  • Drink a couple glasses of milk, get some actual sunlight on your sin... see if that doesn't make a huge difference this time of year??? There is always "St. John's Wart" but beware, it can mess with birth control (be like not having any)... but that is a natural way to lift mood... oh, and Omega!!!

  • no worries mama! I know how you feel. Especially when I was a sahm I always felt bad spending money because I didnt earn it myself. I felt bad just putting gas in my car! SO would fill his tank, I'd put $5 in mine. Smoke alarms are a necessity in homes (I'm sorry, I dont know what a Hyla is) so dont feel bad for spending that money! Those things save lives!

  • I feel that way also! maybe some type of online job to make some extra money for you would make you feel better! I can help you with that is you want but if not that money is just as much yours as it is his don't feel bad girly if everybody is ok with it!
