Do you ever feel like you need drugs or alcohol to get through the day? I do.
I am ashamed to say that I feel like my life would be easier to manage if I were slightly drunk all day or high on Ativan...which I have for panic attacks (that are rare). I haven't touched one in months...
It's getting to the point where I have an alcoholic drink every night before bed...
I was diagnosed with depression several years ago, I've been on and off meds. I'm slowly trying to get back on them right now. I have two children under the age of two and every day feels like a slow, lingering nightmare. I love them dearly and treat them like gold but I feel myself slipping under the ice...
My husband says I try to do too much around the house like 'supermom' but I do it because I'm so afraid of ever being called 'lazy'. One of my children will be in school during the day in 3 years time but I feel like I don't know how to get by until then.
If one isn't crying or screaming, the other is...I know that's the way it goes but I can barely handle it. Yes I have family a couple of hours away to help out but that doesn't help me in the long term, it's just temporary help. Has anyone been here before?
I am normal for feeling this way?!
