The drastic change from being completely driven by my design business to intentionally slowing down my career so that I can take care of my body and make room for motherhood is really DIFFICULT. I had no idea how difficult it would be.
I have always tried to deal with anxiety on my own and I have been afraid to label any of my problems as depression. I started fighting when I was about 5 weeks pregnant and vomited several times a day. Every day was all I could do to get out of bed in the morning and I felt useless, as if I was not accomplishing anything. "
Lately I have been living in a state of constant anxiety. I am still thinking about the best ways to manage it and progress through it, but I feel that lately I have received a lot of clarity. I am realizing that I have been in denial for the past five months and possibly a good part of my life about my mental health.
Is anxiety something you fight with? I would love to hear your story and I encourage you to SHARE! It's hard, but it's worth it!
