Yikes! Are you okay? Did the kids burn down the house or something?

I can't give you any advice. But this reminds me of a book I added to my reading list of family/marriage memoirs:

It might not help you other than giving you a laugh or helping you to feel less alone.

Try to get some alone time if you can, berrykat. Send the kids away with hubby or a sitter for the day. Relax or do something you've wanted to for a while. It will help put things into perspective a little. You'll be in my prayers.

Go to your family doctor as quickly as you can. He can diagnose depression and stress and possibly give you something to take the edge off while you figure out what to do.

I was recently treated for depression and I thought my world had collapsed around me. Depression can be caused by an imbalance in your brain chemicals and I learned that prolonged stress can cause that imbalance.

You can also take the depression test on and print off a copy to bring to your doctor. That's what I did and it literally saved my life.

Please get help.

are there any community groups who offer counselling on a sliding scale? i did this and it was like 5 bucks a week. even just talking it out to an impartial person might help you get perspective... i feel like this alot ... i'm taking celexa right now, but i've moved alot etc in the past just to change and get away and it never works. if you do decide to take meds make sure you are working through your stuff also or its just a waste of time...

I don't want to start a debate, but man, would national health care be nice. We gave it to the Iraqis, after all. I've seen too many people not get the care they need due to finances. Has happened to me, too.

Good luck, and hang in there. If you've identified that Seattle makes you happy, maybe you can enumerate specific parts about it that enhance your mood, and incorporate those into your personal life? Or visit more often, and eventually move there.

Mike, I know you mean well, but just because she's stressed out doesn't mean she'll hurt her children or leave them--this thread is a month old anyway (she's just venting her frustration).

I'm sorry that your dad left you and that you've had to deal with that kind of pain. It's not easy. Lots of children have to go through this sort of thing. It's not fair, but unfortunately, it's very real. Some pull through just fine, some unfortunately don't. It all has to do with the circumstances under which their parent(s) leave them, the individual child's environment, and their ability to cope. Hang in there.
