I have a wonderful family. But there are days (and they seem to be getting to be more and more often), that I just want to run away. I've read stories about mother's suffering from PPD and they end up killing their child(ren). The thought horrifies me, and angers me. Then there are days when I start to think "If I hear 'Mom' or 'Honey' one more time I'm going to lose it. I feel more crazy lately than not. Seems like no matter what I do, it's not good enough for someone. Plus I have no friends to talk to when I get super stressed out. No one to just get out of the house with, except my husband, which as much as I love it just isn't the same as a friend on the outside of the harsh reality of life. It sucks. I love being a Mom. But I haven't had a moment to myself in a long while.
