Being a SAHM is very rewarding, but also has many challenges. Often I have felt cut off from the world. I love being a mom, and loved that I could spend so much time with my kids, but that didn't mean I didn't miss being with other adults. It sounds like you are depressed, and need some form of outlet from being a SAHM. If you need to, get a part time job. Get yourself out of the house. Join mothers groups in your area that include the kids so you can relate to other mothers.
