This is going to sound selfish but I'm going to say it since I am embarassed to tell anyone who knows me in real life..
I feel like I want my life back. I got married when I was 17 and now 20 years later I feel exhausted. I love my DH and kids (17,15 and 13) to death but I want to do things for myself too. I want to leave them. I don't want to miss out on my kids lives, but I want to live in my own house, without them, for at least a month. Knowing me I'm NEVER going to dare to leave but I feel bad for wanting to.
We've been having so many family problems for years, mainly financial, and my kids are good but they've all been acting up lately and I just need to get away from it all. I've been feeling that way for a while and I feel like I'm going to blow up!!
I know it sounds selfish and I feel extremely bad for feeling the way I do.. But I do.

I'm sorry you are feeling so bad. I can completely understand how hard it is. I don't know what the answer for you is but I do know there are other woman who have made the choice to leave and after some counseling and adjusting the children came to terms with it and ultimately everyone was better off. Maybe you could get your own place for a month or so just to get an idea of how things might go. Whatever you decide to do I hope it helps. Good luck.
