Do you ever feel.....

Tired of being home all the time, tired of doing laundry and dishes and all that mess every single day?
I've been feeling very unmotivated and very unappreciated lately.
I also dont have any friends that live near me or have time to hang out with me and my 15 month old.
i'm having a lot of trouble meeting people around my age that dont mind being friends with someone that has a baby.
How do you keep the pep in your step?

I most def. understand this. I stay at home everyday with my daughter, my fiance goes to work and comes home. I really dont leave the house at all during the week. It sucked at first not being able to do the things I use to, but Im so use to being home now I kinda have panic attacks while in the car and feel not really comfortable going out places.. its weird.

Sara I resently found out about borderline personality disorder i have two children and one on the way. Was it normal for you to have explosions of rage (not to the children) while you were pregnant because I didn't notice any until I got pregnant.

Thanks for the pep talk ladies... I do feel a little better, I have borderline personality disorder and I have been off of behavioral meds for a few months now.. I'm using herbal remedies now, and I do still have my off days.. and the never ending routine does play a big part in that I suppose. but i do think that I will dye my hair and look for a mommy group that's in the Indianapolis area... wish me luck. =]

Of course I have been home a long time so things can definetly get to you. Go out & plan some fun stuff & do not worry the house will not fall down. Take some time for yourself a girls night, new hair do, just something that will give you a pick up. I have met most of my mommy friends with a small child actually on line from a group in my city. Good luck

Well, I guess my kids and my house and my dogs keep me on the move every single day!! Like you, I really don't have friends and the only place I go is to the store or to my parents' house becuase my hubby works all the time. If I didn't have the internet, I would go days without really "chatting" with adults! LOL...and of course I do a ton of complaining, but noone really listens, it just helps me feel better I guess. I know it's my house and it has to be cleaned and I have OCD when it comes to laundry, so it's done every day. I don't really have motivation to do it, it just needs to be done because it's my "job" in life (for now anyways!!). Summer is coming and I'm sure by taking your baby to the park, you could possibly make some mommy friends in your area = ] Hang inthere, girl, it'll all work out!
