I'm having pretty bad anxiety the past couple of weeks, and I'm afraid it's only getting worse. I had this problem with my first daughter five years ago and ended up going to therapy for a while.
I can't hep but constantly think of random stuff that could happen with LO - what if she doesn't sleep, what if I can't transition her to the crib before I go back to work, etc....Just lots of what-ifs. (A lot of my anxiety centers around her sleeping because sleep deprivation is one of my greatest fears; thankfully DD sleeps through the night already).
My dd has been asleep for the past two and half hours for a nap and that never happens - I should be relaxing but instead I can't concentrate on the book I'm reading because I am too anxious and my mind keeps wandering. I find myself grinding my teeth and giving myself a headache because I'm stressed, but it's over nothing concrete or very specific.
Anyone else going through this? I don't want to end up in therapy again so I'm just trying to figure out how to get rid of this constant feeling of anxiety.
