Face facts...anxiety sucks...i have been getting beaten down for two months now and can't seem to pull out of is non stop and i am convinced that if i don't get a handle on it at some point it may take a physical toll on me and that scares me to death.  I have already developed some physical symptoms...which is frustrating in and of itself..this whole thing sucks.. i am trying to find a job and a daycare for my son.  My sister in law is pregnant and very demanding my husband is going through such a hard time he works with mentally challenged people at our state hospital. and on top of this my mother in law who currently resides with us is the worst alcoholic i have ever met....Now i know what you will say...get away from the mother in law...i can't...and i can't because i can't abandon people...i have this overwhelming fear of being left behind becuase my biological mother gave me up at 9 months...(Actually she could not physically take care of me so i was taken away from her)...anyway now i could never leave someone alone especially someone as helpless as my mother in law...Next issue...i ahve the most unrealisitc fear of being allergic to everything....and i mean EVERYTHING...i have mentioned this before...with no real reasoning behind it other than every now and then my throat  feels tight and my tongue burns but that is all anxiety related i am convinced...anyway if anyone has any advice for me that would be greatly appreciated.. I am going to try to find a good CBT in my area but it's hard with everything else i need to do..Oh yea my husband wants another baby now too...not that i don't i mean i would love another child but with my anxiety level where it is i don't know if that would be the best thing for me...thanks for letting me vent..............HUGS

Well I just want to say sorry for the stuff that your going through and I understand the not leaving ppl thing. I myself have been the same way. My husband also wants another child and I'm not sure about it either. I know being pregnant knocks my anxiety away but thats not a good reason to have a child. I do want another I just don't think its a good time. Anyway hope all starts to look up for you.

Wow do you have alot going on just now! The CBT is a great idea. Maybe you could check out some of the on-line CBT and relaxation sites in the meantime. Sorry I dont know them, but if you post asking, many here do.

Hang in there and take care,

Oh dear... breathe deep my friend and big *HUGS*

Here is online cbt...

and here you can find breathing techniques and other mediation lessons and things like that..

Tell your husband that you may want to hold off on the baby as your anxiety is far too high and I am having the same problem... because the past month has been the worst by far.. UGH
