I am Traci.  I am a mom, wife, daughter, sister, best friend, lover, co-worker, cancer and divorce survivor.  Been homeless, had car reposessed and I am a Christian who has an awesome relationship with Jesus Christ who has been there and gotten me through everything.  I love my kids and my husband however I refuse to lose my identity because of them.  If you say you have no identity, you need to find your identity.  I was at one time like you when I was in my 1st marriage and home all the time while hubby was deployed.  I made the decision to not lose my identity in kids, or whatever.  Good luck to the OP.

thats the thing i'm kind of afraid of. for the last 7 years, more than 7 years really (if you include the pregnancy), its been dedicated to being his mom, being his entire world, his everything... and i know that one day, that'll stop. one day, he'll go off to college, he'll be moving out on his own, he'll form his own interests/relationships, etc... and then that'll leave me with absolutely nothing at all. i know i'll be his mom my entire life and with that, the duties will change; from changing diapers to teaching him to read, teaching him to drive a car and eventually talking with him about any problems he has... but i dont want MY world to revolve around him, esp once he becomes the adult, making his own adult decisions. =(

Do you have a career? Or a hobby? Or something you are really passionate about that makes you feel really good?

I don't know. I'm somebody to everyone else but I'm nothing to me. I don't even know if that makes sense but that's how i feel.
