Okay so I have this phobia (emetophobia..which makes me afraid to be around anyone who feels nauseous or who is vomiting) and Im also dealing with PPD..and a big stress of moving FAR away from family!..But honestly lately I wonder why I had kids? I mean maybe its just I feel 'trapped' and havent lived much of my life but I love my kids and I always want them to know mommy is there for them, but yet I feel so depressed that I dont see the light at the end of the tunnel! And Im even on antidepressants but yet nothing seems to work!
What am I suppose to do? I really need advice! Please dont judge me as a bad parent because I LOVE my children and I NEVER EVER would hurt them or wish any pain or suffering apon them! They are my life..*sigh*I dont know what to do anymore

I am so sorry you are going through this. I can see that you love your children very much but sometimes their love is not enough to make you happy. It has to start with you. It would be so easy for me o sit here and say just get over it and be happy because life is short but I wont because I know that it is not that simple. Maybe you need to talk to a professional who can help you. Depression can be a scary thing. After I had my son I was so depressed. I was far from home and even though I had my son and my husband I felt alone. I went to see a phycriatist for a while and I am doing much better but the main thing I learned was that I needed to make me happy first. I hope this makes since to you and helps a little.
