Tired and Anxious

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

I have always battled with anxiety about pretty much everything. Work, life, what do people think of me, and now, how will I cope with my self and my anxieties now that I am pregnant and a lot more stressed about the upcoming school year. Now I have higher responsibilities and more to worry about. I keep telling myself... what does worrying do? Will it change anything? I thought I might give myself a break from anxiety since I am out for the summer, but I find myself continuing to find things to get anxious over every couple of days. If it's not one thing, it's another. I am so fearful of painful criticism. I drive myself nuts sometimes. Sometimes it helps to vent and just let it out so I don't hold it in causing a large breakdown later. I definetly have to get this under control so that I don't go insane and the baby does not come out anxious. Sorry to vent so much!

    Hey Aly, I know how you feel. You know that I go through the same thing. It seems like a never-ending battle. It affects our lives and our relationship with others. I know it sounds impossible but try not to worry too much. You are an amazing teacher and will be an even more amazing mommy! I`ll pray for God to take your anxiety away!

    I hope you can find something to ease your stress levels, especially before the baby comes. Then you will be limited in time to do for yourself.

    I would suggest meditation, prayer, positive self affirmations & making a collage of helpful soothing images.

    Since I'm homesick for WA & live in AZ, I put pictures of soothing & happy things on my screensaver page.

    May you find peace within that lasts. Sending prayers & good thoughts your way.

    Oh Aly, its so hard coping with life as it happens without inventing possible future worries too. I'm sorry you have such a tough time with this issue, and wish I could help.

    Where does all this anxiety come from? Lean on that lovely man of yours and all the supportive friends and family you have and trust your faith which I know is strong. Believe in yourself and treasure today as its given to you - I know this is easier said than done but you are such a lovely young lady, focussed and committed - how can you possibly doubt your abilities as a mummy - you are both going to be wonderful.

    I hope you find your inner peace - and I suspect that once your baby arrives, all your perspectives will change and suddenly everything will fit and make perfect sense!

    A friend of mine attended Yoga For Pregnancy and swore by it - worth a try?

    Love M x
