Dealing with yogurt to cure yeast infection anxiety – the motherchic

I hope that when people visit my site or my yogurt to cure yeast infection social channels, it serves as a mini escape. I keep it light, I share things that make me happy, and as a result, you see lots of smiling, happy photos. I am going go out a limb and say that yogurt to cure yeast infection most of social media operates the same way. It’s the highlight reel of our lives. But when it comes down to it, we are all human. Nothing is as perfect as it seems. I am so grateful for the beautiful life I have, but no one is invincible. I am sharing this post as a reminder that people yogurt to cure yeast infection don’t generally post photos of their kids screaming or not yogurt to cure yeast infection listening or fighting (ok that’s always for me), or when they are stressed out, or sick, or when they haven’t showered in 36 hours and have giant bags under yogurt to cure yeast infection their eyes or when everything is seemingly ok, but deep down something is just not right. Just because we don’t post these things, doesn’t mean that it’s not happening.

Four little syllables have rocked my summer – an.Xi.E.Ty. This is something I have never dealt with before in yogurt to cure yeast infection my life and boom – out of nowhere I felt like my life was being yogurt to cure yeast infection taken over by intense feelings of panic, doom, and fear. I debated whether or not to share this here and yogurt to cure yeast infection have been writing this post over and over in my yogurt to cure yeast infection head. But obviously I decided to write it and and here yogurt to cure yeast infection is why – one of the biggest thing that helped me overcome anxiety yogurt to cure yeast infection was talking to people. Turns out a lot of people have anxiety. Like A LOT. Women, men, kids, young, old and everywhere in between. I hope by telling my story it helps anyone who yogurt to cure yeast infection is experiencing anxiety to feel less alone, more normal, and opens a conversation about the importance of talking about yogurt to cure yeast infection mental health.

I have always been a very relaxed, chill, go-with the flow type of person. Once I had kids, normal “mom anxiety” kicked in. Now when I look at an ocean I see beauty, but I also see danger. Road trips = the worst. Why are there so many insane drivers? Don’t even get me started on airplanes. I used to think they were kind of fun – now I dread them weeks in advance. Sending my kids to school everyday – yes, today, that is a very scary thing. It’s not to the point where I keep myself and yogurt to cure yeast infection my family from doing these things, it’s just at first I fear it, then I tell myself I can’t live in fear, then we do it, enjoy it, and later I am grateful that it all worked out yogurt to cure yeast infection ok for us. But a lot of the time I feel like I yogurt to cure yeast infection am playing the odds.

In april, I was reminded about the fragility of life. One of my dear friends passed away suddenly and it yogurt to cure yeast infection rocked myself and my entire community to the core. In many ways we led parallel lives – we both have four kids exactly the same ages, shared the same babysitter, had kids in the same activities, we carpooled for everything and many times we were late yogurt to cure yeast infection because we would get caught up in conversations picking up yogurt to cure yeast infection each other’s kids about god knows what… probably the crazy life we both had raising 4 littles… and then she was gone.

The days and weeks after her passing are sort of yogurt to cure yeast infection a blur, but I remember feelings of guilt that I was still yogurt to cure yeast infection alive and able to see her kids, and then panic… I convinced myself that I was next. That is how life works – one second you can be here and the next second…. It’s hard to even write. But the reality is, there is a fine line between life and death and yogurt to cure yeast infection when I looked at my four kids…..It’s just impossible to put the pain into words.

I started having these intense episodes where I would get yogurt to cure yeast infection dizzy, my heart would race, I would get short of breathe, my arms would go numb, my neck would stiffen, my finger tips would tingle and I had no idea yogurt to cure yeast infection if I was having a heart attack or a panic yogurt to cure yeast infection attack or some underlying medical condition that was undiagnosed. This happened almost every day at varying intensities for a yogurt to cure yeast infection few weeks – I could be sipping morning coffee and boom, anxiety attack. Or was it something else? Watching my son play baseball, pushing my kids on the swings, writing a blog post, and out of no where I would experience these debilitating yogurt to cure yeast infection episodes.

At first I tried meditation apps to calm myself down, then CBD oil and anti-stress supplements, drinking wine at night. Then I got not one, but two ekgs, two physicals from 2 different doctors, 2 rounds of blood work, a blood clot test and a chest x-ray and even though I was given a clean bill yogurt to cure yeast infection of health, still… I kept thinking something was wrong with me.

