My anxiety is so bad since having a kid 2 years ago

Ever since having my son my anxiety is next level.
I would say my biggest struggle is around his sleep and routine. I am a control freak and have been used to a life of keeping this in control as much as I can… obviously kids don’t fit that. I really struggle when he’s unwell, he’s tantruming (to regulate my own emotions), and when he doesn’t sleep or wakes at night I get overwhelmed. (Probably because I feel I can never go to sleep and relax as you never know how the night will go).
I know why did I have a kid? I LOVE my son, but this crippling anxiety is stopping me wanting to have another.
does anyone else have more anxiety since having a child?
just looking for supportive words or similar stories ❤️

i honestly could’ve written your post almost to the word. I’m also crippled by anxiety around my son. I am being medicated to try and help things, but it certainly hasn’t fixed me. I’m not sure how I’ll ever get my anxiety under control.
some days life just doesn’t feel worth living as it makes me so unhappy 😥

I think it's normal tbh. I'm a very laid back person but even I got quite anxious when my son was born. I found it was only temporary though. It'll go in good time and everything will calm down.
