I am a stay at home mom, have been for almost 3 years,and u could say i am a single mom... My husband works long and alot of hours in the coal mine so he is maybe home for 2 days if that. i need to do something i never have a break from my children and i feel guilty cause i get frustrated with them easy. i have tried putting them in there room for alone time for them selves and for me but all they do is cry. i am already on depression medicine i just need to have a adult conversation more then anything. does anyone else feel like this or should i get some other help!?!?

i have the same problem. my bf works 3 jobs so i don't see him much. i have been going to talk to a therapist. i, of course have to take my son because there is noone to watch him (me 24/7). it usually is a hassle getting there, but it is always worth it. sometimes medicine isn't enough. what we do is hard!!!! never feel bad asking for help when you need it. nobody will think less of you (well they shouldn't) I hope you have your children on a bedtime schedule. it's good for them and Great for you! after they go to bed, take time to yourself. do whatever your heart desires (in the house of course). even if you just get to take a long bath, watch tv or eat in peace or catch up on some reading it definately helps! i admit that sometimes it is hard to unwind after the hard work we did but after they are in bed, just take some long deep breaths to clear your head. good luck!
