    momofallboys posted:
    I had my last child last october, since then i have had a bout of depression. I was seeing a therapist for awhile then kids sports got me to where i couldn't go see her anymore. But now that its winter almost I feel like im getting anxious for no reason again. My kids get sick and I'm worrying about them non stop. I have diarrhea sometimes and then i worry more and more than normal. Since i have had my last child ZI go thru spurts of constipation then diarrhea. Maybe i have ibs? not sure but just wondering if anxiety is maybe why im like this?
