I don't ever, EVER hurt my kids. But I do tend to yell at them and get easily frustrated with them. I feel like such a piece of shit parent about it too. I was physically and mentally abused as a child and still suffer from it. I always apologize to them afterwards as well.
I have such bad depression that I just go into the bathroom at night sometime or livingroom, leave all the lights off and cry and cry and cry. I could just about die for all I care. If it weren't for my kids.... there is NO CHANCE I would still be around. But I do everything in my power to hide my depression from my children.
My anxiety makes it hard to work and go to the grocery store sometimes. I then tend to get aggrivated and start to get tempermental before we can make it half way through the store.
I so badly want to speak to someone about it and get something to help me even if it is a prescription.... I'd rather take a medication then ruin my children's lives with my stupid issues.
But, if I go and tell a doctor or therapist this.... could I stand a chnce of them calling DFCS on me, opening a case t otry and take my kids from me or having them on my back all the time because they'll think I'll hurt my kids or something?

I am so glad to hear that you are acknowledging the problem and want to seek help for it. Things that will get your kids taken away. Not admitting there is a problem and a neighbor calling CPS on you. Not being able to get the kids to school b/c of being so depressed. The second one was my big issue when my kids dad went to jail for dv. It took everything I had to get up in the am. I did get on meds for it and it helped a lot. My ex also took me back to court once he got out of jail and accused me of being an unfit parent. As long as you are in counseling, as long as the kids needs are being met and you are trying, there isnt a thing the judge will do. I am proud of you for wanting to get help for it, instead of hiding behind it and the situation only getting worse. As the others have said, all the info you give to counselor is kept confidiental. I wish you so much luck with this hon
