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?

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...
