sammi11jo :  YES! My fi and I are actually in an argument as we speak. We are getting married in two months and the stress of planning a wedding is getting to us but I know it’s totally normal and you should to! Don’t worry about your wedding anxiety, I think every bride goes through it. ENJOY your bridal shower! Your friends and family are coming together for you because they love and support you. Laugh, play and eat and just forget about all that is bothering you. Xo

As someone with PTSD, clinical depression & general anxiety disorder- please put yourself FIRST and go see your therapist ASAP! If you can’t go in, ask for a phone appointment. You need to be putting yourself first when it comes to your health!!

Happened to me too! For both my bridal showers I got anxious. Got moody and high strung but once I was at the shower, I had a great time! 

My bachelorette party is Saturday and I almost asked my Maid/Matron of Honor to call it off last week because I was just having so much stress about it: what if this friend group doesnt like this other friend? What if people arent really wanting to come but just doing it to go thru the motions? If people stay over how will I get my house cleaned to perfection before they arrive?!?

im working to recognize my stress as stemming from anxiety and calmly deal with it. Its hard.

hope you had a great shower!

I hope you’ll make time to see your therapist and work on things.

I will also say that fi and I have had a recent rough patch and it was getting better.  Then on Saturday, something happened that changed everything (I can’t give details) and I felt like my world was crumbling.  Fi has been and continues to be my rock. It has been a good reminder of why I’m marrying him.

sammi11jo :  I can relate. I have struggled with depression for a long time and I worry about EVERYTHING.  Lately my emotions have been up and down. I feel like I am all over the place.  One moment I am riding the engagement high and making plans for the wedding and the next I am questioning everything including my future.  I’m currently working with a therapist and going to revisit my psychiatrist as I think my medication is no longer working for me.  You should probably do the same so you can feel more level headed and happy during this time of your life.
