I don't think I should be a mom.

I would first like to state that i have the most beautiful baby boy. He is wonderful in every way. I look at him and i know he is bright and will have a great future. But deep down i feel like i will get in the way of that.
I fight everyday to stay by my sons side. But everything that has happened to me,
My husbands abuse and infidelity.
My sickness and surgery,
And my live one passing...
I dont feel the same love i do for my son.
I dont have the urge to hold him. I want to take care of him, i really do but i cant stand to lie to myself. Im not meant to be a mother.
I shouldnt be running around aimlessly hoping that he will come out to be the best.
I am not designed for this thankless job.
My husband runs free while i spend my days cleaning dirty diapers and sulk.
I am selfish and horrible for feeling this way.
Is there anyway to get out of this feeling?
Before i give up on my son.

You need to get yourself into counselling ASAP. You also don't have to put up with your husband's abuse and cheating.
You are a strong woman and you would be so much better off without someone who doesn't treat you the way you should be treated.
You need to build up your self esteem for the sake of yourself and your son.
