Hello, I'm a newbie here. I haven't been a part of a board group or discussion group since my last pregnancy.

I'm Renee, 31, single mom of two boys, both special needs. I have PTSD, BPD and severe anxiety, I've been fighting a losing battle with Worker's Compensation, and Social Security... and just about out of the strength to cope. 

Today, I literally said, and meant it more than ever, that my boys were the only reason I was alive. Saying that, and meaning it, made me decide to reach out for support. 

I have terrible social anxiety, but I'm hoping I can step out of my comfort zone and find comfort.


Renee

Hi, my name is Carla and I am 28 years old. I have a beautiful 2 1/2 year old daughter who I love to pieces, but lately has been witnessed to me being sad and I don't like her seeing me like that. I have been feeling very strange lately and I am not sure why. I know my husband has been lying to me a lot about very stupid things. I lost my mom 2 years ago and I haven't been the same.

Hello! I'm new to CafeMom. My therapist suggested I try to put myself out there more and interact with other moms, that I might learn from them how they dealt/deal with depression and what has helped them in the past.
I'm currently pregnant with my second child, my son Noah is 14 months. I just found out that I'm expecting a little girl in June.
When I learned the news I thought I'd be over the moon, I've always wanted a little girl, but I be found that I'm not "moved" by this pregnancy at all. I'm not rushing out to baby stores to pick out little pink clothes or pinning nursery ideas on Pinterest, like I thought I would. I just feel so detatched. I've heard it's normal to not be as invested in your second pregnancy because you're so busy taking care of your first. But to feel nothing at all?

Hi, I'm Tina. I'm a 40 year old married woman with a 15 year old son Trevor who has Autism. I also homeschool him. It can be very stressful. I have recently starting seeing a therapist about my past trauma. It has been really hard to tell someone what happened to me. My husband didn't even know. My marriage was falling apart. I had to do something. I have been carrying it around with me all these years. My shoulders feel so heavy and I'm so tired.

Welcome to the group!  Many of us here have the same issues with PTSD and BPD so feel free to jump in wherever.

Welcome!  I know jobs are tight everywhere but keep applying.  Maybe try a temp agency or go to a career center.

Welcome!  Maybe it would be a good idea to see a therapist to deal with grieving your mom and dealing with your DH.  It is okay to show emotion around your kids.
