Thank you all for stopping by and having a read of my life as a Mum. I've got zero idea about what I'm meant to be doing, endless amounts of anxiety, but infinite love for my girls Evie and Grace.
  1. What if....

    What if....
    "OMG YOU AREN'T GOING WITHOUT YOUR PHONE!!!!" - Me aka the crazy Mumma This is exactly what I said to my Mum when she wanted to take Evie for a walk around the block. What if something happened? What if she got lost with MY baby? What if Evie needed her Mummy? What if something bad happened and I wasn't there? What if a freak windstorm came and they got blown away to Oz with Dorothy? It would have all been okay. In fact, it was all okay. They were gone for 15 minutes and Evie was a happy

    Wow. That escalated quickly.
    My husband had a specialist appointment today for something he has had for a long time. I have been telling him for years now to get it checked. Finally, he did it. You would think I would be happy that he actually went. Then, in the space of about 10 minutes, it happened. Extreme anxiety. The need to call him was intense. I had to make sure he was okay. He had been at the doctors for 15 minutes by the time the anxiety started. Here was my thought process. Why was it taking so long? He got

    Where the hell did that come from?!
    This morning started like any other day. Wake up like a zombie, give Evie a cuddle, put on The Wiggles, make her milk and feed it to her. HOWEVER, this morning when I was putting the scoop into the formula I had a horrible thought....what if this is the last time I feed her. WHAT THE HELL!?!?! WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?!?!?! I tried really hard not to let it build. I told myself that it was such a stupid idea and I had to blog about it. Good. NOPE! I've been on edge all day. Even though I'm

    Things that people with anxiety want you to know
    I just read this article titled '36 Things People With Anxiety Want Their Friends to Know' from the website 'The Mighty'.  Here is the link if you want to have a read. http://themighty.com/2015/11/36-things-people-with-anxiety-want-their-friends-to-know/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=Mighty_Page&utm_campaign=CLASSICS It was quite eye-opening knowing that what I am thinking in my head, is the same as what others are thinking and experiencing. This journey of blogging has begun to open my eyes
  5. I've been thinking.....

    I've been thinking.....
    I've been thinking..... How many people have seen their anxiety increase since the birth of their first child? And of those people, how many of them are actually talking about it? There is this whole notion that to talk about anxiety makes you look weak. I know I have felt that way for a long time. I was chatting to someone today briefly about putting on a brave face to cover it. Why is showing anxiety a sign of weakness? Besides, who gives a shit if it is a sign of weakness? We all have our
  6. Why are drop offs so hard?

    Why are drop offs so hard?
    So, I just dropped Evie off to her Great Grandparents house before I head to work. She was so happy to be there. As soon as she saw them her face lit up and her smile became as wide as the moon. My Grandparents smiles were even bigger! But, as soon as I walked out the door, I instantly started thinking about when I should call to make sure she is okay.

    My Sick Evie
    So, Evie is sick. She has a head cold.....I think. It has been about a week and it is still around. It keeps changing. She started all snotty and now it's all about the cough. It's a chunky sounding cough.....but sounds dry at the same time....and is becoming more constant....kinda....
My name is Marianna and I've been blogging since 2016. I've always had anxiety but once my first child (Evie) was born, I found my anxiety had changed. It got to the point where I had to be proactive and make a change. This is it! I'm also very active on Instagram so please take the time to follow us @theanxiousmumma
