I'm a stay at home mom which I thought would be a lovely idea but now I'm starting to feel very overwhelmed. I only have 1 child who is now 20 months old and has begun the " terrible 2s" stage. I get absolutely no time for myself. In this 20 months, I've had 2 nights away from home without my family. We moved about 2 hours away a year ago and I have absolutely no friends or family here. My husband and I don't have a proper relationship anymore because I'm wiped by days end to even think about getting intimate. We're so new here, we don't even have a babysitter so we can go out together. I've joined play groups in hopes to find other moms to become friends with but nobody seems interested.. They all seem to have their own cliques. Point.. I'm lonely, I'm tired and I'm frustrated to no end these days. All I want to do is sleep. Forget house chores and making dinner.. My pillow keeps calling my name. My son got me so worked up this morning, I had to walk away because I just couldn't take it anymore and then I spent the rest of the day feeling guilty and cried. My poor husband. He works from home, so he sees my change in mood and of course has to work knowing I'm upstairs struggling. I'm so physically and emotionally tired I don't know what to do with myself. How do I deal with a child that doesn't stop whining??? I knew this would happen eventually but I was not prepared for how unreasonable he is. Am I doing something wrong maybe? I question my capabilities as a mom everyday. Could I possibly be depressed or maybe I just need a break. I can't feel like this anymore.. It's so draining. Some positive feedback would be nice.
