I should be enjoying the time by myself, but I hate it, and to top it all off, my soon to be ex hates me for leaving and tells me every chance he can get just how much he hates me.

I'm going through a pretty bad depression just learning how to deal with this , counseling has helped, but i'm so much more lost when my boys are with him and not me. i'm trying to be fair and share, but to go from seeing my boys all day every day (toddlers) to part time and when i have them part time I am also now working, so that has cut my time with them by over half... help i am going crazy and i dont know anyone else that is going through this.....

I know this is an older post, but I wish I had seen it sooner because I can't tell you how many times I have asked myself the same thing! I was a full time stay at home Mom for 5 years, and had to go to working full time and sharing joint custody- the most difficult change ever. If you are still interested in connecting, please do.. I would love to make other mom friends who can relate to shared custody and working full time!
