Hello, I am a mother of three children, 5, 3 and 2. My husband is a Navy doctor and he is completing his residency. We really do have a perfect life, however, I am now dealing with anxiety and at times depression. I have been to the dr twice and have recently started taking a temporary med, however, I feel the need to take it daily. I have my first appointment with a counselor in a week or so. I have good days and bad days, and it is really hard taking care of the kids when dealing with this. I just wish i could be normal, be a better wife, be a better mom, etc... Does anyone else feel this way? What strategies have helped you most with dealing with anxiety, especially for military life or family life?
