Hey everyone I am a stay-home-mom. I stay home with my kids for 12 hours by myself. I pretty much don't anyone to talk all day. My kids are 2 and 4 and at times they drive me crazy. Most of my time I am fussing at my kids or cleaning up after them. I wake up 6 in the morning and go to bed around 10. I am 1st one up and last one to bed. My husband is always asking me why I am depression. When I do get of the house, it usually to Walmart. At the moment I don't have my license. Even if I did, I would have a few hours to myself without the kids.

I don't know what to do?

Do not be scared or embarrassed to tell your doctor. They live that role to help. Lots of people millions i should say are on medication including myself for anxiety and depression which it helps a lot. Please just try and call the doctor. Men usually don't understand our feelings so just ignore what he says or pretend to agree with him so you don't get in a argument.
I watched a video online on yahoo about 2 sons got into paint and the father tried to punish them but he couldn't stop laughing. I had to tell you that because it just reminded me of you situation.

Sarah at least you are one of the few people in the world that understand being anemia is not safe. I tell people I am an anemia is like telling them I just a common cold or small headache. Since everyone is telling me to go the doctor I will go.

Bath time is my alone time. As my family goes, they say call them when I need too. But every time I do they make excuses why they can't help. And the sad thing, they understand the situation I am in better than you guys. All of friend work :( So after I put the kids in bed, I will use bath time as my alone time. Right now I working on some artwork that is helping me not to feel so depress. :)

Can you go to school online? Start from there. I am going crazy myself I finally start a job its temporary through a temp agency but it is a start. Do you like to cook, read etc. I literally was stressed yesterday and cried and emotional depressed and I started yelling at the kids and i had to get up and cook so I made a cake. It really helps. I too get up early but I try my best to go to bed around 8 which works.

Tresha, I actually already started on business from home. http://cmjshop.storenvy.com/ that is my online store. But sad to say, I have not made much money from it. I have gave up, everyday when I get the chance I work on some artwork. For the past week I have been working on artwork and that make me feel good. Still want to get some time away from the kids.

Hi Tina,

Have you ever considered starting your own business from home? This way you can earn an income and have flexible hours to be with your kids. In a couple years your kids will be in school and you would have some more free time. Why not prepare your self from now to become a mom entrepreneur like me. I used to work a 9-5 before and trust me, mothers are not built for that, now I earn much more than before and can afford the best in child care.

Contact me if you feel you are ready to take the leap.

Thanks. I try to explain to my husband in the past about this. At one point I kept waking up being sad and depress for no reason. Then there was another time I was just bored and nothing interest me for the month. Not even art. A few time I thought about killing myself. I am fine right now. I told my husband about all of this. But I like before but he think only it has something to do with my period or me being an anemia.

I have a few problem with sleeping or taking a nap.

1) If I am not sleepy or sick, I can't sleep
2) My kids into too much.

The other day I broke my glasses. I end up getting a migraines because of that. When I wake up my youngest daughter found my paint and painted the wall. Me and my husband got 98% of the paint of the wall. Part of me was upset with her and the part of me was laughing in my head.

No public transportation. That is why me and my husband is working on me getting my license. I can drive. Not legally. He plan on taking a day off and I go get my license.

I though about going outside, but I forgot to tell you guys I am anemia. I get tried very easy. Iron medicine help but not much.

I am kinda of scare to tell my doctor about my depression. I know should not. But I am. My husband only it has something to do with my period or me being an anemia. I know these play a role. But I keep trying to explain to him that is not only reasons.
