My child is 4 months old & I've been pretty depressed off & on. I don't have many friends or much of a life besides my three children. I've felt very depressed like I'm a failure as a mother, that I should be more successful in life. While everyone else I know is working, I'm at home & feel like my life is passing me by. I love my kids & there's no where else I'd rather be. I'm not sure why I feel this way & would like other SAHMs opinons on this. I have no money coming in besides child support so I know that's part of the problem. Everyone acts like it's easy to do what ever you wanna do with 3 kids. I have a boyfriend that pays the rent & takes care of his child with me , is starting to tell me my other 2 kids are " my problem". I talked to my doctor about ppd but she brushed me off saying " Lets just see how you feel in a month or two". Please help.

It sound like you need to pray and find something that you like doing. You can't let yourself fall deep in depression because your kids need you. It might help you to find someone to talk to as a counselor...... But remember that your kids bring you enjoyment and you the same to them no matter little they are!!!!!!!!!
Try some home base business opportunity that so you will be able to do something and still be with your kids...... I am a SAHM and I understand that being home sometimes can drive you crazy(LOL)!!! So I started a home base business opportunity that I love doing and produce a great income........... If you want to know more about it let me know and I will post the links for.....
