Hello out there! My son was born on 12/2/10 and I recently decided to become a SAHM this last march, after having worked full-time since I was 14 (now 25). I love being with my son and dont regret my decision, but I am starting to feel a little trapped and unmotivated. When I finally do get some time to myself I just feel guilty and miss the heck out of my little one. I am starting to battle w/myself over simple chores and even things like taking care of myself, which was always a priority before. I find myself spending more and more time on FB in efforts to mentally unwind, but seeing how much everyone else is enjoying themselves while Im stuck at home doesnt always help. I live in a different area then where I grew up and the crime rate is insane out here so taking my little one a walk through the hood doesnt always seem like the best idea... Am I alone or is there anyone else out there going thru something similar? Any suggestions?