So then I decided I needed to open up about yogurt to cure yeast infection this. I told my family and friends and even people I yogurt to cure yeast infection didn’t know very well about what I was experiencing. I just talked about it. And almost every time I talked about it, I learned that that person had experienced anxiety in some yogurt to cure yeast infection form at some point. Hearing about their experiences calmed me and reassured me that yogurt to cure yeast infection this wasn’t going to be “the new me”. Maybe my mind was doing such crazy things that it yogurt to cure yeast infection was, in fact, causing my body to react in this way?

And the thing about having anxiety is that you start yogurt to cure yeast infection fearing having anxiety. In the past when my friends made plans for dinner yogurt to cure yeast infection I was without a doubt totally in. But recently I found myself hesitating and thinking to myself, “what if I have an anxiety attack during the dinner?” I started fearing going places because I was unsure of yogurt to cure yeast infection what I would experience. I was scared to work out, scared to be my myself, and scared to go to places that I had anxiety yogurt to cure yeast infection in the past. I found myself being distant to my kids. It was hard for me to truly engage because this yogurt to cure yeast infection fear of anxiety was always in the back of my yogurt to cure yeast infection head.

This went on for almost a month. May was rough. I tried to convinced myself that what I was experiencing yogurt to cure yeast infection was, in fact, anxiety and not some other medical condition. Although if we are being completely honest, I am not sure I will ever fully believe that. When I became such a hypochondriac, I will never know. I decided I needed to do something about my mental yogurt to cure yeast infection health.

Finally it was the day of my appointment. I told the doctor my life history, my current condition and she said my case was pretty yogurt to cure yeast infection cut and dry. She likened my situation to one where I am walking yogurt to cure yeast infection outside with my kids on a beautiful day and they yogurt to cure yeast infection are skipping ahead. I am tip-toeing behind them with an umbrella, waiting for the rain. We needed to get rid of that umbrella.

My doctor said I had a form of PTSD that yogurt to cure yeast infection was manifesting as anxiety. Ok great. How do we fix this? If I have a headache, I take tylenol. If my kids have an ear infection, I would put them on antibiotics, if my mind wasn’t functioning the way it normally does, I would want medicine to help. I know everyone might not agree with this, but I learned enough about anxiety in the past few yogurt to cure yeast infection months that if left untreated (without therapy and/or medication) it can turn into depression. I left the office with some calming techniques, a reassurance that there is a strong mind/body connection and my symptoms were due to anxiety, and a low dose prescription to help bring my serotonin yogurt to cure yeast infection levels back up.

The thing about anxiety medication is that they don’t work right away. In the meantime, I leaned on friends and family, I used self-talk, I started exercising again (but made my husband run with me) and now in july, I can say I feel so much better. Maybe not 100% – some days I have moments, but I feel so much more like myself.

While I struggle with mild anxiety 24hrs a day (only a few panic attacks, but mostly just feeling sick to my stomach when my yogurt to cure yeast infection overactive brain gets the best of me), my world was rocked 2 years ago when my 10 yogurt to cure yeast infection year old daughter started suffering from severe anxiety. It was debilitating. She was so worried about everything, to the point where she was throwing up. Then she’d worry that eating would make her throw up, so she wouldn’t eat. In a weeks time (while on vacation in beautiful colorado), she lost 10 lbs. She cried and worried. Every photo from that trip, a fake, tense smile. As soon as we returned home, we got her in to see a psychologist. She started doing better for a couple weeks, then BOOM! She hit rock bottom, crying almost all day. I couldn’t do anything productive, because I knew she’d come down upset about something, and I’d have to spend 30 minutes talking it over with yogurt to cure yeast infection her, trying to get her to use her coping techniques from yogurt to cure yeast infection her doctor. It was frustrating and exhausting and oh, so upsetting. We felt helpless for our poor kid. That’s when it was decided she needed medicine. It’s been nearly two years. Since she started taking zoloft, and it’s been a world of a difference. She laughs when things are funny, she cries when things are sad. She’s a total goofball, weirdo (in the best way possible). She still feels, but the bad stuff doesn’t linger.

W(e were aware of it. He was a patient of CHOP) he came in our room to go to the bathroom yogurt to cure yeast infection at midnight, my husband picked him up and he was gone.
