I was going to post but SJ joined in to say what I was going to say except I feel for kids, had my own, and think they deserve the best we have to give them. They don't ask to be born. We put them into this world and want to do all we can to help them, always.

Your admission that you need help goes a long way to getting better. You want to summon your will and determination to help yourself. This can be with a therapist, with some light meds, with self-help books, with support groups, with CBT and its components of journaling, varied exercise, reading, thinking, meditating, etc. You will enjoy learning about yourself. And your boy will be so happy to have the good role model he needs and deserves.

About seeking help for my anxiety I know I need to do it. I really do I just don't think it will help me.

Okay, but is what you're doing now helping you? What have you got to lose in at least trying to treat your anxiety? Try it for six months, and then revisit  this question.

In case anyone is still confused:  googling your symptoms will cause you to remain in a state of extreme anxiety. Stepping away from the internet is the first step toward lasting peace.

Okay if you're "drilling him with questions," stop that.  Seriously.  My mom, who had HA for a long time, used to do that.  Most of my HA habits I learned from her.  Keep this away from your son.  It's your battle, not his, don't drag him into it.

This!!!!  Lindsay you can't do this to him.  It's not fair.  I know it's hard, but please, I beg you, to not do this to him.  Don't saddle him with a life of fears.

Medication and therapy will work but you have to want it to work and you have to want to change.  Until then, these obsessions will just keep spiraling.  Do you really want to live the rest of your life like this?  Is it fair to you, your husband or your kids?

The first few weeks of an SSRI can be no fun, therapy can be no fun and is hard work but its so worth it!!!!  You can finally be free.
