    I'm a mother, wife, and a full time employee.

    My mother in law and brother in law live with us in our tiny house, supposedly helping with the children while my husband and I work to support everyone, but it sure doesn't feel that way. The house is always a mess, it's cluttered, the kids don't have the time and attention...

    Dreams Seem Just Out of Reach...

     I laughed at the logo for this topic - since thats how I feel, only imagine that the teddy was waist deep - and was stretching his arms to try and reach something to pull himself in.  I feel like my dreams are ahead of me, and no matter how hard I seem to try they are...

    Between Life and Death

    I'm finding my depression very difficult to cope with and am not moving forward fast enough to make it any easier. I think that getting out of this existence is the only option but I am trapped because I want to be around for my brother so that he doesn't end up like me.
