    So a little over a year ago,

    my sister broke up with her boyfriend and she and her son now live with me and my parents. It's been a rough year. I find myself crying a lot more than usual due to the stress of it all. I have been my nephew's babysitter ever since my sister finally got a job. Then she got a...

    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...

    I am feeling very stuck in my life,

    I feel like I'm depressed but I haven't gone to anyone to check if I am or not and I'm afraid that if I am, then I might stay stuck for longer or for the rest of my life. My love life is very non existent, I've only had 1 girlfriend and that only lasted for 4 months while I was...
