Post Natal Anxiety

Just been reading about this on the Anxiety UK website - it has changed the way I think about myself. I really struggled after the birth of my DS 10 years ago and thought I was going mad. I had labyrinthitis in the last few weeks of my pregnancy and as I have health anxiety this absolutely terrified me.

I adore my DS and loved being at home with him but was terrified something would happen to him. I found the responsibility was an enormous elephant sitting on me. One day I saw two freckles on top of his head and wanted to take him to the doctors!! XH said no but was not at all supportive.

I still feel very anxious about letting DS out of my sight, or let other people look after him. But reading the Anxiety UK website has put everything into focus.

I might have a read as my DS is 18 months and I still suffer badly with PNA - and I'm pregnant again.

I'm suffering from pna. It makes me feel properly mad sometimes. I'm on sertralene.
