My dd's father is here in NY State. My family is in California. I'm absolutely miserable here, and it's starting to affect the way I parent my daughter. I'm listless and exhausted, unable to maintain her daily routine because of my depression. She's spending too much time watching Handy Manny and not enough time outdoors, reading books, etc.
Her father sees that I am depressed, and feels that I should go ahead and move back to California if it will make me happy (and it will). But I don't think it's fair to separate my dd (2 years old) from her father. She loves him to death, and he's totally attached to her. He says he will find a way to keep in contact with her on a daily basis.
It's such a big decision, and I need to decide quickly, because I'm sinking deeper and deeper into a state of despair and apathy.
Can you ladies offer me any advice? Please?
