Thank u for ur kind words it means a lot:) my kids are 9,6,5,2...2 of them go to school full time and my other one half time . I love them with all my heart but I just feel like I'm living life with no feeling .. As if I were dead in side ... If I didint have them I honestly would have tooken my life away... I have so much hate with my self that I don't give my family all the love they deserve because I'm stuck in this funk I can't get out of !:(

You can't undo the past, hon. You can only move forward. What will you do with today?



You need to believe that you have worth. What you're doing is important. Are your kids fed? Are they in school? Our kids are reflections of ourselves in many ways. They are reflections of our nurturing and our love and our humor and our anger. When we're feeling blue, we can only see the negative aspects of parenthood.

So, start with this: Make a list and start crossing things off. Even if it's a list of things you've already done so far today, cross them off. It'll give you a sense of accomplishment.



Baby steps will help you get there.



Don't neglect the fact that the moon is almost full right now. It has a definite pull on us and can make us feel really shitty every month. Hormones are a bitch.
