Friends without kids

I met up with some friends yesterday basically for the first time since giving birth and it just felt really weird! I felt awkward, like I had nothing to talk about except baby. One of my friends was thinking of trying soon and when I asked her about it she said 'I'm putting it off because I don't want to ruin my bo...

Lonely….

Depressed

I’m feeling depressed and hopeless. I barely can talk to any one that’s around me at home that includes my child’s father. I say this because before his mom past away she was the only one I would talk to about what I was going on and what I’ve been feeling. It’s hard talking to ppl. Now she’s gone keeping in contact...

I feel guilty when I’m not up cleaning or cooking.

It’s something I picked up from childhood. Any time I am sitting still or in a relaxed state, I start to feel guilty and think about things I should be doing. Does anyone else feel this way? How do you cope with the feeling?

Mom guilt sucks.

I went on a date last night, the first time leaving my almost 2 year old. I left her at home with her grandma and my sister. I was gone for 2 hours and had a few drinks, and it was great fun! I came back to put her to sleep. Waking up today, I have this overwhelming guilt for leaving her to do something for myself. ...
