Sick of people judging me

I hate that it bothers me what people think but I can't stand it. I'm a single mum and I have no single mum friends and barely any friends with kids. Is it just me or does anyone else feel like your friends treat you differently when you're a single mum? They feel sorry for you and look at you like poor you you're ...

Overwhelmed

Ever just feel like you’re screaming for help but nobody hears you? This silent battle sucks.. I have no family support or friends that understand. My partner is my only source of support… but it’s hard to go to him too.

Young moms how do we... maintain a social life with a baby?

I'm 22 and this is my first baby. I never had a social life before, but me and my bf would go and hang out with his friends a lot and go drinking too. I feel like I didn't take advantage of that as much as I should've because now I'm feeling FOMO. I can't wait to hold my baby and be a mom, but I also want to still b...

Drained

I never have no social battery because my social battery is drained because I’m a single parent with no support. It’s so draining just being alone all the time with my son. I miss being left alone & the silence. I constantly have a headache and I’m constantly irritated by my child.

Anyone else feel like their PPD is ‘coming back?’

I was doing so good after I got out of the newborn trenches, but I feel it coming back it seems. I moved to a new state and lost my small “village,” on top of that. I’m so sick of pumping, the teething screeches are killing me (and yes I do every suggested thing for teething,) and motherhood is so lonely / repetitiv...

Feeling unattractive

34 weeks pregnant and feeling super unattractive. My husband doesn't seem interested in sex anymore. It's making me feel really insecure. Feeling really disconnected from him at a time that I really need him the most. Is anyone else dealing with similar feelings? How have you been coping with it?

Why do people think having a degree means you've done something with your life or equates to intelligence?

I was speaking with a coworker of mine and she made a couple comments that rubbed me the wrong way because she "assumed" we both have degrees. We were talking about her upcoming class reunion and she made a statement saying "Well nobody in my class has really done anything in their life....well made a few. One got...

Competition?

When I bring up the things I feel I’m doing alone in my partnership… my partner uses the word competition… mentioning “everything’s a competition to you” for example.. I know the context is vague but I’m not coming from a place of “one upping” the other person.. I literally feel like a slave in my own home because I...
