Hi everyone...I have been away a long time and I'm back because I'm scared. I am starting to feel very depressed again. I still feel like I can not get out of this deep dark pit I have dug for myself yrs ago. Its like this dark cloud keeps following me around and just when I see a little sunlight peering through the clouds close up quickly and get thicker and darker. Why am I so stagnant? Sometimes I can't even move. All I want to do is sleep or just sit there. Am I just a lazy person like my husband thinks? or my body won't function like it should because my mind won't let it. Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed, so alone, so scared of the future, very tired that I withdrawl from everything and do only what has to be done, like changing diapers and feeding the kids and dressing them. My husband just opened up a new business so he is NEVER here. I do not feel connected to him anymore. I can not see my life without him. I want more. I want to feel special, like I did before we were married. We have 5 beautiful children and I love them so much...I just feel like I can't do this whole thing on my own. I know I have no choice and they need me. Someone has to pay the bills...I just wish we could enjoy life more together instead of apart. I'm just so frustrated right now. I know I will get over it. I guess I am just looking for a little encouragement, thanks...

no fake you feel overwhelmed and depressed....5 kids...no help...

Look at the w isdom in only doing what HAS to be done....in a way you are saving energy for the rest of the day..tomorrow and the future.

Unless you have had some major change I think you are probably STILL depressed...

You do need help and not just for the depression.

My mother inlaw had her husband die when she had 6 kids all under the age of 7. My husband remembers that she occasionally "went away" when they were little. these were the times she was so overwhelmed by raising 6 kids all alone she would have a nervous breakdown.

You need to talk to hubby and also get some medical help for the depression. and maybe some counseling too.

Without a break and some help You aren't gonna enjoy those kids the way you should...

Your tired sweetie, you have a lot on your plate, and the new baby, lets not forget post partum depression, you needed help before , and DUH, more on your plate, and more on his plate. We can only handle so much, only pretend so long the old one foot infront of the other, makes the light at the end of the tunnel seem so far away. Time seems to be standing still, but the kids are growing fast, I know not fast enough, the laundry seems to grow faster, like isnt it kool the way the kid at the market puts the stuff in the car , but never offers to come home and put it away?? i have tried bribes, but where is the help that we really need? Hang on winter is almost over, be glad for the little things, like not living on the River, and having to pail water out of the basement, now laugh.
