Are there any other mom's out there suffering from anxiety disorders. Mine makes me feel like a complete failure in every area of my life, especially as a mom. I feel like I am letting my little girl down all the time. I feel like I can't be there for her the way she needs me to be because I am constantly battling this demon. Sometimes life gets so overwhelming and I feel like all joy has been stolen from me. I should delight in every aspect of my daughter and being her mom, but so often it feels like I am just going through the motions. Like I'm numb inside.

Often those feelings are part of postpartum depression and anxiety. Medication and therapy has helped me. This feeling is common

Have you sort any type of treatment. Anxiety doesn't make me feel numb, rather I feel too much, worry too much, and obsess about the safety of my kids too much. Learning some simple relaxation and coping methods has helped me tremendously.
