This is a personal one for me and for many other women. If not the majority of mums.
We all worry about our little ones, but there are excessive worriers out there.
I want to talk about that excessive worry, the over thinking, the thoughts.
I am one of those mum’s, and I can feel it getting worse and worse and I don’t know how to stop it.
I’ve spoke about postnatal depression in a previous post but not about anxiety. This over bearing anxiety is new, a month or two it’s been present in my mind. It can happen at anytime, no matter the age of your child, my daughter is 18 months.
I get good days, I get bad days.
The bad days, I can’t sleep or I over sleep. I don’t eat or I over eat.
The worst is the visions I get, something happening to my precious little life, a car accident, her falling inbetween the train line and the train (my most occurring one), her falling down with a serious illness and loosing her. Times like these I cry and I worry, I just want to wrap her up in cotton wool, cuddle her and keep her safe.
But I can’t do that.
I’m over cautious with her, I don’t like her near bridges unless I’m carrying her, I feel like I’m holding onto her to tight and being over protective, I hope to god this doesn’t effect her learning. But what can I do?
My biggest fear is loosing her.
I feel like my mind is going to explode at times.
I feel like no one can stop it.
How do you stop it?
Can you stop it?
