Re: anxiety over your childs health

This is where my severe OCD began. I am terrified I am going to give my child a disease, syndrome, or illness (even though I don't have any) or will be the cause of a major accident.

Whenever he falls, hits his head, ect I immediately blame myself for not watching him close enough. When we found out DS has a heart defect I started thinking it was something I took while pg with him. I now know it's a genetic issue and nothing I could have done, but did it come from my family?

I always think he's eaten a battery or coins without any evidence that it's happened. I am pg with #2 and I worry that my anxiety will just double!

No one ever talks about the fear and stress that comes with having children...
