Ok i don't know how many others out there a sick and tired of feeling well sick and tired...i am so frustrated with this crap every day of my life.. i have a son and am trying to get pregnant again and how could i even consider this when i feel as rotten as i do..this is the most annoying kick in the face as i have ever experienced...not matter how good you feel one minute you know that something is going to come back and bite you in the butt soon.. I am not anxoius or panicky right now just really really's so not fair that anyone should have to go through this and what if my children see me get upset and in turn develop anxiety what kind of mother does that make me???
Just needed to vent...Thanks

I am sorry that you are feeling frustrated right now. I really do understand where you are coming from. I get so angry sometimes! Why can't I just be normal? I am always having something wrong with me and making me feel bad! I am getting married in a few months and am beginning to think about children. I just do not see how I can ever have kids when I feel this way all the time! I obviously cannot handle my own problems, so how can I handle a child?/
I am sure you are doing a great job with your son just as you will with your new little one. Maybe just give yourself some more time to get the anxiety under control before you try for another?
I wish I could give you more advice on this!
Good luck!

hi lisag,

   I know EXACTLY how you feel. I am too hoping to get pregnant again and i have a 7 year old daughter. Most  days I feel great but in the back of my mind I'm thinking how long is this 'good feeling' going to last?. I too agree that no-one should have to go through this and wouldnt wish it on anyone ESPECIALLY my daughter.If your son does see you upset etc,then that does not make you any less of a mum!.

CBT helps me a LOT.

 When I had my daughter I wasnt on any meds (im on prozac now) so thats another issue I'm going to have to disscuss with my doc.anyway, take care   jayne xxx

I know what it's like with the kids, I tried to speak to mine to explain it all to them. My almost 15yr old seemed to understand it least (or maybe that's couldn't be bothered).

My 12yr old and 5yr old understood the difference between mummy a year ago and mummy now. I kept it simple saying it was an illness and that as soon as mummy finds the right pdoc and medicine to help me (maybe a stay in hospital) I could then be the old mummy again.

I have 4 kids and it does effect them. They know mommy is sick a lot and has to stay in bed. It scares my 7 yr old. But the younger ones are too little to understand. It makes me feel like a horrible mother. But I dont know what to do matter what i do i just dont feel good. I try and try. So I understand what you must be going through. On a good note..when I was pregnant each time my panic disorder was barely exsistent. It was a nice relief.
