Very Depressed Stay at Home Mom

Karman - posted on 09/01/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




Hello everyone, I am new here, and I am seeking solace. I have been staying home with my two year old daughter for the past several months. Now I have my four year old niece to look after as well as my sister is climbing the ladder, so to speak. I am well educated, and in my younger years I had such ambition and drive. I did not picture my life this way. My husband does not understand, and he has the antiquated opinion that being a stay at home mom is not a job. We are having a lot of problems due to his outdated view. I just feel so empty, and then I feel really guilty for feeling empty. I absolutely love my daughter, and I would do anything for her. Through it all though, I feel like I have lost myself, and I have become so depressed sometimes I feel I can't take it. I have no one to talk to, and this only makes things worse. Please, if anyone has been through something similar or if anyone has something to share I would truly love to hear it. Thank you so much for reading this.

I know exactly how you feel. I had too make my partner c that it was a full time job. Every second he had at home I would make him do it even if he was trying to take a shower lol. He finally seen my side but we are also no longer together. I hope all goes well though because I felt so alone when I was at that time.
