View Full Version : Post natal health anxieties

29-12-15, 20:15
I don't know if what I have is classed as post natal anxiety, but my anxiety has definitely increased a bit since having my baby a few weeks ago and I'm finding it hard to fully relax.

Mostly my anxieties are actually health anxieties and I find it hard to get thoughts out of my head once they get in there. I end up imagining myself dying from whatever the current problem is. I also torture myself by worrying about my baby dying.

It's hard to get these thoughts out of my head and be 100% happy because they feel logical and are things that could happen, so I can't just dismiss them. I'm constantly saying "well what if"

Has anyone else experienced this and how do you deal with it??
