I'm not really feeling alone, feeling a bit overwhelmed more than anything. Not only did I suffer the loss of my Mom, but I also got divorced a few months after that. I'm a single parent, but have major support from my village (family) as we truly believe in the idea that it takes a village to raise a child. :-) My daughter is 6 yrs old and whenever she experiences different milestones, I always think about how much my Mom would enjoy seeing her grow. I've also been in a long-term relationship with a really wonderful man who not only loves me, but adores my daughter as well. I do experience anxiety about our relationship as he is not in the best postion, financially, and we both want to take our relationship to the next level, but...finances play a huge part. Soooo, I believe I know the root of the anxiety, but my challenge is how to deal with it without freaking out... :-\ After my mom died, I was prescribed Lexapro, but only took it for a few months. I really didn't like the way it made me feel. My Dad suggested that maybe I want to speak with my doctor about a different med to deal with this. Sounds weird, but I really want to deal with this naturally, with as little medication as possible.
