I know it sounds silly... I love being here for my kids but I lost me... I worked for 15 years before I became a SAHM and I am losing my mind... I have been home now 5 years straight and I have hated about 85% of it. I am no longer any part of who I was ... Now I am so and so's momma.... so and so's wife... hell I don't even have a name... it's mom, momma, mommy, Ma, mum, mumma, wife, da wife, the wife, my wife, there's my wife over with the kids, no one ever uses my name... I sometimes wonder if I have one... no one asks me what I do or did or am interested in it's

"what does your husband do?"; Is your son in Cub scouts? Is your daughter in cheerleading... Blah blah blah... Don't you want to know about me... Not trying to be selfish but I honestly can't recal the last tiem some one took care of me... or asked about me (and really wanted the answer...) I give props to you all who work it... I can not... I hate it...

Joy . I know exactly how you feel. I feel the same way, i love being home with my kids to ,love watching them grow, accomplish things. But its stressful! Expecially when your husband is working from home. He can't help cuz he has to keep an eye on his job. I feel like people should take care of me sometimes too, at least when im sick or something! I have two kids 5 yrs and 8 months, sometimes feels like i have three, lol. Just hang in there!! What are you interested in? If you like walking, do that. It helps. I love walking! But its snowy here so kinda cold ,lol. Hope this helps a little.
