A friend shared this on FB. So much of it rang true for me and so mich of it used to be because I was ‘too busy.’
Now anxiety is different. It changes once you’ve lost a child. Now it centers on my children’s well being and less on me. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I care a little too much what people think. It’s just different now.
It’s the anxiety I used to have over the kids x 1,000. Mass shootings, bacterial infections, accidents, etc. My brain can come up with any set of circumstances.
It’mothering to exhaustion.
