Some time ago Matt Walsh got a lot of flak on Twitter for his suggestion that anxiety is not a disease. People were telling him about their anxiety disorder and how some things cause them panic attacks and that they can't function without medication.
Most of them were women, btw. That made me think. People nowadays are told to ignore their instincts. Yet getting anxious or even panicky may be your body's way to tell you to stop and rethink what you are doing. Progressives made a big deal about "mother's little helpers" and talked incessantly about 1950s housewives needing pills to get them through the day, yet how is it different from a woman who needs antidepressants to be able to function in work setting?
In fact, I doubt modern feminism would even be possible without anticonception pill and other drugs which make being an office drone or other similar jobs more or less tolerable.
Since I'm not a doctor I can't give medical advice on topic of disorders and mental health, but if you are suffering from anxiety it may be a good idea to try and find out what exactly is it you are so worried about. It could be the school your children attend, financial problems, in-laws, or work situation if you are employed. You may feel trapped or stuck but taking medication to numb your natural reaction isn't really a good way out.
Don't force yourself to do things which make you really uncomfortable. Don't be afraid to say, no. If the idea of going on vacation with your mother-in-law interrupts your night rest, just cancel it. If the neighbour pushes you to babysit for her because she wants to work longer hours and you have your hands full with taking care of your own family tell her to send her kids to daycare. Don't ruin your health because you are trying to please others. It's OK to change your mind.
You don't have to be a martyr, it's OK to just enjoy your life.
