Okay i turned 33 in July and I want to know if it it just me or does anyone else feel like they are more depressed or suffering a midlife crisis during there 30's. It is like a just woke up one day and felt complety overwhelmed and not sure how it got to this point. I am not happy with everything from my hair, clothes, body, shoes, lack of money, feel like a faliure cause i cant find a way to save to take my kids on a vacation once a year or do things that I feel they should be able to do cause they are wonderful. Nothing has happened drastic either, i am not preg. and there has been no death in the family. My kids are boy 13, girl 10 and boy 6. Just wanted to vent to see if anyone else is going through this and what things you might have been able to do to not feel that way.  I wish I had insurance so i could go to the doctor and see a counselor or get some time of meds to feel more noraml

I haven't really had that problem. I do get overwhelmed with money but I just try to do crazy budgeting. It hasn't been working lately so that sucks. I'm hoping DH gets a better job soon. Then things wouldn't be so tight. Anyway, I hope you get to feelin better.

thanks i hope things get better for you also. We only have 1 car so it hard for us to try and work more than what we do.

I went through something similar but it didn't last long.  It's so important to surround yourself with people and things that make you feel good about you.  I don't play aroud with negativity in my 30's.  Mental health is soooo important.  Try reading some good self-esteem books.  Make a list of everything about yourself that you are proud of.  Money comes and goes trust me.  I've lived on both sides of the fence. 

If you can't afford a vacation get creative.  Cosider camping in the back yard, or maybe you could afford to spend the night in a hotel in another town.  Let the kids jump on the beds and stay up late playing games, then treat them to a nice breakfast at Denny's for $2.99 or something before coming home.  I didn't grow up with a silver spoon so we had to learn how to enjoy what we had.  You can't change the past you can only move forward so try not to be so down on yourself.   Steve Jobs had millions and he is no longer here to enjoy his children his family or his money. He taught me one thing and that is "your health is your wealth".  Life is short so shake off all those negative feelings and enjoy it!  Wish you well!
