  • Having a daughter with general anxiety disorder means a lot of the usual milestones come with a level of fear we have to overcome. Two weeks ago she refused to even put her face in the water, when we tried to help we were met with true blue panic attacks. Somehow my brave, determined 8yr old overcame her mind and trusted her dad and is now swimming! Underwater and with a snorkel! This is truly an amazing feat to overcome! Her confidence has soared and since starting to swim she will go downstairs by herself (previously she would never) and got stung by a bee but got over it after some ointment and went right back outside(normally once something hurts her she avoids that situation at all costs) huge wins! I'm so proud! #childhoodanxiety #anxietyinkids #kidswithanxiety #anxiety #gad #swimming #momof3 #momlife #momblog #proudmom #summerfun #momblogs #momblogger
