I feel like I am the worst

I have a beautiful, full of life, imaginative, three year older daughter that I was told I would never be able to have (female issues from a very small age). I am blessed enough to be enough to be a stay at home mom which all of you might agree in to days economic situation is rare. Anyway for the last six months or so I get her up I get her breakfast and turn on cartoons and then I pass out on the couch for up to 3 hours. Now let me explain. I have suffered from chronic anemia, and chronic migraines since I was 17. I have been able to control/manage everything for years with the help of my doctors.That is when I worked back east and flew from DC home and my Dr's where in DC. Well the Dr's here are lets just say not very good (for instance I had a c-section and the Dr that delivered my Daughter left the placenta in and I hemorrhaged for 3 weeks). I have been to seen the 2 neurologists here in town and their solution is to through more and more medication at it. I am not blaming my laziness all on my health issues because I just don't know what to do to to have more energy. I love life, I have a wonderful husband, a beautiful home. I just don't know what to do.

I am a stay home mom and I get into slumps sometimes as well. My suggestion is to make a daily schedule for yourself and your daughter. Plan outings and activities that will keep you busy and motivated. You don't want to look back on the time you had at home with her and regret not spending every possible second playing, teaching, and loving her. If you set goals for each day, you'll feel like you are accomplishing things and maybe it won't be so easy to sleep the day away. If you need a nap, schedule that time when baby is napping, so she isn't missing out on Mommy time, but you still get some rest.
