My son is three and I'm still afraid to be alone with him incase something happens. I think it's a fear we just have to unfortunately have to get over. I wish you the best momma

Now I've been up since 3:30am with horrific heart attack symptoms. I can't take it anymore. I need to go to the hospital. My elbows ache so badly, yet I have no problems moving them or even lifting my son. Sometimes the ache is also in my jaw, especially on the left side. And I'm sweating, despite how cold it is in here. I'm trying to do the Linden Method, but I don't fully believe that it's anxiety so I doubt it will work. I think it used to be anxiety but now it's real, and no one will help me because of how many times I've cried wolf. I don't blame them, but it sucks. It's valentines day and I'm afraid my husband will come home to find me dead.

Are you taking any anti-anxiety meds or antidepressants and/or going to therapy ?

My OB will only let me take visteral and it does nothing. I've had allergic reactions to Zoloft and lexapro so she won't let me try anything while pregnant. And Medicaid won't pay for therapy. My husband and I both list our jobs and are now both only working part time so we can't afford our bills as it is.

Your heart is reacting to the stress in your life. Go to the hospital and you turn into an automatic patient and invalid. This happened to a relative. Never got out of the wheel chair.

Stay home, be strong for your little boy and you have a chance. People your age do not have heart attacks. Don't know what Linden Method is but meditation can calm you. Be thankful for your husband and everyone's good health. These are indeed very hard times for many. But we can do much to help ourself. You know we wish the very best for you.

Um so you're saying it is my heart?????

And I've gone to the hospital numerous times without being turned into an invalid.

It's your heart crying for your little boy, asking you, pleading with you to calm down and find something soothing to do.

You were lucky to get out, but luck can run out. Better help yourself. Wish I were there to do yoga or tai chi with you. Your little boy would join in too. Please give him a hug from me.

I have know lots of people who go to the hospital and get out fine. Something else was going on with your relative. I've probably gone 50 times in the last 5 years with no problems.

Yes, something was going on with my relative. He had allowed life to break his spirit. He stopped trying. Stopped fighting. Broke his daughters' heart and broke mine. The sorrow of my life.

And you have much power to break your little boy's heart and your husband's heart. You also possess great power to face what you must, do all you can for those who depend on your spirit and your support. You'll be surprised how you will be rewarded by them, by others, and yourself. You probably need some periodic relief from the needs of your little boy and a chance to get extra rest due to your pregnancy. Perhaps your husband or a friend or relative or neighbor can offer that relief. It would do you much good. Hoping for the best.

I am in the same boat as you. My husband works out of town for weeks at a time. Last year when my panic and anxiety really kicked off my little girl was only 1 and I had the same fears. I would barricade she and I in the living room, where I knew it was completely safe if something were to happen to me, I also had extreme heart attack fears, especially since I had just seen my father in law suddenly pass. But I did have friends and family near by, so I would keep in contact with them throughout the day. Periodically.  And everybody had the understanding if they didn't hear back from me with in an hour to come check on us.it never came to that, just having a plan in place helped me. And once I got my little in her crib for the night I felt so much better, knowing she was in a safe place,at that time she wasnt able to climb out of it. And the same thing went for the morning, if I didn't txt or call by suc h and such time....
