my son will be three next week. i suffer from general anxiety disorder and i am a hypochondriac. in fact, while he was growing (8mth to 2.5 yrs) i was soo concerned about his development...i drove myself and my family nuts. i finally feel better and want to have a second but now i am afraid. i am 34 yrs old (which puts me at higher risk) and my husband;'s sister just delivered a baby with down syndrome (this was her third baby, other two were typical) and she is only 33. i am very upset and confused. my fear is my son with be at a disadvantage if he does not have a sibling...but my anxiety gets the best of me and have yet to find a way to cope..so the idea of having a child with special needs scares me bc i would always worry about them.
