I was in a motor cycle wreck years back and required massive spinal and brain surgury. My children are the only thing that keep my heart beating but due to my disability I'm forced to watch thier lives from the side lines. I feel so guilty for not being the mother they deserve. I've developed major depression, and anxiety attacks seem to be at least 5 days a week. My husband lost his good paying job and was promised another one with the same pay but it turned out to be 1/4 of what he was making before. I don't have any friends or family to speak of so no help with the chilren there. I seldom get to go to the doctors anymore because I don't have a sitter. I have never been so low in my life and can't see a way out

Im so very sorry that you have so much going on in your life! I think as mom's in general we are all hard on ourselves for not being "that mom" and it's unfair to compare ourselves to anybody else. I have a 2 year old little boy who has a big developmental delay and microcephaly and there are days when the unknown is overwhelming and I feel like I don't know how to handle it all and be the best mom to him and my older 2 children as well. I get through those days because of my faith in Jesus and I know that I can do all things through Him who gives me strength! Its hard and I can't know where you are in your life because my situation is different, but we all struggle with life and being a mom, and health, and money is something that everybody struggles with at some point! Just hang in there and keep doing the best that you can do where you are now in your life, and that is all that matters! Your kids love you for who you are and need you in so many ways! Hang on to that happy thought and don't give up! Life gets down sometimes but there is a point that it can go nowhere but up! Have faith that you and your family will get there!
