hear that it's possible and worth it from people who have been there. Thanks!!
