I'm Burning Out As A Mom & Need Help

I feel like I'm crashing & burning already as a mom & it scares me. My kids are only 3.5, 2, & 4 months & I'm so overwhelmed. I'm a SAHM with them & Hubs and I share a car. I NEVER get to leave! I don't have family that could watch the kids (everyone is either too far away or works) and I don't have any friends (plus I'd hate to dump three kids on someone). My only alone time is when I have to go to the dentist :( I'm depressed & I need help, but I don't know what to do. I know I should probably speak to a counselor or therapist, but the kids would have to be with me. I know I should go out for Mommy time or take the kids to playgroups, but I don't have childcare or a car. I would really appreciate suggestions for someone in my situation to stay sane.

I would start by talking to your husband, maybe if he knew how you really felt you both could come to an agreement where you get one day to do something for yourself.

don't be a stay at home mom.... get at least a part time job... or a hobby, or find a mother's day out thing you do, or start one!!! one day a week find a way to get rid of the kids, go to the spa, or get your nails done, veg out, or go to the mall... or even go to the park with out the kids!
