Ok where to start... so I'm 21 and a stay at home mom with a 22 month old. We don't go out during the day unless we have something to do which is very rare. I lost my friends after not keeping in touch with them after high school plus never had time to hang out. I don't go to school or do any activities for myself. I'm honestly with my daughter 24/7.. She even sleeps with me! I'm just getting very overwhelmed and not sure what to do and no one to talk to. My boyfriend (her father) runs his own business and works long hours. But when he gets home he's tired and doesn't feel like doing anything which is understandable. I do everything from cleaning, cooking, laundry, bathing our daughter to most of the time taking out the trash. I feel over exhausted and kind of fed up. We don't even get to sleep in the same bed or even have alone time.. It's like we're "roommates".. We haven't had sex in months which makes me feel like I'm not attractive anymore. His mom lives an hour away and wont ever take off time to come see her and my mom lives minutes away but is too busy with her life to stop by more than once a week. They don't even offer to take her or yet haven't but maybe twice? So me and her dad have only had total 5 date nights since she's been born. Crazy huh? I'm sure I'm not the only one out there but man.. I just feel depressed. I never once thought being a stay at home mom was easy but never in a million years thought it would be this rough. Does anyone else have the same problem? Any advise?
