I was heading to the spa last weekend and I began to feel this twirling anxious sensation. I've noticed that it usually comes about when I'm alone. This experience is manageable but uncomfortable not knowing how long it will last and if I will be able to be myself through my appointment. While driving, I began contemplating why I might be having this reaction and then it hit me, there was something missing from the "norm." My baby wasn't with me! She and I are tied to the hip and in many ways she gives me the strength that I need to get past an anxious moment. Without her with me, I wasn't sure how to manage my anxiety alone. It felt foreign and slightly uneasy for me to go about a day without her there to help carry me along. Once I came to this realization it was amazing how quickly I began to feel better. Through identifying the root of the problem I gave myself peace-of-mind on the situation. If only my little girl knew how much of an impact she truly has on my life. I know that going forward I won't always be able to take her with me but I'm hopeful that because I have come to terms with how my anxiety gets triggered I will be better prepared for what may come.
