The worst Mother in the world would not know they have done something that has caused a little confusion for the kids Purply. You are not the worst Mother, far from it by the sounds of things.

I am sorry, but you had a few drinks, so what? You are allowed to have a good time when you are on holiday, it's not a big deal, honestly. (I know you shouldn't on the meds as well) Please stop being so hard on yourself.

Ok, how old are the kids? At some stage you would have told them about the first hubby, so you told them on the weekend.....you didn't mean to, but you did. That happens, we all can say too much at times, and I know had you not had a drink, you may not have picked that time to do it, but now it's out.

Sorry, but you are being way too hard on you, you had a good weekend way, you are allowed to have a holiday.

I agree with Awty,

Give yourself a break. You are a good mother. We all make mistakes, it isn't that bad. It justs feels that way to you right now.

I am glad that you had a holiday and had some time to relax.

Hugs, Karen

Try not to be so down on yourself. You are a good mother and friend to your twins, I am sure of that. I know that the old you is inside just wanting to come out and she will. You just have to get though this difficult period first.

There is a book called "Feeling Good" by Dr. David Burns. It has been around a long time. It is a good book to get you back feeling good again. I picked up a copy on Amazon for six dollars used. And it was in really good shape. If you get a chance, try to get that book and read some of it. I think you will find it helpful.

Counseling also helps. Could that be an option for you? It really helps us to feel better about ourselves. Providing you find a good match for yourself. I have had pretty good luck with counselors and psychologists. There have only been two that I wasn't comfortable with. I have had several during different periods thoughout my life. I find psychologists to be the best. But there are some good social workers and counselors out there.

Think about it and let me know what you think.

I hope that you feel better soon. Keep posting.

Hugs, Karen

Try to give yourself a break today. Tomorrow will come soon and you will see the doc. Try to take it easy today and cut yourself some slack. We can't feel good all of the time even if we don't have depression. Depression makes everything seem so much worse. Make sure to do some relaxed breathing. In through the nose and out through the mouth. Called smelling the roses and blowing out the candles. Do that for about ten to twenty times. It will relax you. It almost sounds like a panic attack. Either way, the breathing will help.

Best wishes for you my friend.

Hugs, Karen
