Thank you for posting your query.

I agree you are going through a difficult phase of life, on account of health and personal issues.

It is normal to feel anxious with the problems you are going through. However, these symptoms would improve with proper treatment. I suggest you consult your psychiatrist/psychologist for help. You may need anti anxiety medications.

You would a good and capable mom, able to take care of your children.

You should continue your medications, including aricep.

Best wishes,
