I've always wanted to homeschool, I already have tons of curriculum and manipulatives (they were given to me, we'll see what I actually use) , I think it would be great for our family time (DH doesn't work a normal M-F schedule), but...The past several months I've been struggling with anxiety and depression. I know I'm not spending as much time with other people because social situations are part of the anxiety trigger and depression obviously makes me not want to go out either. Some days I have a really hard time engaging my kids. DD1 is very social and I want to make sure I meet that need for her. I just worry that I won't manage well on the down days. Some days are ok though and I worry that "giving up" (what it feels like *for me* not implying that anyone else sending their child to school is giving up) would make me more depressed.
Anyhow, Is anyone else a homeschooling mama with depression? What do you do? How do you manage?
