Chasing Waterfalls

It was four days into our trip when I realized my watch was still set on Utah time! Ha! Goes to show how much I check the time on my wrist… Anyway, about halfway through our trip I got hit with some major anxiety. (Anyone else suffer with anxiety postpartum?) We decided to leave Lucy home with my sisters, because we were spending so much time in the car in Norway. I thought it would be mean to have her strapped in a car seat for 4+ hours every day! But my goodness, it was harder to be away from her than I thought. I had thoughts like “What if she is not a baby anymore, by the time I get back?” It was weird because I’m usually a pretty tough nugget. We facetimed her (She couldn’t have been happier, are you sure you want us to come home!?) took lots of deep breaths, and chased lots of waterfalls to calm my anxiety. How do you calm your nerves and anxiety?

    I had anxiety (because of OCD) prior to having a baby and, YES. It got worse. I feel ya! I went to a therapist for about a year to learn healthy ways of coping. You're not alone!

    Side note: I also have a baby Lucy. Best name ever!

    Anxiety is the worst. Honestly pray, listening to a sermon, or reading the bible does wonders to distract me from my worries. Other times just getting up and moving to keep my mind off of it helps too.
