Well this is a LONG shot but it's on my mind and I figured maybe someone over here would have some insight. I don't post much on the bump because we're not planning on TTC for a while.
One of the things I am doing before TTC is to wean myself off my medication for anxiety. I used to be on three different meds and now I'm only on two and hopefully when I start I'll only be on a reduced dose of one. This has been a long process but I'm doing awesome right now so hopefully in a few months it will be even better. My anxiety used to suck!
Anyway one of the things my psychopharmocologist and I figured out is that my anxiety manifests itself when I am idle. He told me today (not kidding) that he thinks I will overcome most if not all of my anxiety when I have a baby because I'll be so busy taking care of the baby. Hearing this was a huge weight off for me because one of the things I'm anxious about is whether I can handle a baby.
I know it sounds sorta wonky and don't worry I'm not running out and getting KU but has anyone had any experience with this? He said he's had patients whose symptoms have severely lessened when they became mothers. He called it the baby brain. Thoughts?
And hi! I'm not crazy. He's licensed and all.
