Is there any reason in particular that triggers this ?? Ive just had my 3rd baby so i think mine has arised from that .. the thought of not bein around 4 them. R u taking any medication?

    Hi just wanted to reassure you that i know exactly how you feel. Firstly you have just your 3rd child (this is when i started with my anxiety). I was terrified and i also kept it a secret for years as was so afraid people would think i was mad.

    So let me tell you what i have learnt in the past 6 years

    You have a million hormones running around your body trying to drive you insane, you have three children to care for and a home to clean tea to make etc.

    To top it all off you are EXHAUSTED ! That is what did it for me, the exhaustion made it worse, my body was ready to give up but my mind was stubborn and it would not let me rest!

    PLEASE REMEMBER .......... You are not now and will never be SUPERWOMAN! You WILL have to ask for help. If you are Tired...sleep, forget the housework it will still be there tomorrow!

    The one thing i did not realise for many years and still have to remind myself on my worst days I AM IMPORTANT TOO!

    Be kind to yourself, rememebr to always ask for help if you need it and don't be too hard on yourself, they all need you but your no good to anyone if you do not look after yourself. Hope this helps xxx
