Your very welcome, sometimes I feel so alone when it comes to being a mother that I just want to reach out to those that feel the same as I do. Because feeling alone in it all makes you feel like your a horrible person. I am a stay at home mom, I've been home for the last 3yrs. And it's really taken a toll on me. I feel like I've been so isolated that I am actually scared of the real world. I feel like I don't know how to cope doing other things outside of how I've been living the past 3yrs. My meds have helped some, I notice that me and my son have a better relationship when I'm feeling better. The strattera helps alot with my ups and with the racing mind I had, it's a relief. And I do feel a lot different then I was but I'm actually going back to the Dr next week because I need a adjustment in my meds. I've been stuggling lately and feel that they are not working more so for my depression, so I'm still on the road to getting better. I'm also trying to find a good
psychiatrist because I want to deal with all of my issues and not just take meds. I don't stuggle with just parenthood, I stuggle just as a person, feeling so broken and lost. Feeling like I'm a failure having no self confidence or self esteem and feeling all the hurt and pain from all of the constant emotions I feel.
Things will get better, I have plans to go back to school to be a transcript
ionist. And I've met a potential friend that lives in my neighborhood, we get together once a week for a playdate. My son also goes to daycare twice a week because I feel that he needs it, to learn, interact with other kids and be in a different environment. It's no fun for him being home with me. Plus I get a break. I just can't look around the corner right now and see the good
until I start feeling a little better with a tweak in my meds. There is hope for all of us, we just have to keep trying and the good
thing is, you want to change, you want to feel better and feel different then how your feeling, thats a great step. I hope this time around it will be different for you, I had a bad experience with getting help a while back and it took me a year and a half to do it again. And I'm finally on my way for a different outcome. We just have to take one day at a time and try to live in the moment! Anyway sorry if I talked about
myself lol but we are all here for you and I'm glad that we have put you at ease a bit!
