I'm a new-ish mum my DD is 18 months and I have suffered with PND I was very sociable before becoming a mum but now the day leading up to a night out I feel terrible, I sweat I feel sick I'm on the toilet with an upset tummy, In my mind I'm excited but my body is like NOPE

anyone experienced this or have any tips how to feel better sad

I just wanted to say you're not alone. I also suffer from anxiety - and have done ever since my DD was born (also 18 months ago). I'm not able to take her to playgroups or meet up with other mums / babies. I've just started CBT therapy which I think is going to be helpful. Have you spoken to your GP or family about how you're feeling? It helps having support, even though I haven't told many people. Really hope we both start to feel better soon. (I also find acupuncture works for tummy ... I get IBS when I'm stressed out - which sounds like what you have?)
