Ecoteat, I'm so sorry you are feeling so stressed. And so sorry about your grandmother, too. Many hugs to you!
Sydnee, mama, where do you find your energy? Seriously, do you have some recommendations for supplements or something?
I would love to have your energy.
Max, I'm so impressed by your knitting acumen! I think the knitting group is a fabulous idea. I wish I could find something like that here. Unfortunately, most women don't SAH, so it's harder to organize.
I have to say, I am still really struggling. With feeling tired and depressed and lonely, but also feeling like I have no place-- no purpose-- I think partly because DH is working so hard these days and is doing so much, in comparison I feel pretty useless. I'm probably too hard on myself, but I'm just so unhappy. I feel like I need to figure out what and who I want to be once I'm finished with the birthing/nursing/caring for little ones thing. DH keeps saying he wants three kids, and I keep thinking, "at the rate we're going now, I'll never be anything but a mom". Which is so weird, because I LOVE being a mom! I've never had a job that I really loved, or even really liked. Why all of a sudden do I think that would bring meaning or purpose to my life????
I dunno. I'm all mixed up. I'm seeing the Gyn on Wednesday and I'll talk to her about these feelings I'm struggling with. I really don't want to go on meds, but at the same time I feel sooooo low.
Speaking of the Gyn thing, I made an appt for early morning, talked it over with DH, who agreed he could watch DS while I was at the apt. It's in the next building, so it's hardly far or complicated or anything. Well, DH FORGOT. And he has some super-major-mega important thing that morning. I'll ask our one local friend if she could possibly watch DS for me, otherwise he'll have to come along. I was so frustrated with DH when he told me. This apt is so important to me, and to him it's so UNimportant he forgot all about it!!!!!
Ugh ugh ugh.
Hope everyone else is doing well.
