Hi I'm a stay at home mom with a 7 month old little girl and a 5 year old little boy... My husband works 7 days a week he owns is own bisness so he literally gets no day off he leaves before we all wake up and usually doesn't get home till after 7 at night and when he does get home it's usually he will eat take a nap then take a shower then bed I have been completely stressed I doneverything for my kids from feeding to bathing to putting them to bed I get up with them in the middle of the night every night other when exhaustion sets in and I don't wake up and she wakes up my husband then he will wake up go get her and bring her to me in our bed. i love my kids more than anything they are my world but I have given up everything my job and career my friend my independent everything I fought so hard get.. I don't know what to do I have no help what so ever I thought grandparents were suppose to want to help and spend time with there grand babies but that's not the case they have come around maybe 4 times and my baby freaks out because she doesn't know them.... It's just really sank in my car has been broke down for a few weeks and I feel like I am going insane... Like I am trapped in this house... I think it would be better if my husband was home more or helped more but it is like that is asking to much from him... 7 day a week I do the same thing over and over I feed babies change diapers do laundry clean house and fix supper I am so exhausted and tired I don't even have the engery to spend time with my husband at the end of the night... Maybe I would feel better if I went back to work I don't know... I just need advise on what I should try to do to change things so I don't spend all day just crying and being frustrated at every little thing! I just know I can't keeping going every single day feeling this horrible about life I am ready to get on the right path and start feeling better about my self... Seems like there is just something wrong with me or maybe I wasn't ment to be able to Handel being a mother I don't know I just feel lost!!! Please help!!!

Some people (like myself) are not meant to be stay at home moms. Get a part time job. Get your life and identity back. I love my kids more than words but I go bonkers sitting at home all day. Also, get a hobby. Learn to paint or write... Do something for yourself. It makes a world of difference

Dear Kayla
I know this is an old post but I hope you're feeling better and manged to solve your problem.
I have a fourteen months old son and I have been feeling the same way for a long time.
I'm an immigrant, I have no family here nor friends.
I'm trying my best to find a part time job but with no luck.
Just remember me in your prayers so god gives me the strength until I find a job.
