I'm turning 30 in 3months and today I woke up feeling so unaccomplished. I've felt like this before but today is different. I feel depressed, i think I am depressed. I just wanna cry on cue like a baby and curl up in a ball. I have a husband who has his Master's Degree and a great career. We have 3 children all under the age of 10 and they are great. I am a stay at home mom and my son will be in school next fall. What in the heck am I suppose to do. I never finished college and I don't think I even have credits to transfer over worth anything. I just feel like I had all these dreams of a different life and it's far from that. I have written several books that I haven't published. I have some of the world's best inventions but trying to get them patented, well takes money I don't have. I just don't know where to go from here. Anyone else feel this way?

Thanks Holly. That's so sweet. I am proud of what I have and I don't wanna sound like a complainer. It's just that I feel like in the midst of being a wife and mom, I have lost or possibly never found a part of me. I started so young. But I am going to get my books published. I love to write (children's books) and poetry. Guess it's time to focus on what I'm good at and not the negative. The negatives can really weigh me down.
