I have a lot of anxiety, mainly about the health and welfare of my child. How do you with children deal with this? How do you let go? I have a lot of anticipatory anxiety relative to my child. We moved into a new house a few months ago with a huge picture window in the living room, and a smaller window in the master that went straight down to the patio out back (about 2 stories). For a long time, I would have recurring anxiety attacks about him running through the picture window and hurting himself, or falling out the upstairs window. I refuse to ever open that window (even though he can barely reach it). We were at a park a few weeks ago and he was on the play structure for ages 5+ despite my repeated attempts to keep him on the 2-5 structure. There is one place taht is really high up and doesn't have any guard (has a pole that the big kids climb up). He got too close to that open edge on his way to the slide and I totally freaked out at the park in front of other parents. I felt like they were all staring at me and I haven't been back since. How can I stop this cycle? More, how can I keep him from taking on my craziness?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
