I feel kinda awkward posting this but just wondering if other moms on here suffer with social anxiety? I've had it all my life but now that I'm a mom it's gotten so much worse. I can't hide anymore. I love my son more than anything but being a mom with anxiety is sooo hard. I'm terrified of when he starts school, having parent/teacher meetings, bringing him to birthday parties, etc. Right now I feel like I can't handle that kind of stuff. I've been on cipralex and it has helped but somedays my anxiety is just crippling. I know I'm not alone but somedays I sure feel like I am! Would love to chat with other moms who are going through the same thing.

i spent my whole pregnancy hiding in my house, i have horrid panic attacks in crowds of people of any size, being terrified all the time sucks, but your not alone, you've made me feel less crazy knowing im not the only one doing this
