Hello, I am a mother of 5 amazing children. twin soon to be 17yr old girls, an 11 girl, a 6 yr old girl and now a 5 month old son. I recently became very depressed and resentful towards my hubby. 2 yrs ago I was finally feeling fit and youthful. I played Roller Derby in my spare time and had adult friends to hang out with, as my kids where all at a good age. When I became pregnant I lost that. I stay at home, overweight and depressed. I hate the way I look to the point that I brake down and cry every day. I cant sleep. I am starving myself. and anxiety ridden. I dont even want to leave the house anymore. What the hell happened to me. Why am I like this now? I put on a fa-sod everyday. But my older girls are starting to see through it and I am so confused about my marriage that all I do is push him away. With this new insurance stuff, I cant even find a desent Dr to help me.. I just need a friend. Someone to talk to.. plz help

I am so glad you wrote me. And I am saddened that we are going through this. Ugh. And I am sorry for your split too. It sounds like your a very strong lady. I couldnt imagine life without Casey. Losing all that weight how do you feel. Did it help fill the void or do you still feel the same about yourself. I am losing weight but I am getting more angry and disappointed. Also holding the secret from him is such a heavy burden and a lot work hiding it.
I am 33 and feel as if my life is stagnant, nothing to look forward to. However I did drink a beer last night (not a good option, but) I slept like a baby and my husband took care of the baby and got up with the kids. I read an article that suggested when down and out about yourself force yourself to put on something that you don't feel comfy in (for me everything but sweats now~a~days) that shows one part of your body that you do like.. I'm doing it. I keep wanting to change, but its weird, when I walk past the mirror, instead of crying.. My mind is like "cute legs' lol.

Hi Jamie, I am also a mum of 5 kids, I have also been in a similar situation as you, I stopped going and eating, dropped from a size 24 to 8. Me and my hub (after 20) years split last year, and I had to do some thing. I am new to this site, so not sure how it works, but if you ever want to chat, I am here, my kids are 19, 11,10,7,6 and I'm 38 (god I got old) :-) take it day, and try and find something thatmakes you feel good. My feel good today, was I managed to hoover the hole house, sounds not alot, but it's made me feel a bit happier today.
