Just thought I would introduce myself. I suffered a traumatic experience in May of 2005. Since then, my life pretty much changed forever. I got severe anxiety which led to severe insomnia which led to mild depresson...it was a vicious cycle. I was put on meds and been on them ever since although mostly on the lowest dosage.
My anxiety gets really bad when I think of stressful situations. It's like I cannot control it and I end up obsessing over things (which leads me to beleive I have a slight case of OCD.) I also had a very hard pregnancy with my daughter and I am literally terrified to get pregnant again. There's a name for it which I actually found out called "Post Birth/Pregnancy Trauma" and my husband and I are going to try for #2 soon so my anxiety is really present lately.
Although mostly under control, I am one of those super happy energetic people and it would be hard to guess that I suffer from anxiety but I am not ashamed to admit it. I am a happily married 25 year old mommy with a what seems like perfect life, but my mental health issue will always be present in my life and there's not much I can do.
I can definately sympathise with the anxiety... My nephew died in 2004, and ever since then I have had horrible anxiety problems, mostly related to other people dying... someone just needs to be a minute late home from work or a trip, and I'm freaking out all over the place...
