I'm a new mom. I'm 36 and I've been battling anxiety and panic since I was 15. I've been medicated for most of my life. After my delivery I stopped my meds thinking my hormones and chemical imbalance "cured" me. Boy was I wrong. I've hit rock bottom and I'm struggling. My son is only 3 months old and obviously very dependent on me. But when I'm having an anxiety attack, I can't seem to put his needs first. The fact that he needs me makes it worse, cause I'm unreliable. I can't think straight. I can barely breath. I don't want to think that having a baby was a mistake. But I was def being selfish in the decision making. I love him more than life itself. Any moms out there in the same boat? Any suggestions? I've done meds, therapy, yoga, Zumba, even hypnosis. Please help.
