I am just coming to the realization that I should never of had kids. I am unhappy being a mom almost every moment of every day. I don't want to feel this way. I want to bond with my kids and be a happy mom like most everybody else. I find no joy in their smiles and no joy in playing games with them. I do it and I smile but I am miserable whenever they are home. I have seriously considered giving them up for adoption to somebody who could love them the way they are supposed to be loved. I can't help feeling though that it would be worse for them emotionally for me to give them up when I am trying so hard. We are all in counseling and have been for 6 months. I was hoping I would be feeling happier by now. They are 6 and 7 years old.

Have you always felt this way? even when they were babies? I am so sorry you are missing out of being a mother, it can be exhausting and it can also be exhilarating to grow with your child and see the world through their eyes, hope you get the help you need, hugs.
