  • OMG...some days it's all I can do not to throw my toothbrush in my bag and run far far away from here. There have been times when I've sat in my car in the parking lot after grocery shopping or something for over a half hour just thinking...What if I didn't go home?

    I love my husband he's a very good man and we have a good relationship. It's just so easy to loose yourself in the "everydayness" of wife and motherhood. I miss who I used to be so badly sometimes and I feel that if I don't do something about it I'll loose her forever and never be able to get her back.

  • You should get some marriage counseling. ...or if that is too expensive, read the book "The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate". It's a great book. I dont even have marital problems and it managed to make my good marriage even better. lol

  • I agree, get counsiling. It sounds like you are tired and need to communicate to your husband what you are feeling. I have heard about The Five Love Languages as a good read too. Give it a shot.

  • I feel that way all the time momma. Well, not ALL the time, but a lot of it. We get stuck in a downward spiral sometimes and have to work to pull out of it but it takes BOTH of us working together.
