Husband is in the military, so he isn't home that much, and I am raising our daughter again because he isn't around much. I am not going through menopause but I feel like I have lost myself. It is not just you. It is so hard being a mom and having to do everything yourself. You are considered a bad mother if you focus on yourself and not your children, then you feel guilty, but in the process you lose who you are. In the words of Emma Goldman:
. . . the mother - what a terrible picture! Is there indeed anything more terrible, more criminal, than our glorified sacred function of motherhood?
It is such a difficult and fine line to walk. You are not alone and their are kindred spirits out there!
