Seriously. We just voted and I took a pic of us with the stickers and I look so awful. Not too mention I never get a break and sometimes I think I might just crack.

I have no help at all. And if you say my husband, that's not possible bc of how much he works.

My son is one next week. This has been a hard year. Lol.

What do you do when you feel like I do right now?

*hugs*

I try to schedule "me" time during naps or after bedtime, instead of always using that time to catch up on chores etc.  Maybe join a play group and trade babysitting or have playdates?

Sounds like you need to get out more...not just alone, you can go out with your buddy there and still feel more human and more you.  Sounds like mild depression caused by stress too.  Playdates would be great for you.  Are there any local mommy groups? Mommy and me story time at the library?

Theres no shame in finding a sitter a few times a month to go and do something for yourself
