Hi, i`m 35 & i have a 3 year old & twins at 2 years old. I work 2 days a week along side my husband and the rest of the days i`m at home with the kids. I have no social life or friends, but doesnt bother me much. I have been feeling very unhappy & sad for a couple of months. Ive also started to feel jealous and like i dont trust my husband. I have had dull headaches & pains in my chest.. I often think how different thinks would be if i only had my 1st child... i feel so down, so sad, and i find it hard to trust people.. some times i would feel ok then all of a sudden my head is full of worry & bad thoughts. what can it be.. is it stress, depression or am i just not happy with my life in general?
Does it really matter what you call it? You are miserable and becoming worse through jealousy etc.
Being a mother is the hardest job in the worl. Mother of three so young is a tremendous weight and you work as well.
You do need time away from the children, as we all do. You need some adult social interaction, some different things to talk about etc.
I would certainly suggest you go see your doc and talk about a diagnosis. I'd guess a referral to a therapist would be the best bet right now but either way, you need help with looking after these children. From your husband, from the docs and anyone else you know. Just a visit is often plenty to keep us feeling like we are alive for reasons other than chold care.
