Weekend away and mom anxiety

Do other moms also have extreme anxiety? I worry about my little one constantly.
To the point where it affects my every day functioning. For example my husband and I are away for the weekend. She sick with coxsackie and staying with Ouma as we needed a break. She crys hysterically every night for a hour or so because we suspect her throat hurts a lot. And obviously the crying makes it worse but she doesn't  know that. We're headed back tomorrow but the stress I'm feeling is overwhelming right now. What do I expect? Is she going to be hysterically? Happy? Is she going to get worse? Opd midnight rush again? Another dr karl visit? What's next after this one? I struggle to enjoy my right now because I'm worried about what's next. I need to learn to handle my anxiety better and to realize that even if she is sick she eventually gets better. It usually only lasts 7-10 days. It's not so bad. We coped through bad bronchitis and a midnight fever throwing up episode with the Baby measles. I think it's just a lot of illness one after the other that's making me worry. I didn't have a chance to recover from the one then there was another. I sometimes worry I'm not strong enough emotional for this motherhood thing. But what else can I do? I'm a mom I have to cope. 

In other news, my husband and I went away to Kruger park for the weekend! He treated me as we genuinely needed the break. We haven't had much luck with the baby and going away so my mom offered to watch her even though she is sick. Love my mom to bits....

We stayed at my favorite camp Tamboti. It was awesome and exactly what we needed. Here are some pics

So negative

Have you ever had those days where your just like: fuck it, I'm done. Today is one of those days. I'm so over this whole immigration bullshit. I feel like every step we take forward, there are 2 that pushes us back. And the steps cost money, a shit load of money. Besides the immigration steps that are causing me stress, there is the things i gave up. I passed up a major promotion at work because we were immigrating. It required training and my bosses needed to know if I'm going to be staying at my work so that i could undergo this training. It would've meant a major increase and is what i had been working towards for the last 8 years. Its now gone. And if we stay i obviously won't get it and will be where i am now in work position.


This about sums me up right now.....


So to try to cheer me up i turned to tumblr which always manages to cheer me up a bit with images i love. Here are some.
