    What Was I Thinking

    Stay at home mom. No family close by. Good friends moved out of state. Not very sociable so have not made new friends. Have a 16mo old daughter. So what made me think having a baby was a good idea...is what I think most days. I have a very supportive husband. In fact, I truly...

    My oldest is out of the house and my youngest who has lived with his father 3000 miles away has just moved back in. I hate the stupid quirks that have come with him. He is whiney, dismissive and ungrateful for anything. And, he lies. About everything. I dread pulling in the yard...

    My kids tell me they hate me

    and wish I was dead, they raise hell, destroy the house after I clean it. They never listen to me. And all I do is try to be a good mother. They make me feel like ****. I love them but I wish I wasn't a mother.

    Feel Trapped

    I feel trapped by my child - I can't do anything I want to do anymore, not even 'nip' to the shop for a pint of milk... it's tedious, relentless, exhausting and joyless today.  Of course it's not like this everyday and I feel guilty and evil for even saying it, but today I have...
