NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY I CAN'T SHAKE THIS SADNESS THAT I FEEL. I FEEL AS THOUGH I JUST WANT TO GIVE UP. IT FEELS LIKE NO-ONE KNOWS WHAT I AM GOING THROUGH AND THEY ALL TELL ME THAT I NEED TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE AND DO SOMETHING. THE THING IS WHEN I DO TRY TO DO SOMETHING I END UP BEING EXHAUSTED. I PUT ON THIS HAPPY FACE LIKE EVERYTHING IS OKAY BUT I FEEL SHITTY AND MY ATTITUDE HAS BEEN SHITTY. I JUST FEEL SO ALONE. I AM A HORRIBLE MOTHER AND WIFE. MY SON PREFERES MY HUSBAND OVER ME ALL THE TIME....I AM JUST READY TO GIVE UP.

Jan. 28, 2008 at 1:00 PM Why are you so sad? My stepson who my husband and I have full custody us, prefers his daddy over me too. It's a boy thing. I would not take offense to it at all!! Your son loves his mommy too!!!

I know how you feel. I feel the same way, too. I have an 11 month old, and another coming in almost 8 weeks.

Everyone keeps telling me, "Oh, it's hormones." Blah. Should hormones make me feel a sadness that comes from so deep within? I feel so sad and isolated. I shouldn't feel that way- I have no reason to. That's what makes it so very disturbing. That, and this sadness feels like it is sucking the life out of me.

You aren't a bad wife and mother. You just feel like you are. I feel like that, too.

Don't give up. You aren't alone.
