Hi all, I would like to share my story to see if anyone can relate to this, I had my first baby when I was 22 and all was fine apart from a little anxiety after having him which has never really gone away, but I just put that down to being a mum and worrying like mum's do, then 3 years later I had a baby girl, 2 weeks after she was born I was alone feeding her in my front room and felt like the room started to spin as though I was going to pass out, so I put the baby down and called my husband who kept talking to me the whole time to reassure me it will pass and all will be fine and that I was probably needing something to eat myself etc, to cut a long story short my mum ended up coming round to take care of the baby because my dizziness went from half hr to an hr then carried on for 7 hrs before I went to bed, I then woke the next morning and thought it had all passed, little did I know this would start all up again within 10 minutes of waking up for the next 5 months, it was a living nightmare, I lost so much weight, my hair started falling out, I felt like I was going mad and that my heart was going to pack in, I then got diagnosed with graves desease, I got put on carbimazol for a year and it all went back to normal but my anxiety and panic attacks didn't, 7 years later I was back on track and feeling normal, gaining my weight back and feeling good, my children then 10 and 7, my marriage broke down and I met a new partner and we would like to try for a baby of our own but the worry that is weighing so heavily on my shoulders is unbearable, I have spoke to my endocrinologist today and he said all should be fine and started me on a new medication so that if and when I conceive the baby won't be effected, but I'm so worried as to how I'm going to be effected after the birth, because it had so much control the first time I felt I missed out on a lot of my 2 children's lives and don't want this to be the case this time. My husband was very understanding and was with me through thick and thin ( literally) and worry that my prevent partner wouldn't understand so much bit then I think that's me just doing my normal worrying thing again. Does this sound familiar to anyone, thank you for reading 😊
