Hi, my name is Jen and I joined this group because I have anxiety related issues on a daily basis. I was diagnosed with depression/anxiety when I was younger, with the depression under control...the anxiety never went away. I feel alone in this because people dont understand they way that I am and look at me differently. I have 3 beautiful boys, ages 5, 2 1/2, and 1 and wouldnt change it for the world, but I have never worried more in my life. I check on them constantly, awake and sleeping, and am protective of them which makes my MIL look at me strange. I lost a baby so I dont know if that is when my anxiety with my children got worse? I cant fall asleep until I have checked on each of them at least twice and touch there chests to make sure they are breathing....I know...strange! I get worked up when I see I have a lot to do housework-wise and go into these attacks from overwhelming thoughts and anxieties. I just want to find people that understand what it feels like, this is normal for me.....thanks for listening!
