Anxiety 12 months after birth?

Has anyone else suffered anxiety 12 months having a baby? My little girl is 15 months old and I suffered mildly with PND and thought it had gone away as I put a lot down to lack of sleep and traumatic birth. However the last 4/5 months I have been SO anxious making me feel lightheaded, dizzy, barley going out as I feel I don't want to be far from home. I don't know how to make it stop? sad It's just getting worse

Hi, I'm 18 months post birth, have had anxiety since birth, but what I thought was normal for a first time Mum. It's got worse to the point that I don't like driving out of town to visit people and I don't like leaving my daughter in the care of anyone else other than my husband and weirdly her nursery, lots of other things which I won't ramble on about. Anyway I am now having counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy, doing it through my works private healthcare. Just thought I'd comment so you know you're not alone. flowers
