I used to think the biggest thing that made me nervous was when the kids at work were quiet. See I work as a chemical health counselor for adolescents. So, when they get quiet it just about always means trouble. That trouble usually equates to calls to parents and/or probation officers. Sometimes it even means that the police come and take one of these teenagers to the juvenile detention center for a probation violation.
Then I found out I was pregnant. Please keep in mind, I had no basis for the worries that came next. I worried that something would happen and I would miscarry. Then I worried that something would be wrong with my baby. Then I worried that I would do something to hurt my baby.
When those worries proved baseless, I worried about labor. The only legitimate worry I had there was that while in labor, my son's heart rate kept dropping. So I had a C-section.
Now I worry about him - is he okay? Does this particular sneeze/rash/face/etc mean something more than a sneeze/rash/face/etc. When I leave him with someone else (yes, even my husband) I worry about whether or not he's okay. Pretty much all of these fears (especially leaving him with my husband) are baseless as well.
Good thing I rarely ever act on those worries!
5 minutes - stop.
