Hello gemsio

gemsio Tue 09-Jun-15 21:42:20

Hi. How are you?

LoveTheWets Tue 09-Jun-15 21:43:17

Not too bad today. How are you doing?

HelpMeSandBGurus Tue 09-Jun-15 21:45:48

I'm here, what do you fancy talking about?

gemsio Tue 09-Jun-15 21:47:17

Feeling pretty low and quite anxious which is Wierd as anxiety isn't my usual problem. I tried to contact my ex H, to check on my DS and he didn't answer so I started to panic and it went on from there. we are recently split, he left because if my depression. Just feeling anxious and angry. sad

You know what, I had a knock back today and it didn't floor me! I'm amazed with myself as i don't normally roll with the punches.

LoveTheWets Tue 09-Jun-15 21:51:21

X-posted with you there, gemsio. Are you worried something's happened or do you think ex is messing with you?

gemsio Tue 09-Jun-15 21:51:46

That's good to hear! I am normally quite good at bouncing back from things but recently and today I have just not managed it. I just find myself wandering around the house, so angry at ex H for leaving me for something I have no control over. just feel like screaming, but obviously don't want to wake my DD.angry

HelpMeSandBGurus Tue 09-Jun-15 21:52:03

gemsio the exact same situation you've just described happened to me a few months back, it's so awful that panicking feeling. Did you manage to get hold of him? How are you feeling now?

LoveTheWets Tue 09-Jun-15 21:53:53

what about getting in bed with your sleeping DD - would that calm you?

gemsio Tue 09-Jun-15 21:54:49

sorry just saw the next post after I posted. he said he was out of range which is possible as he is out in the sticks, but he knows how I am feeling and I asked him to be available if I needed to check on my DS.
He finally called and he was out with his friend, leaving my DS with his mum. I hope he doesn't wake up as he doesn't know them too well and will freak out. I think I am just getting worked up over stuff that has never happened yet (my big problem) sad

gemsio Tue 09-Jun-15 21:56:18

sorry hasn't happened not never has happened! it seems my grammar goes to shit when I am anxious! that's new! x

HelpMeSandBGurus Tue 09-Jun-15 21:56:58

Oh gem I completely get you, it's so hard to control the panic once it starts spiralling isn't it? How old is your DS? I think it sounds like your ex is being very insensitive.

gemsio Tue 09-Jun-15 22:01:36

Thankyou. He is only 2. And he is going through a big seperation anxiety thing, mainly because his dad has left.
Yes, as always my ex is totally oblivious to how I feel when I can't check on him. I know he will be fine. But for him to go out with friends and leave him just makes me angry. angry

LoveTheWets Tue 09-Jun-15 22:06:11

I don't blame you for being angry but your boy is safe and sleeping now. When will he be back with you?

HelpMeSandBGurus Tue 09-Jun-15 22:06:38

He will be fine. But I know how patronising I always find it when people say that to me! Anxiety isn't a rational thing and I completely get where you are coming from. It's such a horrible feeling.
I know that there's not much that a stranger on the Internet can say that will make you feel less anxious but I just wanted to say that I really do get how you feel.

gemsio Tue 09-Jun-15 22:10:02

thanks guys, Just having this chat has helped me calm down. I know he is fine.
He will be back on Thursday, so am looking forward to seeing him.
I really appreciate just chatting to me, I really needed it.x

Next time you're anxious, put House of Cards on Netflix. It is so baffling you will forget what you're worrying about smile

Night night gemsio and HelpMeS&B
