This is very embarrassing for me to admit so please try not to judge because I am asking for help.
I feel that lately my emotions have been all over the place, never in a good way though. I am either so depressed all I wan to do is sleep or I am so angry that no one can even talk to me or I scream. I know this is wrong and I cry every time it happens, but when I am in my angry state or mind I take it out on my daughter. I have NEVER hit her and never will but I do spank her harder than I know I should or for something very stupid and I also scream at her and say very hurtful things. I know I am wrong and that this makes me a very bad mother so please do not bash because I already know. I know that I need help and I have told my husband and he is going to help me but I am not covered on his insurance yet and I dont know if we can afford counseling or anger managment (he works as an on-call officer so hours are never the same). I have no idea how to ask for help or who to ask, I dont know where to look for a good counselor or anything, please give me some advice!!
I want to add that I haven't always been this way, there was a time when I was an amazing mother and I just want to get back to that!!
