what it’s like to be a mom with generalized anxiety disorder

Trista Peterson June 2018

Constant worrying. Obsessing over a sad story on the news… so much so that it keeps you awake until 4am.  Feeling too nervous to ask for help… thinking if someone else helps care for your baby or child, something bad will happen to them.  Cosleeping because you’re too worried about your children’s safety to let them sleep in a different room.  Avoiding busy public places because you’re scared…

Yesterday was another day that felt like spring, which was great after it was 35 on St. Patrick’s Day, which meant we skipped out on the parade this year. I woke up early, went to work out.

We have finally had some sunshine this past week and it’s been so refreshing to be able to get these kiddos outside! Last weekend, we went to a little local ice cream and candy shop for lunch and ice cream. And, of course, had to pick up some of our favorite candies while we were there. Ben slept the whole time, so it was quiet and relaxing, and…
