At Christmas my husband my little boy (aged 2) and myself had an awful virus, and it completely ruined christmas as we all felt so poorly. My husband got over his quite quickly and with some antibiotics my son was soon over his, however mine seemed to have knocked me for six. I lost half a stone in a week as i had no appetite what so ever and was very very tearful. It was almost as if i blamed myself for my little boy getting poorly as i couldnt look after him properly as i was ill, These feelings lasted for about 2 weeks, i was terrified of my boy getting ill again and was getting myself in to quite a state worrying about it. My mum came to stay at our house for a few nights as it made me feel better and i was able to relax abit more.As time went on I thought i was getting over this as i felt ok but all of a sudden i have started feeling emtional again and feeling lonely even though my husband has been very supportive. My mum is the only person who seems to make me feel better and stops me from worrying about things i can't control. Im fed up with feeling like this now, i dont want to keep calling on my mum all the time as im 29 years old, but i just can't seem to stop worrying about my little boy all the time :(

It sounds like your emotions are getting the best of you. Post pardum depression? I would make an appointment as these feelings you are having are unhealthy. A doctor would be able to help you with different options. Same advice for the 1st commenter.
