I have never tried this but i feel like i need to voice my issues with other people who might understand.. I just turned 24 years old in July. Just had a beautiful son in October and honestly i thought that would change my outlook on everything. But it just gives me more anxiety about not being enough. I have a constant fear of losing my job, not being the best father that i can be because my father was always in and out most of my life. Im always the one who preaches about mental health but can never take my own advice about how to help. I hold so much inside everyday because i feel like i dont have time to sit and let my thoughts take over or work through them. I just... i dont know anymore.

I was told that as soon as you are a parent, you will be anxious for the rest of your life :)

Hi. Maybe just posting here is some sort of start to not holding it all in. Take it from there. Try to talk about it, its surprising how many do understand - very few are coping perfectly like we can easily assume.

Yes, we can all preach a good sermon! :)

"I don't know anymore" - who does? Try to trust that things can get better.

All the best
